ISCApad #194

Monday, August 04, 2014 by Chris Wellekens



We invite applications for a one-year Post‐Doctoral position at the Laboratoire Parole et Langage (LPL, Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS, UMR 7309, France), to work on the project PhonIACog  (- The role of the Initial Accent in prosodic structuring in French - From phonology to speech processing- Main coordinator : Corine Astésano, Université de Toulouse 2).

•    Description
The PhonIACog project is funded by the The French National Research Agency (ANR).

The present project aims at describing the characteristics of the French accentual system in order to bring to light the underlying phonological structure of this language. It addresses the status of the bipolar pattern /IA FA/ (initial accent-final accent), considered as the basic metric pattern in French. We propose to apply the same analyses to different corpora, from laboratory speech to semi-controlled speech and dialogic spontaneous interaction. The production studies will allow us to refine the acoustic-phonetic characterization of IA and FA, with potential application to automatic detection of prosodic cues on large, spontaneous corpora.

More information is available at the project website:

•    Job description
The post‐doctoral fellow will be mainly involved in data processing. He/she will participate in the acoustic analyses and will then have to implement the statistical analyses planned in the project.

•    Qualifications
A Ph.D. in linguistics (experimental phonetics/prosody) or in computer science and solid competence/experience in statistics and data analysis are required.  Experience in processing and analysis of large speech database is also welcome.

•    Application procedure

Please e-mail documents to: (Roxane Bertrand, Scientific coordinator LPL, Aix-en-Provence, France).
