Subject: Neural Network Intern For Speech Recognition


Motorola's Chicago Corporate Research Laboratories is currently seeking
a Ph.D. student to join the Speech Synthesis and Machine Learning Group
as an intern in its Speech Processing Systems Research Laboratory in
Schaumburg, Illinois, for spring 1997. The internship will last at
least three months.

The Speech Synthesis and Machine Learning Group has developed innovative
neural network and signal processing technologies for speech synthesis
and speech recognition applications. The intern will work on a component
of an HMM/neural network hybrid speech recognizer. The duties of the
position include applied research, software development, and conducting
experiments with speech data sets. Innovation in research, application
of technology and a high level of motivation is the standard for all
members of the team.

The individual should be in an advanced stage of a Ph.D. program in
EE, CS or a related discipline. The ability to work within a group to
quickly implement and evaluate algorithms in a rapid research/development
cycle is essential. Strong programming skills in the "C" language and
solid knowledge of neural networks are required. Background in any of
speech processing, statistical techniques, decision trees, and genetic
algorithms is highly desirable.

Please send text-format resume and cover letter to Orhan Karaali, Motorola is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
employer. We welcome and encourage diversity in our workforce.
