Dear list, We are offering two positions on distant-mic ASR in the context of a large-scale R&D project on voice control of home appliances involving 5 companies and 3 academic labs. Successful candidates will perform research on state-of-the-art acoustic models and contribute to transfer their ideas into a commercial ASR product. * Research engineer (ideal start: Jan/Feb 2015 - duration: 2 years) - collaborate with a speech company on the DNN acoustic model setup - assess various multicondition training and speaker adaptation strategies for reverberant and noisy speech - design improved confidence measures * Postdoc (ideal start: Apr 2015 - duration: 2 years) - explore adaptation of DNNs to the reverberation conditions - explore adaptation of DNNs to noise by uncertainty propagation - design improved uncertainty estimators Salary: 2600 to 3300 €/month gross depending on experience, plus free health insurance and additional benefits Ideal profile: - PhD on speech processing, machine learning, audio signal processing, or applied statistics - proficient programming in C++, shell, Matlab/Python - optional experience with Kaldi or another ASR software To apply: send a CV, a motivation letter, a list of publications, and one or more recommendation letters to emmanuel.vincent@xxxxxxxx and irina.illina@xxxxxxxx Applications will be assessed on a continuous basis until Dec 12. Please apply as soon as possible before that date. References: [1] M. Ravanelli, M.
