A full time postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available at UCL Ear Institute, to work on an Action on Hearing Loss funded project entitled “Does neuromodulation have what it takes to silence tinnitus for the long-term?” The aim of this project is to optimise High Definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS) and its impact on Tinnitus perception & underlying brain networks.
The project will involve conducting studies involving people with tinnitus at Ear Institute using HD-tDCS and fMRI at Birkbeck/UCL Centre for NeuroImaging (BUCNI) in collaboration with Prof Fred Dick (Professor of Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience).
The successful candidate will be expected to carry out HD-tDCS and imaging experiments to study the impact of HD-tDCS on tinnitus perception and underlying brain networks. This research post will require the individual to work independently under the mentorship of Associate Professor Raj Shekhawat, and in collaboration with the Prof Fred Dick for fMRI. The post-holder will be expected to have a proven track record in high impact research, from the initiation of the research to completion of the research manuscript.
The post is available from the 1st April 2020 and funded to 31st December 2022 in the first instance.
