PhD position in auditory and non-invasive brain stimulation

Objectives: The PhD student will actively participate in the training activities of the European School on Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research (ESIT). The lab for neuro-stimulation in Regensburg has been studying the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on tinnitus patients.
This position will focus on carrying out empirical studies on chronic tinnitus patients, combining auditory stimulation with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation. The PhD student will also participate in conducting studies using Electroencephalography (EEG). The PhD student will define meaningful subtype constructs and develop a position statement proposing a global subtyping framework. This will be achieved by combining novel data collection methods with innovative interdisciplinary synthesis of evidence that includes expert consensus.

Expected results: We expect the first interdisciplinary synthesis and position statement concerning subtype constructs and recommendations about minimum standards for data collection that would adequately permit tinnitus subtyping. This will contribute to setting a first European standard for the tinnitus categorization.
