Info Beasiswa 2016 : 3-year PhD studentship available at UCL concerning Auditory Processing Disorder

9.5.16 |

PhD studentship available
*Improving the understanding and diagnosis of auditory processing
disorder (APD)*
Based at UCL Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/pals/research/shaps

Sponsored by Action on Hearing Loss
*DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: Friday 26th May 2016*

A 3 year studentship for the academic year commencing September 2016 is
available to study the auditory, speech perceptual and language
abilities of children suspected of having an auditory processing
disorder (APD). The main presenting complaint in APD concerns
difficulties hearing speech in noisy backgrounds without any hearing
loss. APD is, however, poorly understood, and there is much dispute
about it, even to the extent of doubts about its existence as an
independent disorder. Other developmental disorders frequently co-occur
with APD (e.g., language impairment), and may in fact be responsible for
the diagnosis. We hope to improve the diagnosis and treatment of APD by
clarifying its nature and developing appropriate diagnostic tests for
it. The primary supervisor will be Professor Stuart Rosen with mentoring
by Dr Doris Bamiou of the UCL Ear Institute and Great Ormond Street
Hospital for Children.

UCL is one of the world’s leading research universities, with particular
strengths in the study of language, hearing and speech sciences. The
department has access to a wide-range of research facilities, including
anechoic chambers for recording and testing, EEG, eye-tracking and
pupillometry, all with extensive technical support.

We seek a highly motivated, intellectually curious and hard working
person with a good first degree in Experimental Psychology, Cognitive
Neuroscience, Hearing Science, Audiology, Speech & Language Therapy or a
related field. Highly desirable in a successful candidate will be:
experience of working with primary-school aged children; expertise
concerning developmental disorders in children; knowledge and expertise
in statistical analyses; experience in computer programming in any
language. Any offer of a position will be subject to an Enhanced
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

The studentship provides three years full funding for postgraduate
training, covering tuition fees and a maintenance grant starting at £17k
in year 1 (£17.5k Year 2 and £18k in Year 3). Full funding is only
available for UK/EU citizens. UCL’s policies on determining this status
can be found at:

Applicants should send a CV and the names and email addresses of two
referees to Stuart Rosen at stuart@phon.ucl.ac.uk (from whom further
information about the project can be obtained). A covering letter should
include an outline of the applicant's long-term research and
professional goals, as well as describe any particular expertise they
have that they think may be applicable in this work.
