The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Draper Laboratory serves the national
interest as an independent not-for-profit laboratory in applied research,
engineering development, education, and technology transfer. We are looking for
a Speech Processing System Architect.

Descriptions & Responsibilities:
As a key part of a new business area you will develop complete first-of-a-kind
speech processing systems, with responsibility for all elements from free field
transduction through embedded real time processing. You will combine innovative
best-in-class processing engines with environment mitigation techniques and high
quality acquisition to produce high performance solutions for transmitted
(wireline and wireless) and free field speech. You will also develop and exploit
high performance and size / power constrained hardware implementations. Working
from general customer requirements you will break a problem into its components,
address or delegate each as appropriate, and report results and recommendations

The ideal candidate for this position will be well versed in the inner working,
benefits and limitations of contemporary approaches to the common speech
processing challenges. You must be able to extend these approaches to compensate
for well-known errors such as mismodeling, and model drift and be able to
develop computationally and energy efficient architectures and hardware
implementations. Excellent writing and presentation skills essential. Minimum BS
