Cantab Research was founded in 2006 and exists to supply automatic 
speech recognition products to a wide variety of customers.   It has 
supplied SpinVox (now Nuance) to create a voicemail to text system that 
handles over a million calls a day.  It currently supplies speech 
recognition to a medical transcription company and to several other 
companies with high potential novel applications.

We are expanding and seeks a graduate/post-graduate with the following 

* Good degree in a numerate discipline (ideally MSc/MPhil/PhD)
* Excellent analytical ability, ability to conduct research experiments 
as well as develop code
* Practical experience of machine learning on large datasets
* Ability to quickly become competent with complex software
* C/C++, perl/python, matlab/octave, Linux

information mining an advantage
* Keen to learn automatic speech recognition operation and applications

This role offers an interesting combination of the application of 
research, experimentation, and product development. The post involves 
extending Cantab's existing speech recognition software and applying it 
to new tasks. You will be joining a small but rapidly expanding team and 
enjoy the challenges and rewards of a startup culture.
