Electrophysiology to Optimize Hearing in Cochlear Implant Recipients

项目介绍

After cochlear implantation surgery, recipients currently have many follow-up appointments in the clinic during which the cochlear implant’s sound processing parameters are optimized. The project aims to develop and test a set of measurements to partially automate this process and transfer it to the home environment.

The successful applicant will join the research group “Otology and Biomechanics of Hearing” at the University Hospital Zurich (https://www.otobm.uzh.ch/en.html) and will be enrolled in the doctoral program at the University of Zurich.The project is conducted in collaboration with the company Sonova.

Your responsibilities

  • Develop and perform electrophysiological measurements in cochlear implant recipients duringand after surgery
  • Investigate electrical impedance measurements through the cochlear implant electrode arrayin the laboratory
  • Contribute to the development of an algorithm for adapting sound processing parametersbased on the measurements
  • Test the developed methods in a clinical study
  • Analyze data, write publications, and present research outcomes at conferences

Your profile

We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate with:

  • An interest in electrophysiology, hearing research, and working with patients in a clinicalenvironment
  • A background in audiology, natural science, engineering, medicine, or similar
  • Excellent English speaking and writing skills
  • German speaking skills, or a willingness to learn German
  • Programming knowledge (Matlab, Python or R) is preferred

What we offer

  • An interdisciplinary work environment with researchers from diverse clinical, engineering, andscientific backgrounds, as well as audiologists and clinicians. Researchers are involved inboth fundamental and translational projects related to hearing.
  • Central work location in the vibrant city of Zurich, with access to clinical facilities and well-equipped laboratories.
  • Possibilities for education and networking by participating in courses and events organized bythe PhD program, and attending national and international conferences
  • Involvement in shaping and teaching courses about hearing
  • Contact and collaboration with industrial partners

Place of work

Universitätsspital Zürich, Rämistrasse, Zürich, Switzerland

Start of employment

The preferred start date is the 1st of September 2022. The project duration is three years, and the employment and salary conditions adhere to the regulations of the University of Zurich and Innosuisse (the Swiss Innovation Agency).
