Ann: RESPITE: Positions in speech recognition & scene analysis

Dear List -

I'd be grateful for you to pass on the enclosed announcement of
available research positions to anyone who might be interested.
This forthcoming European-funded project will, among other things,
work towards strengthening the links between speech recognition and
complex auditory phenomena such as scene analysis.

RESPITE is a collaborative  project to be funded by the EC ESPRIT Long Term
Research programme. RESPITE is currently negotiating its contract, and is
planned to run from January 1999 for 3 years.

RESPITE will research new methodologies for Automatic Speech Recognition
based on missing-data theory and multiple classification streams. It will
provide a link between ASR and models of hearing, particularly work in
Computational Auditory Scene Analysis, which it will also support. In-car
applications and cellular telephone recognition will be targeted.

The RESPITE partners are

* Speech and Hearing Research Group, Department of Computer Science,
  University  of Sheffield, GB (coordinator).
* Daimler-Benz Research, Ulm, DE.
* FPMs Mons, BE.
* Institute Communication Parle, Grenoble, FR.
* IDIAP, Martigny, CH.
* MATRA Communications, Bois d'Arcy, FR.

* ICSI, Berkeley, CA, USA will be involved as a subcontractor.

Subject to successful contract negotiation, RESPITE will employ a number of
researchers from January 99. Applicants should have a Ph.D or equivalent
research experience.

If you are interested, send your CV and the names and addresses of two
referees to the address below. Indicate what aspects of RESPITE interest you,
and when you expect to be available.
