Jobs: Speech Processing: Post Doc, University of Toronto, Canada

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

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.

A postdoctoral position is available in the University of Toronto project
on automatic speech recognition in dysarthria. The research will involve
detailed analysis of movement data obtained from 3D kinematic recordings of
facial landmarks during the production of speech. The findings will be used
to inform a physically plausible computational model that integrates with a
newly created speech recognition system customized to disordered speech as
found in patients with dysarthria. The position is initially for 12
months, with possible continuation contingent upon funding.

The project is a cooperation between UofT's Departments of Computer Science
and of Speech-Language Pathology and Bloorview Kids Rehab. The appointment
will be in the Department of Computer Science.

QUALIFICATIONS: A recent (2005 or later) PhD and high-level expertise and
experience in one or more relevant topic areas, such as automatic speech
recognition, signal processing, speech science, and programming.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Apply with letter of application, full CV, research
statement, and names and contact details for three references.
Consideration of applications will begin on 15 September 2009 and continue
until the position is filled.

STARTING DATE: Available immediately.

The University of Toronto is the largest and most prestigious
research-intensive university in Canada, with more than 11,000 faculty and
staff, and 70,000 students enrolled across three campuses. Inclusive of
on-campus research spending, the University has an annual budget of $1.6
billion, and its research productivity ranks among the top ten universities
