The ESAT/PSI speech group has a vacancy for a junior research working
towards a PhD degree in the framework of the TELEX project 
(TELEX:  combining acoustic TEmplates with LEXical modeling).
The TELEX project aims at improving our hybrid  and template based speech
recognition system.  
The major research topics are intrinsic improvements in the template based
system by
better long span modeling and better distance metrics.  We will also aim at
introducing pronunciation variation modeling into the template based
framework.

This research will be performed in close collaboration with the Computer
Science Department (CW/Nines) of the K.U.Leuven and the university of Gent. 
There will also be intense collaboration with the Marie Curie network Sound
to Sense. 

More information on the project may be found at our website
http://www.esat.kuleuven.be/psi/spraak/projects/?proj=TELEX

Candidates preferably have: 
- an engineering or science degree
- programming skills in C/C++ 
- a strong mathematical and statistical background

The position is open right now (March 2007), though applications from
students graduating in spring 2007 
are encouraged as well.

Interested applicants should send their CV to Prof. Dirk Van
Compernolle.(compi at esat.kuleuven.be)
