Research Fellow -Arenberg Lab - 40 Hours

Partners Healthcare System Boston , MA 02298

Posted 2 months ago

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the lab of Dr. Julie Arenberg (formerly Bierer) with a focus on developing and assessing cochlear implant programming that is individualized for children and adults.

The Arenberg lab studies hearing and speech perception in children and adults, many of whom have cochlear implants. We also measure evoked potentials and develop computational models of the interface between cochlear implants and the target auditory neurons.

Recently, we have begun to compare physiological and perceptual measures between early implanted children and post-linguistically deafened adults who were implanted as adults. Future work will explore auditory development, plasticity and training in cochlear implant listeners. Our primary goal is to better understand the auditory system as it has likely been altered by etiology, experience and the cochlear implant itself. We integrate underlying neuroscience principles with the practice of clinical audiology.

The fellow will have appointment at Massachusetts Eye and Ear (MEE) and Harvard Medical School (HMS). MEE, HMS provide rich intellectual and scientific environment and infrastructure to carry out the proposed research and receive training and career development.

Interested applicants should email their CV, names of 3 references and cover letter to

Requires a Masters and/or Ph.D in their field of specialty. 1 to 5 years experience preferred.
