Research studentship in computational auditory scene analysis


A UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) quota
award is available at the Department of Computer Science, University
of Sheffield, for a research studentship in computational auditory
scene analysis.

The project will focus on neural network models of auditory
perception, particularly the role of neural oscillations in
mechanisms of auditory grouping. Candidates should have a strong
background in mathematics. Previous experience in neural computing
would be an advantage, but is not essential.

The award is intended primarily for UK citizens but in some
circumstances EU citizens may also be eligible. An EPSRC quota award
pays tuition fees and a subsistence allowance of around 5100 pounds
sterling per annum for up to 3 years, subject to satisfactory
progress. There are additional allowances according to age and
marital status.
