Subject: Irish Phonology/Speech Synthesis - Research/ Dublin, Ireland

1 studentship in Irish phonology; 1 studentship in speech synthesis

Two funded research studentships are currently available within a
collaborative project between the Departments of Lingusitics and
Computer Science in University College Dublin, Ireland. Both
positions are available from October 2000, and each carries an annual
tax-free stipend of IEP 7,500.- together with full fee remission.
Initial funding is for 2 years. Candidates interested in pursuing
either a masters or a Ph.D. in either discipline will be considered.

The first candidate will assist in the formalization of Irish phonology
for use in a non-linear phonological model. A working knowledge of
Irish and some familiarity with basic phonological theory are
required. 

The second candidate will work in the development of a speech
synthesis system based on the output of the phonological model.
Familiarity with speech processing in general and with synthesis in
particular are required. This position does not require a knowledge
of Irish.
