6-6 (2015-03-13) Postdocs in Robust Speaker Verification, Aalborg University, Denmark

Postdocs in Robust Speaker Verification, Aalborg University, Denmark

At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of Electronic Systems, The section for Signal and Information Processing, two postdoc positions in Robust Speaker Verification are open for appointment from May 1, 2015, or as soon as possible thereafter. The positions are available for a period of 2 years. The Department of Electronic Systems is one of the largest departments at Aalborg University with a total of more than 300 employees. The department is internationally recognized in particular for its contributions within Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The department focuses on maintaining a close interplay with the university's surroundings - locally, nationally and internationally ? as well as producing unique basic research and educating talented and creative engineers. The department collaborates with leading ICT researchers all over the world.

The two postdocs will work on a Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission. This project aims at developing innovative speaker verification methods for access control. This relies on developing the core technologies for both text-independent and text-dependent speaker verification and on developing methods robust to varying acoustic environments and threats from spoofing. The results will be used to build a robust speaker verification platform for data-sensitive and mission-critical applications. The applications are from various business sectors and presented by the industrial partners in the project consortium.
The postdocs will cooperate closely with a number of leading academic and industrial partners from the European countries. The successful applicants must have a PhD degree in speaker recognition, noise-robust speech processing, statistical signal processing or machine learning and preferably have experience with developing speaker recognition algorithms or robust speech systems.

You may obtain further information from Associate Professor Zheng-Hua Tan, Department of Electronic Systems, phone: +45 9940 8686, email:, concerning the scientific aspects of the position.

Application deadline: April 15, 2015.
