JOB OPENING: for someone to work in the text-to-speech synthesis group
at AT&T Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey, for a two-year
period [with a possibility of becoming permanent]. Must be able to start
before October 1.

KEY RESPONSIBILITY: build a very high-accuracy automatic speech segmentor,
based on phonetic principles and using various types of statistical tools
[including standard speech recognition algorithms as well as multivariate
statistical methods, e.g., discriminant analysis.]

In addition to this narrowly focused -- but enormously challenging --
project, we would also expect this person to contribute to related areas,
such as automatic prosodic labeling and concatenative unit generation.

These projects require knowledge of phonetics, signal processing,
and statistics; C programming skills are vital.

Salary would be about $50,000 per year, with health benefits.
