We seek a motivated

PhD student
(75 % TV-L E13 position, 3 years)

for developing and testing individualized algorithms to improve spatial hearing

This position is embedded within the ERC-funded project "Individualized Binaural Diagnostics and Technology".

In addition, the position offers opportunities to collaborate and associate with the DFG collaborative research center "Hearing Acoustics" ( as well as with the cluster of excellence "Hearing4All" ( The Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics offers an international scientific environment as well as access to world-class research facilities (

Applicants for the position must hold an academic university degree (master or equivalent) in hearing technology, physics, electrical engineering, or a related discipline, or they must be in the process of finalizing their degree and obtain it prior to signing the contract.

Applicants need to have a strong theoretical background. The key requirement for this position is Signal- and System Theory. Further requirements are programming skills (e.g., Matlab or Python), basic knowledge about the auditory system or audio signal processing, and at least elementary knowledge of the German language is required before starting the position. Knowledge about hearing impairment or about hearing aid or cochlear implant signal processing is beneficial.

Working in a team within a relatively large project, the student is going to apply and modify complex computer models of the auditory system, develop pathology-specific hearing device algorithms, and set-up and conduct listening experiments with hearing impaired listeners.

The University of Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of female employees in the field of science. Therefore, female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. In accordance to § 21 Section 3 NHG, female candidates with equal qualifications will be preferentially considered. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualification.

Applications including CV, motivation letter, copies of the most important certificates, and the name and contact details of at least one person who is willing to give a reference should be sent to
