Position Summary
The Waisman Center is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about human development,
developmental disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases throughout the lifespan. One of only 14 centers of its kind in the United States,
the Waisman Center encompasses laboratories for biomedical and behavioral research, a brain imaging center, and a clinical bio-
manufacturing facility for the production of pharmaceuticals for early stage human clinical trials. In addition to its research efforts, the
Center provides an array of services to people with developmental disabilities, offers numerous educational and outreach programs to young
children and their families, and trains scientists and clinicians who will serve our nation in the future.

The Binaural Hearing and Speech Laboratory at the Waisman Center is run by Professor Ruth Litovsky. Binaural hearing refers to being able to
integrate information that the brain receives from the two ears. Binaural hearing is known to help us with the ability to listen in noisy,
complex auditory environments, and to localize sound sources. The lab studies binaural hearing in persons who have normal hearing and in
persons who are deaf and use cochlear implants (CIs) and are interested in whether CI users can benefit from having two (bilateral) CIs and
whether, for children, having bilateral CIs at a young age offers unique advantages.

This position will provide research assistance to staff, students and researchers in the Binaural Hearing and Speech Laboratory. This
position will be responsible for writing software for data collection and analysis, in particular for SR Research Eyelink and Optitrack
hardware systems. This person will perform some aspects of digital signal processing and calibration, perform some hardware modifications,
and provide support for the development of web server/client applications and app development for remote data collection.

Individuals must complete reporting requirements, which includes but is not limited to effort
reporting or outside activities reporting in a timely manner.
