PhD position (full-time; 36 months starting Sept. 2017) is offered by the Department of Otolaryngology, Oncological Laryngology, Audiology and Phoniatrics , Medical University of Lodz, Poland.
Stimulation techniques in tinnitus have been used since last century. Since i n the majority of cases tinnitus results from peripheral auditory pathological activity (e . g. hearing loss) techniques of peripheral electric and magnetic stimulations of the ear have been developed in our clinic. Although peripheral stimulations aim to modify cochlear and acoustic nerve activity, alternations at a central level after a single electric stimulation of the ear were recorded.
Position of the tinnitus researcher will be carried in University Clinic offering excellent opportunities of professional development . Work of the PhD Student will be focused on further advancing and developing of the most effective parameters of the ear stimulations as well as modifications of the stimulation techniques in order to i mprove the effectiveness of the treatment. Basing on previous and future experiences research will concentrate as well on tinnitus subtyping in terms of the response to ear stimulation. Thanks to a close collaboration with Lodz University of Technology we realize innovative projects with the support of the most modern and progressive technical solutions.
