Due to success in EU funding, we are seeking to fill two vacancies
as soon as possible.

Applications are invited for two Research Fellowships (graduates
and postdocs) on the European IST-FET project SOb.

The SOb (S-ounding Ob-ject) project aims at developing versatile and
efficient sound models that are based on the physics of sound-generating
phenomena, thus being easily integrated within artefacts and appliances
that interact physically with humans. The SOb project is part of the
IST-FET Disappearing Computer proactive initiative.

Applicants should hold, or expect to hold by the appointment date, a
degree in either computer science, computer engineering, physics or a
related scientific discipline.  Good programming and scientific writing
are essential. A PhD or previous research experience will be an
advantage. The candidates, who are expected to work in a international
framework, should have good familiarity with written and spoken english.

The successful candidates for the SOb positions should have competencies
in audio signal processing and sound synthesis. Specific experience
in physical modeling or auditory display will be appreciated.

The Vision, Image Processing, and Sound (VIPS) Laboratory was
established in the Dipartimento Scientifico e Tecnologico at the
University of Verona in 1999 with the goal of doing theoretical and
applied research in the fields of Computer Vision, Image Processing
and Sound Processing. Our research is focused both on investigating
the underlying scientific principles and on the application to
problems of real-world importance. The VIPS laboratory includes
currently 2 faculty members and 4 research assistants and
PhD students.

Expected inception of employment: January-February 2000
