A funded postgraduate scholarship is currently available within the
Department of Computer Science for a PhD track student. The student will
work within the CHAINS project (CHaracterising INdividual Speakers). This
project involves the search for dynamic indices of speaker identity which
remain invariant despite substantial changes to the speaker's style of
speech. Speech corpora featuring unaltered and altered speech will be
recorded, and text-independent indices of speaker identity sought therein.

The student must be familiar with basic digital signal processing and
capable of independenly developing speech analysis programs. A background
in phonetics is also desirable.

Interested candidates should forward a full currriculum vitae and any
appropriate accompanying material, as well as the names and contact details
of two academic referees to:

Dr Fred Cummins (

The position will pay a competitive tax-free scholarship and fees.
Applications will be accepted immediately and until the 15th of May. No
late applications will be entertained.

University College Dublin is committed to promoting the continued
development of academic, employment and other policies, procedures and
practices which do not discriminate unfairly on the grounds of gender,
marital status, age, disability, race, colour, religious belief, ethnic
origin or sexual orientation.
