Offer Description

Cochlear implants are implantable devices that restore hearing in cases with severe/complete hearing loss. Although it is a safe and established procedure, the variability in outcomes is large, and computer simulations may play a role in more targeted patient-specific treatments. In this project, we will develop systems for cochlear implant simulation and planning.

The Research Assistant will collaborate with the group in the development of software and systems to integrate the developed algorithms and prototypes, and participate in their validation.

Tasks to be performed: Software and systems development for planning and simulation of cochlear implantation surgeries.
