Description:

Contact: Dr Lise Crevier-Buchman , LPPContact email: lise.crevierlimsi.frApplication reference: EFL-PPC3

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

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

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

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

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