PhD Positions at Indiana University

Dear list,

The Department of Intelligent Systems Engineering (ISE) at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB) welcomes the prospective PhD students in the area of Machine Learning applied to Signal Processing. Specifically, applicants who are interested in audio research are strongly encouraged to contact Prof. Minje Kim (minje@xxxxxxxxxxx), who is leading audio research at ISE.

Audio research at ISE focuses on the cutting-edge of technology, at the intersection of human-level artificial intelligence and systems-level signal processing. The engineering problems we study include: 
  • Deep learning systems which can be deployed on small devices and perform optimal speech enhancement in a low-power real-time context
  • Applications which fully utilize the sensors on handheld/wearable devices, listening to their environment and reacting to events of interest, in a resource-efficient manner
  • Frameworks to handle large sets of unorganized user-recorded or user-labeled signals and extracting meaningful data cost-effectively 
Our research is also open to new ideas and application areas, from biomedical applications to Internet-of-Things and much more. Please visit Minje Kim’s website (http://minjekim.com) for more information.

Information for applicants:
  • Applicants with a relevant background in one of the following areas are strongly preferred: electrical engineering, computer engineering, statistics, and computer science
  • PhD study at ISE is often financially covered for associate instructors (teaching assistants) or research assistants meeting a particular criteria (e.g. English fluency, maintaining good academic records, etc).

ISE is a brand-new engineering program, which is designed for what engineering is and will be, rather than what it was. The students will have a unique opportunity to collaborate with various engineering disciplines the department encompasses: Intelligent Systems, Molecular and Nanoscale Engineering, Cyber Physical Systems, Computer Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Neuro-engineering, and Bioengineering. Among them, Intelligent Systems (IS) track, where the advertised PhD position will primarily belong to, is to set up the common goal and to build the fundamental background for all the other tracks. In the IS track, the PhD students will not only push the limits of the state-of-the-art AI/Machine Learning research but also embed the intelligence into the cutting-edge engineering systems that deal with real-world signals.

ISE belongs to the School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC), which is the first of its kind and among the largest in the country, with unsurpassed breadth. Its mission is to excel and lead in education, research, and outreach spanning and integrating the full breadth of computing and information technology. It includes Computer Science, Informatics, Information and Library Science, and Intelligent Systems Engineering with over 100 faculty, 1,000 graduate students, and 1,400 undergraduate majors on the Bloomington Campus. It offers Ph.D.’s in Computer Science, Informatics, Information Science and Intelligent Systems Engineering. For more information about SoIC: http://soic.indiana.edu

Indiana University Bloomington is an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
