6-15 (2012-10-27) Postdoc position in physiological data acquisition and processing in speech production LABEX project, Universit√© Paris 3
We offer a one year postdoc position in physiological data acquisition and processing in speech production within the 10-year LABEX project 'Empirical foundations of linguistics' that started in 2011. The position is based in Paris, at the Laboratoire de phonetique et Phonologie (UMR 7018) from the Université de Paris 3. This postdoctoral position is linked to the strand « Phonetic and phonological complexity - boosting empirical approaches » of the LABEX project, and will be supervised by Lise CREVIER-BUCHMAN.
The successful candidate will contribute to the physiological and acoustic data collection, and will elaborate signal processing methods and tools to analyse/assess voice and speech in normal and pathological populations. Her responsibilities will include selecting and recording acoustic and articulatory data (ultrasound, EGG, video with high speed imaging and aerodynamics), carrying out acoustic and articulatory analyses.
She/he will undertake experiments of two types. One will consist in defining parameters for acoustical and physiological data collection and designing analysis methods. The second will consist in an attempt of modelling phonatory and articulatory behaviours for i) normal standard and non standard productions such as whispered voice or singing styles, ii) and pathological productions. The aim is to better understand deviant speech production mechanisms and compensation capabilities.
The candidate will have a PhD in Engineering or signal processing (audio and video) with, if possible, some knowledge of experimental phonetics and speech sciences.
More information on the position can be found at http://www.labex-efl.org/?q=en/hiring/2012 or by contacting Lise CREVIER-BUCHMAN(firstname.lastname@example.org)
Application deadline is April 10th 2012.
Candidate should send a CV with list of publications, a site web where publications can be found and the names of two referents to Martine Adda-Decker (email@example.com)
