Communication Sciences Research - TEMPORARY (Local students OK, Software development- MATLAB & Python)

The Communication Sciences Research Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital (CCHMC) conducts research into development and disorders of hearing, voice, reading, and language in children. To support our research in hearing we seek temporary software development personnel to work on projects that:
  • Edit and adapt third party research applications for local requirements
  • Develop web-based interfaces for hearing tests and questionnaires
  • Make third party applications (designed primarily for adults) child friendly
  • Create and adapt interfaces for eye-tracking devices
    Projects will typically involve 5-10 weeks of work (30-40 hours/week) paid at standard CCHMC rates. Desirably, we would like to work with the same developer through several projects over the next 3 months, with the possibility of extending after the initial period.
    A typical profile for a successful candidate will be a recent graduate or an exceptional undergraduate in electrical or biomedical engineering, computer science, physics, or a related discipline, but others with suitable skills and experience are also encouraged to make an application.
    You will need to demonstrate proficiency in Matlab, C , .NET framework (including Visual Basic and C) signal processing, hardware-software interfaces, and auditory stimulus development. Additional training will be considered where necessary.
    Developers will be required to engage with psychological, physiological, engineering, and audiological researchers and could earn publication credit – depending on the significance of contribution made. We work flexibly, creatively, and enthusiastically and are looking for others with those attributes to join us.
    CCHMC's Vision is to: To be the leader in improving child health. If you share that vision and meet the qualifications, we encourage you to apply…
