Dear List, Here is a job announcement that I received today: Al ----- Original Message ----- From: Louis Thibault <Louis.Thibault(at)crc.ca> To: <bregman(at)hebb.psych.mcgill.ca> Sent: Friday, June 01, 2001 10:31 AM Subject: RESEARCH POSITION AT THE CRC Dear Dr. Bregman, I am managing the Advanced Audio Systems group at the Communications Research Centre in Ottawa. I am looking for a good candidate to fill a vacant research position in psychoacoustics. I have included below a brief description of the duties of the position as well as of the qualifications sought-after. As you can see, we would like to investigate the possibility of using (computational) aditory scene analysis as a mean of separating sources mixed in an audio signal. I would appreciate if you could forward a copy of this email to individuals whom you think are qualified and could be interested or else forward me their name and coordinates so that I can contact them. I am looking for an experienced individual, preferably with a PhD and who has initiative, autonomy and leadership to lead the psychacoustic research activities in my group. Interested individuals can obtain more information on the position available and apply on-line at the following website address: http://www.crc.ca/en/html/crc/careers/jobs I thank you for your help. Best regards. Louis Thibault A position is available in the Advanced Audio Systems group of the Communications Research Centre. This group carries out Research and Development (R&D) in advanced audio technologies which will be used in the future over wireless transmission systems as well as telecommunication networks such as the Internet. The incumbent will lead and carry out R&D to study, characterize and develop computational models of the human auditory system with respect to sound perception. Modelling the behaviour of the auditory system with respect to masking and auditory scene analysis is of particular interest. These models of the human ear are used in a number of different technologies such as automated measurement of audio quality, audio source separation and audio source coding (audio compression) systems for multimedia, sound and television broadcasting as well as audio delivery over the Internet. The work will be carried out in a multidisciplinary team of researchers which includes experts in audio signal processing, sound perception and subjective evaluation of audio quality. The group has world class facilities (two calibrated listening rooms with professional quality audio equipment in its Audio Perception Laboratory) to carry out this research. Information on the work and facilities of the Advanced Audio Systems group can be found at http://www.drb.crc.ca/aas/default.htm. Information on the organization can be found at http://www.crc.ca and information on Industry Canada is located at http://www.ic.gc.ca. EDUCATION: Doctorate or a Masters degree from a recognized university in psychology OR Doctorate in Electrical Engineering, Systems and Computer Engineering or some other specialty relevant to research in psychoacoustics. EXPERIENCE: Experience in experimental psychology and/or designing, planning and carrying out research in psychoacoustics. Experience in developing computational models of the human auditory system. Experience in programming in C/C++ would be an asset. KNOWLEDGE: Knowledge of digital audio technologies and digital signal processing theory and techniques. ********************************************************* Louis Thibault Manager, Advanced Audio Systems Communications Research Centre 3701 Carling Ave., P.O.
