The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

This post-doc position is offered by the 10-year project 'Empirical foundations
of linguistics' that started in 2011 and is linked to the strand « Phonetic and
phonological complexity - boosting empirical approaches ».

The successful candidate will contribute to the physiological and acoustic
data collection, and will elaborate signal processing methods and tools to
analyse/assess voice and speech in normal and pathological populations.
His/her responsibilities will include selecting and recording acoustic and
articulatory data (ultrasound, EGG, video with high speed imaging and
aerodynamics), carrying out acoustic and articulatory analyses.

Voice and speech assessment is a growing field which requires
multiparametric evaluations. Clinical phonetics and medical sciences share
the same instrumentations to explore vocal function at the physiological,
acoustical and behavioural level. Physiological and articulatory data are still
scarce however they convey information complementary to acoustic cues.
This research aims at studying the complexity of speech production
mechanisms as a whole, with the coordination of respiratory, phonatory and
articulatory behaviour in normal phonation and detecting deviant or
compensatory gestures due to pathology.

The successful candidate will undertake experiments of two types. One will
consist in defining parameters for acoustical and physiological data collection
and designing analysis methods. The second will consist in an attempt of
modelling phonatory and articulatory behaviours for i) normal standard and
non-standard productions such as whispered voice or singing styles, ii) and
pathological productions. The aim is to better understand deviant speech
production mechanisms and compensation capabilities.

The candidate will have a PhD in Engineering or signal processing (audio and
video) with, if possible, some knowledge of experimental phonetics and
speech sciences. Experience in the acoustic analysis of speech and in the
testing of human participants is essential, and experience in articulatory
investigation will be an advantage.
