Idiap has a new opening for a post-doctoral position on joint modeling of speech and physiological signals

The Idiap Research Institute together with the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) seeks a qualified candidate for postdoctoral position on joint modeling of speech and physiological signals. The research and development will be take place in the context of CSEM-Idiap collaboration project AUDIO: Reinforced Audio Processing via Physiological Signals. Briefly, this project combines Idiap's expertise on speech processing and CSEM's expertise on physiological signal acquisition to develop a platform that acquires speech signal synchronously with physiological signals and body sounds, and models them jointly for human conversation analysis.

The successful candidate will be part of the Speech and Audio Processing group at Idiap. She or he will work under the supervision of Dr. Mathew Magimai Doss ( and will also engage with the collaborators from CSEM.

The ideal candidate should hold a PhD degree in electrical engineering, computer science or related fields. She or he should have a strong background in signal processing, applied mathematics, optimization and linear algebra. The applicant should also have strong programming skills and be familiar with Python/Perl, C/C++, shell scripting and with the Linux environment. A solid experience in speech processing or physiological signal processing or both is an asset.

The position is offered for one year, with a possibility of extension based on the performance of the candidate and availability of funds. The start date is May 2018. The annual gross salary is CHF 80,000.
