>Subject: PhD opportunities
>Applications are invited for a limited number of PhD studentships at the
>Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), Southampton, UK.
>Research opportunities include several in the general area of hearing and
>balance sciences, which will be based at ISVR's Hearing and Balance Centre.
>The research programme at the Hearing and Balance Centre ranges from
>fundamental studies to more clinically-directed research, with several
>projects linking these two extremes. Examples of current project areas
> * studies into human auditory function using otoacoustic emissions,
> other advanced measurement techniques and mathematical modelling approaches
> * early detection of onset of hearing loss
> * application of signal processing techniques to hearing aids and
> cochlear implants
> * evaluation of the benefits of new generations of digital hearing aids
> * improvement in the performance of hearing aid users over time
> * the use of auditory responses in monitoring the depth of anaesthesia
> * efficacy of strategies of treatment and management of patients with
> disturbances of balance.
>We also provide excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary research
>involving other research groups within ISVR, and welcome enquiries from
>suitable applicants interested in the above or other related areas.
>For preliminary discussions on PhDs in hearing and balance sciences,
>contact (as soon as possible):
