Offer description

An internship position for a second year MSc student in biology, audiology, biophysics or neurosciences is available from the first trimester of 2022 at the Centre for Research and Innovation in Humans (CERIAH) codirected by Professor Paul Avan and Professor Hung Thai-Van at the Institut de l’Audition, Institut Pasteur, in Paris, France.

We are seeking an outstanding, highly motivated second year MSc student for a project on fine characterization of auditory impairments. The goal of this large-scale project is to improve the early detection of age-related hearing loss to better manage its effects on public health.

Institut de l’Audition and CERIAH 

The Institut de l’Audition (Hearing Institute) is an interdisciplinary research institute with the objective of promoting integrative approaches to basic auditory neuroscience, developing innovative diagnostic tools and preventive and curative treatments for hearing disabilities. The Institut de l’Audition brings together world-class researchers from various fields, including neurophysiology, computational neuroscience, auditory cognition, genetics and genomics, cell biology and gene therapy. Most teams associate fundamental researchers and MDs and conduct research protocols applicable to humans with clinicians as co-investigators.

The Institut de l’Audition, located in the centre of Paris is hosting the Centre for Research and Innovation in Humans (CERIAH), dedicated to the running of research protocols on human volunteers (excluding clinical trials for drugs). Providing a very complete set of cutting-edge equipment, dedicated staff composed of research audiologists, engineers and project manager and know-how in all the auditory science domains, the CERIAH aims to increase the understanding of hearing problems, with a view to developing personalized medicine.

Mission

The student will work on a large-scale project aiming to better understand the mechanisms of age-related hearing loss by:

  • studying the basic exploration tools of the inner ear systems, namely otoacoustic emissions, audiometry, auditory and vestibular electrophysiology and vestibulocochlear tests and psychoacoustics,
  • participating to the data collection in several hundreds of participants with age-related hearing loss, in collaboration with a European research group and the experts of the CERIAH.

Qualifications

Candidate profile:

  • A BSc in physics, biophysics, biology, neurosciences or related field is required,
  • Experience in audiology would be highly appreciated,
  • Experience or interest in research involving the human person,
  • Some fluency in the French language will be a plus for interacting with the volunteers.

Candidates should be interested in the use of at least some of the techniques mentioned. The scope of the work can be tailored according to the candidate interests and skills.

We are looking for a curious, passionate and friendly person.

The internship compensation is available for the duration of the internship (5 – 6 months) with a possibility to continue for a PhD thesis in Angers, France. The internship will take place in the beautiful city of Paris, in the brand-new Institut de l’Audition which also may provide exciting career opportunities for young talented researchers. Interested candidates should submit a CV and cover letter mentioning a few referees who might provide a letter of recommendation.

 

Starting: first trimester of 2022 preferred

Compensation: minimum legal gratification
