Postdoctoral position in Cognitive Hearing Science, Linköping University, Sweden

We are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic postdoc to work on a project investigating cognitive factors for speech communication in acoustically adverse conditions, conducted in collaboration between Linköping University (Emil Holmer and Henrik Danielsson) and Uni Mainz (Daniel Oberfeld-Twistel). When following a speech conversation in an acoustically difficult situation like a crowded restaurant, the accuracy of speech identification depends on the hearing thresholds of a listener and suprathreshold auditory abilities. However, cognitive processes also play a crucial role in speech understanding. In this project, we want to go beyond existing research by investigating in detail which specific memory processes, specific attentional mechanisms, and linguistic abilities are relevant for speech perception in noise. To this end, the experiments will include tasks assessing the different cognitive processes related to working memory (based on current WM models), different attentional networks, sensory memory, linguistic abilities, and relevant psychoacoustic characteristics of the participants. Application deadline is the 3rd of January 2022.
