PhD Opportunities Within Our Lab

The Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Lab is seeking candidates for a PhD program who are interested in auditory processing, specifically related to hearing impairment, aging, tinnitus, hyperacusis and misophonia.

The PhD may be obtained in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science or from the Graduate Program in Neuroscience, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Husain can mentor PhD students in either program.

Our lab has been continuously funded to conduct brain imaging and behavioral research on hearing loss and tinnitus for the past 10 years.

Over the past year, our exciting new findings have been published in publications such as Brain Research, Hearing Research, PLoS ONE, American Journal of Audiology, Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience, Scientific Reports, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience and Aging and Health Research.

We are especially interested in candidates who are comfortable with computation and neuroscience and have a passion for helping patients.
