Within the European Training Network CherISH, there are openning 12 PhD 
positions. The network investigates spatial hearing in cochlear implant 
users. A cochlear implant (CI) is a hearing prosthesis that bypasses 
sound transduction in the middle and inner ear and directly stimulates 
the auditory nerve electrically. During the last decades CIs have been 
shown to successfully restitute hearing in many deaf patients. While 
speech comprehension in CI users works well in quiet surroundings, it 
becomes more difficult in noisy environments. CherISH aims to enhance 
spatial hearing in cochlear implant users, facilitating the attenuation 
of disruptive background noise and the precise orientation of attention 
toward the target source of sound. The project endeavors to enhance 
spatial hearing in cochlear implant users by employing cutting-edge 
technological advancements and personalized virtual reality-based 
training strategies that cater to the specific needs of the patients. 
Further information on the projects can be found on the EURAXESS 
platform (https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/159007 

The network consists of 7 Partners and 4 Associated Partners (7 
countries) who will provide research facilities and training. Applicants 
should have a Master degree in life sciences (biology, neurobiology, 
neurophysiology, neuroscience, medicine or closely related fields) 
and/or a Master in biomedical engineering, physics and neurocomputation, 
machine learning. The candidate should be highly motivated with a strong 
interest in the manifold aspects of hearing.

For the EU-funded positions, only applicants are eligible who fulfil the 
EU mobility rule, according to which they must not have spent more than 
one year in the hosting country during the last three years immediately 
before the date of the recruitment. As part of the research network, 
doctoral students will complete a comprehensive training programme 
together with the other network students. The doctoral candidates are 
supposed to carry out the planned research project with great care and 
responsibility. Applicants for the positions will be selected on the 
basis of expertise and skills by a local selection committee (one per 
host organisation).
