Dear all,

We are currently looking for a PhD candidate in robust speech 
recognition. We are offering a 50% funded position.

For the dissertation, the candidate will perform research in the field 
of *robust speech recognition* at the speech group of *Fraunhofer IAIS* 
(http://www.iais.fraunhofer.de) in Sankt Augustin, Germany.
He should start by defining suitable scenarios for which speech 
recognition should be improved based on relevant application examples. 
These examples come from our industry 
(http://www.iais.fraunhofer.de/index.php?id=4706&L=1) and research 
projects (http://mmprec.iais.fraunhofer.de/projects).
Scenarios could for example be improved pattern recognition for 
*non-voiced phenomena* which cannot be modelled suitably with current 
methods or recognition of *speech over music background* which are a 
special challenge in noisy environments. A versatile solution for such 
problems may also lead to significant progress in other areas of pattern 

The position is not tied to a specific research/commercial project.?

Please contact me for more information,
