6-15 (2022-09-12) Postdocs and Software engineering positions, Telecom Paris, France
Telecom Paris' ADASP research group ( is welcoming
applications for
multiple postdoc and audio software engineering positions in speech processing, machine
MIR and audio/music DSP to start in September 2022 onwards.

The work will be performed as part of a collaborative project whose purpose is to
hearable technologies (especially TWS/earbuds) by offering extremely efficient real-time
listening, speech processing and MIR solutions which can run on very low consumption

Telecom Paris [2] is located on the Plateau de Saclay (Paris outskirts). Accepted
candidates will
join the ADASP group [4], a multidisciplinary team working at the intersection of machine
sound, music and signal processing.

-- Context
Telecom Paris [2] is a French leading engineering school and scientific research
founded in July 1878. It is a founding member of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris [1],
a world-class scientific and technological institution.

The Information Processing and Communication Laboratory (LTCI) [3] is Telecom Paris’
research laboratory. Since January 2017, it has continued the work previously carried out
by the
CNRS joint research unit of the same name. The LTCI was created in 1982 and is known for
extensive coverage of topics in the field of information and communication technologies.
The LTCI’s
core subject areas are computer science, networks, data science, signal and image
processing and
digital communications. The laboratory is also active in issues related to systems
engineering and
applied mathematics.

The open position will be hosted by Telecom Paris’ Audio Data Analysis and Signal
Processing (ADASP)
group [4], a subgroup of the statistics, signal processing and machine learning (S²A)
team, within
the Images, Data & Signals (IDS) department.
