2 Ph.D. studentships at KCL/Speech signal processing

(or as soon as possible thereafter)

Two fully funded three-year Ph.D. studentships are available on an EPSRC
research grant for study under the supervision of Dr Zoran Cvetkovic
(Electronic Engineering) and Prof Peter Sollich (Mathematics) at King’s
College London. The aim of the research project is to investigate whether
automatic speech recognition can be made more robust
against noise by working directly in the high-dimensional space of
acoustic waveforms rather than with
more standard low-dimensional feature vectors.

Further details on the project and the relevant background can be
found in the project description, which is available here in either
PDF or
postscript format.

Applications are now invited from suitably qualified candidates with an
excellent first degree in electrical engineering, mathematics, statistics,
computer science, or theoretical physics. The project will involve research
at the interface of signal processing, information theory, and machine learning
(pattern recognition, statistical inference). Experience in one of these
areas, preferably at
Master’s level, will be an advantage. Interested candidates should
contact Dr Cvetkovic or Prof Sollich directly and as soon as possible
(contact details below), preferably by email.

The grant provides payment of full university fees (at the rate for
European Union students), a maintenance grant of around 13,600 pounds
per year, as well as provision for travel to conferences and dedicated
computing equipment. The successful applicants will be based at King’s College‘s Strand Campus. This is
the most central of all the London colleges, situated midway between
the Houses of Parliament and St Paul’s Cathedral and close to Covent
Garden, Soho, and Trafalgar Square.
