From: Jan van Santen <jphvs(at)ipr.research.att.com> To: jba(at)mirasol.research.att.com 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. CONTACT: Jan P.
