  Improving the lives of older adults with hearing loss: Developing a self-report measure of effortful listening to guide clinical practice
  Dr A Heinrich, Prof K Munro, Dr R Millman
Applications accepted all year round
Hearing loss is the most prevalent sensory deficit. In the UK, more than 10 million adults have a hearing loss. Because it is often associated with old age and the size of the older population is growing, it is predicted that there will be more than 14 million people with a hearing loss by 2030.
  (MBRC) Widening uptake and adherence to treatment with hearing aids via a new model of service delivery
  Prof K Munro, Dr M Stone, Prof H Dillon, Dr D Moore
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The average age of first-time wearers of hearing aids dispensed by the NHS is 74 years, by which time candidates typically have a moderate hearing loss and are struggling in many listening situations.
  Understanding the mechanisms underlying efferent re-wiring in the aging cochlea.
  Prof W Marcotti
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
a) Background and need for the research. Age-related hearing loss (ARHL), also known as presbycusis, is the most common health condition in the elderly.
  Novel biomimetic acoustic sensors inspired by insect hearing
  Prof J Windmill
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position to work on an exciting inter-disciplinary project. The project aims to investigate the hearing organs of various insects, and use this biological knowledge to inspire the development of novel acoustic sensors with biomimetic properties.
  Functional morphology and variability of the auditory system - frameworks in the search for human speech evolution
  Dr A Stoessel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The capacity for vocal communication using speech is a unique characteristic of modern humans and its origin during human evolution remains obscure.
  Developing a questionnaire to assesses patients’ experiences of audiology services
  Prof K Munro, Prof C Armitage
Applications accepted all year round
There is growing interest in measuring patients’ experiences of clinical services. This can be used to measure quality, evaluate quality improvement initiatives and compare services.
  Developing a therapy for hearing loss using human pluripotent stem cells
  Prof M Rivolta
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The vast majority of cases of deafness are produced by the irreversible loss of the sensory hair cells and their associated neurons.
  Cognitive Listening: Speech perception in noise within a cognitive framework
  Prof S Mattys
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
Professor Sven has received funding from the Leverhulme Trust to study speech perception in adverse conditions, with a focus on the effects of energetic and informational interferences on speech intelligibility.
