Postdoctoral fellowship in corpus phonetics / data science for speech, Northwestern University

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship (contingent on final approval of funding) for a National Science Foundation grant entitled, Enhancing speech and deep learning research through holistic acoustic analysis. The fellow will be co-supervised by Matt Goldrick (PI) and Ann Bradlow (co-I). This project will test a novel, unsupervised deep learning approach that discovers a representational space for analysis of acoustic variation. To test this highly general approach, we will assess whether it out-performs a baseline, based on current methods for analyzing individual variation in bilingual speech. Full details here >
