FW: PhD and Postoc opportunities at Northwestern University, Chicago, USA


The Interactive Audio Lab at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, USA  (http://music.cs.northwestern.edu ) seeks two researchers at either the doctoral student or postdoctoral level to work on robust interactive audio source separation. This project will build the next generation of audio editing and production tools that incorporate audio source separation into the workflow. This will involve research in building mixed initiative interfaces, multi-cue audio source separation algorithms, and machine learning as well as embodying them in actual working systems. Individuals with experience in audio signal processing, machine learning and human computer interaction (HCI) are encouraged to apply.


The Interactive Audio Lab, headed by Professor Bryan Pardo (http://www.cs.northwestern.edu/~pardo/ ), has a particular focus on using signal processing and machine learning tools in the service of cutting edge user interface design for non-speech audio.  Recent graduates from the lab work throughout industry and academia at institutions such as Bose, Gracenote and the University of Rochester.  Northwestern University is a leading university in the United States and the Times Higher Education World University Ranking placed Northwestern 21st out of 400 world universities in the 2014-15 academic year.


How to apply to the lab as a PhD student


Those primarily interested in the human computer interaction portion of the work should apply to the Technology and Social Behavior Program (http://tsb.northwestern.edu/admissions.php ) . Those primarily interested in working on the signal processing and machine learning aspects of the work should apply as a Computer Science applicant through the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (http://www.eecs.northwestern.edu/eecs-graduate-admissions ). 


How to apply to the lab as a postdoctoral researcher


Individuals with relevant recent doctorates should email Bryan Pardo directly at pardo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.  Please include a CV and a brief description of how your interests and background relate to the project.
