Subject: Studentship at Sheffield (UK)

The Hawley Trust PhD Studentship

Topic: The use of Automatic Speech Recognition by Speech impaired
individuals

The aim of the project is to investigate the use of Automatic Speech
Recognition(ASR) by disabled individuals for text input and to control
electronic equipment; specifically examining the use of ASR with
impaired speech. Commercially available ASRs will be used and ASR
development packages will be available. The success of these systems
with impaired speech will be assessed as well as `best' strategies for
use in the users day-to-day life. Failure or poor performance of
systems to work in some circumstances would lead to analysis of these
failures and, if the successful candidate is appropriately skilled,
investigation of novel technology (software or hardware) to enhance
the performance of the ASRs. Long term changes in the users voice may
also be considered.

The project will include a large element of clinical work. The
successful candidate will be required to work both at the University
and at Barnsley District General Hospital NHS Trust (some funding for
travel expenses will be available). The studentship is for 5,500
(pounds sterling) p.a. for three years and is available immediately.

Candidates should have :

.. I.1/II.1 or a Masters degree in one of the following subjects :
 Speech, Medical Physics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical or
 Electronic Engineering

.. Good interpersonal communication skills, basic computing skills,
 experience/training in speech, image or pattern processing.

Desirable experience etc.:
.. Speech pathology, computer programming, task analysis, mathematics
 (especially statistics)

.. Driving License (and car owner)

The studentship is open to any UK or EU candidates.
