platform, running world-class multi-channel speech recognition and
synthesis algorithms.

We have several full-time permanent vacancies for Linguists and/or

multi-disciplinary team which has already released several products
and is expanding into new areas of Speech Technology. Aculab offers a

commitment to Speech Technology R&D. Both teamwork and individual

1 - Software Engineer

The ideal candidate will be fluent in C and C++ programming, familiar
with Windows and UNIX platforms, and will have several years' coding
experience in an industrial setting.
Previous experience in Speech Technology would be advantageous,
particularly in the areas of signal processing, multi-lingual systems,
and rule-based NLP. Knowledge of linguistics, phonetics and/or a
foreign language would also be of benefit. A good command of English
is essential.

2 - Linguists

The ideal candidates will have a background in linguistics with an
emphasis on empirical or computational approaches, and some experience
of Speech Technology or Language Engineering applications. Native
proficiency in and a good knowledge of the linguistics or phonetics of
English, Italian or Brazilian Portuguese is essential, as is a good
command of English. Computer skills, industrial experience, and an
ability to turn theory into practice would be definite advantages.
