University of Sheffield Department of Computer Science TWO RESEARCH POSTS IN SPEECH AND HEARING Two research associate posts are available in the Speech and Hearing research group from October 1994. These contracts are associated with grants from the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council. Appointments will be made on the UK RA1A scale, with a starting salary of around 15K pounds p/a. Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent research experience in a relevant area. Post 1: 18-month contract on an existing research grant 'Interpreting auditory images using primitive and schema-driven grouping principles', which develops from established work at Sheffield in computational auditory scene analysis. Experience in auditory processing would be an advantage. Post 2: 36-month contract on a new grant 'Robust signal processing and recognition for occluded speech', which will address the problem of recognising speech evidence which has been segregated from an auditory scene. A strong mathematical background and/or experience in statistical or connectionist speech recognition would be an advantage.
