[E-Job] Postdoctoral Research opportunity in Robust ASR / Multisource Decoding

Postdoctoral Research Position,
Speech and Hearing Research Group, Department of Computer Science,
University of Sheffield, Sheffield, England

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the
Speech and Hearing research group, Department of Computer Science,
University of Sheffield,  UK (http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/spandh). This
position is funded by a UK EPSRC grant 'Multisource Decoding for speech
in the presence of other sound sources'. It is available immediately,
for up to 3 years.

Multisource decoding is a technique which integrates time-frequency
glimpses of speech provided by primitive computational auditory scene
analysis. The decoding algorithm then uses missing data techniques to
find the best subset of these integrated regions to match statistical
speech models. The application is to robust automatic speech recognition
in unpredictable listening conditions. For more details, see:


A background is speech or hearing research (Ph.D or equivalent
experience) is necessary.

in this project are Phil Green, Martin Cooke and Guy Brown.
