      Applications are invited for a PhD student position at the Lab for Auditory & Integrative Neuroscience (www.lab-audin.org) at the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, University of Texas at Dallas, USA. The successful candidate will do research in the area of auditory neuroscience with a focus on patients with tinnitus, musical hallucinosis, hyperacusis or congenital deafness using neuroimaging techniques such as high density EEG and rsfMRI as well non-invasive neuromodulation techniques such as TMS and tDCS. There is also the possibility to be involved in going clinical trials.
      For an informal discussion please contact Professor Sven Vanneste (sven.vanneste@utdallas.edu). For more details on the Neuroscience PhD program go to http://bbs.utdallas.edu/cogneuro/. To submit an application, go to http://www.utdallas.edu/admissions/graduate/.
      Applications have to be in by December 1, 2013.

      I guess that's good news. Sven Vanneste is an experienced tinnitus researchers who worked with Dirk De Ridder when they were still in Belgium. Brains rarely stay in Belgium. What for ?

      Anyway i wonder what the stipend will be. I have heard horrors stories of PHD candidates and postdocs being paid less than a cashier in the US. The allusion of financial aid in the form of teachings does not bode well.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      eardrum rupture from virus; barotrauma from ETD
      Thanks for the post! There are many notables at UT Dallas--including Michael Kilgard, Ph.D., of MicroTransponder, and AR Moller, Ph.D., who is also on the TRI Board of Directors and its Scientific Committee.

      I only wish the position specified tinnitus research exclusively!

      Ph.D. student positions never pay a lot. It's all about establishing credentials for your curriculum vitae, which should insure you a quality position after graduation. But the doctoral position should also include a tuition stipend. That stipend and your teaching salary means you'll be able to pursue your Ph.D. and live independantly in an apartment without incurring tens of thousands in student loans! All considered, it's a great way to get your Ph.D. :)

      (And I do know the pay is modest. But universities do not have the funds to pay market rates.)
