3 year PhD studentship at University of Nottingham’s Hearing Sciences

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3 year PhD studentship based in the Scottish Section of the University of Nottingham’s Hearing Sciences department, located in Glasgow. Please could you please share this with any students that are relevant?

DEADLINE: 29th March

This PhD will investigate how people’s ability to make predictions when listening to speech relates to their physical behaviour in conversation. It will take typical lab based measures of prediction during speech listening (e.g., a visual world paradigm), explore ways of measuring predictive behaviour in conversation (such as anticipatory head turns or gaze to a new talker, smooth turn-taking etc), and investigate the link between the two. The student will study both normal hearing and hearing impaired participants in different acoustic environments. These experiments will be carried out in our specially equipped laboratory, in which several people can hold a conversation while their body and eye movements are tracked, and the student will be trained to use a range of relevant experimental techniques. This PhD falls within a larger research programme investigating prediction and hearing loss, with the ultimate aim of understanding the basis of social difficulty to develop hearing technology able to help.

Applicants should be a UK national and have an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Hearing Sciences or a related subject (relevant Master’s
degree will be an advantage). We are looking for a strong background in research methods (multi-method experience will be a bonus) as well as a
keen interest in speech and communication.
