For the Phd project "Use of non-invasive brain stimulation for tinnitus management", Associated Prof. Giriraj Singh Shekhawat (Raj) is offering a fully funded full-time PhD studentship at UCL Ear Institute, London, UK,
Proposed PhD project will investigate optimization of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (HD/tDCS) and novel ways to manage tinnitus by conducting studies using audiological and brain functioning evaluations. The goal of this project is to enhance our understanding of how neuromodulation works for tinnitus suppression and developing novel protocols for tinnitus management.
Key requirements: The successful PhD candidate will be involved in planning/programming of experiments, recruiting and testing subjects, collecting and analysing data, reporting the results for publication and writing a thesis. The student will be expected to act as a demonstrator for our degree programmes in Audiology for 180 hours a year. Knowledge and background in Audiology, brain imagining, quantitative research methods and excellent communication skills will be suitable for this project.
Candidates must have a first or upper-second class UK Bachelor’s degree or a Master degree in Audiology, Neuroscience, Psychology, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering or a closely related field, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard from a recognised higher education institution. Non-UK students will be expected to hold an equivalent qualification and demonstrate mastery of the English language at 'Standard' level (as described by the UCL Graduate English Language Requirements).
