Here’s a brand new PhD training opportunity, @dfg_public-funded, joint project of @ObleserLab at @UniLuebeck Germany, supervised by me, with star collaborator @GesaHartwigsen (@MPI_CBS) — starting next spring. Please be in touch. Please distribute widely. https://t.co/oTUEVVgQSG pic.twitter.com/L4DtFaqRJl

Our lab is proud and happy that another major stepping stone from our ERC consolidator project (“AUDADAPT”) is now accepted for publication in PLoS Biology! Congratulations to our first author Dr Mohsen Alavash, now a senior researcher in the Obleser lab in his own right.
Whoop. “ Dear Dr Alavash,
I am pleased to inform you that your manuscript has been formally accepted for publication in PLOS Biology.” — w/ @sarahs_tunes @ObleserLab @PLOSBiology https://t.co/cw8AQpo9UE

Our dear colleague and collaborator Peter Lakatos passed away suddenly two months ago. With Peter’s so untimely death at the age of 49, Neuroscience has suffered an unimaginable loss.
It has been an honour and privilege to contribute Peter Lakatos’ obituary to Nature Neuroscience.

The picture shows Peter just after or during his talk at our SNAP 2013 workshop at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig. Incidently, this is also the talk I referenced in my recent obituary, linked above.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new lab members:
Dr. Hong-Viet (“Hongi”) Ngo, who is a Uni Lübeck PhD alumnus himself, but joins us from the Donders Institute and who is an avid expert on sleep, memory, and auditory stimulation to entrain slow-wave sleep activity.
Markus Kemper just graduated from University of Lübeck and is a trained acoustics engineer and audiologist, ready to embark on a PhD dissecting the psychological and physiological reality of that elusive construct “listening effort”. Notably, Markus is funded by a joint effort of the Department of Psychology, University of Lübeck, and our Campus neighbour and industry partner, the Deutsche Hörgeräte Institut, DHI (German Institute of Hearing Aids).
What a time to make such career moves during a pandemic — good luck, and a productive and enjoyable time to both of you!
New PhD opportunity: @bjoherrmann (Rotman Research) and @ObleserLab at @UniLuebeck, Germany, have a @dfg_public-funded 3‑year PhD position! (neural dynamics, temporal expectation, ageing). Apply now until July 12! Please RT widely/alert your MSc/RAs. https://t.co/gphGf8Xx4c pic.twitter.com/GneEmTGvaP

There is now an opening for an up-to-4-year (!) postdoc position in my lab for late summer/fall. Join us in Lübeck, Germany, and do cool behavioural and neuroscience on neural dynamics, ageing, sensory decline with us!
Feel free to ring me up any time if you are interested in chatting beforehand. Looking forward to many interesting applications!
Im Februar hatte ich die Ehre, für die Kind Hörstiftung auf deren 2019er Symposium in Berlin unsere Arbeiten zur Vorhersage des Hörerfolgs exemplarisch anhand einiger unserer Studien allgemeinverständlich zu beleuchten. Ein 25-minütiges Video dieses Vortrags ist jetzt online.
(In February, I had the honour of presenting some of our recent work on predicting individuals’ listening success at the symposium of the Kind Hearing Foundation. A video in German is now available.)
