        Subject: PhD vacancy University of Antwerp: neural networks and speech acquisition


The University of Antwerp has an open PhD vacancy in the field of neural
networks ("deep" representation learning) and their application to speech
acquisition in children with a cochlear implant.

This project is embedded in the CLiPS research group in Antwerp, which
focuses on building quantitative models of natural language. Using
data-driven methods, including Statistics and Machine Learning, members of
our team study various aspects of language acquisition and production.
CLiPS has a unique track record in the study of language acquisition in
children with cochlear implants.

In this project we aim at using models of deep learning that are able to
discriminate the speech of children with normal hearing from the speech of
deaf children with a cochlear implant. Adult speakers can make such
discriminations, but the characteristics underlying this identifiability
remain elusive. This project aims to leverage advances in deep
representation learning (neural networks) for modelling raw audio signals
to advance our understanding of this phenomenon.

More information can be found here:
https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/jobs/vacancies/ap/2017bapdocproex204/

The vacancy's closing date 15 August 2017 and should be submitted online.
This submission should include a copy of your CV and a cover letter and, if
available, a research paper / MA thesis and a link to the candidate’s
portfolio page, with code samples, on a repository such a GitHub. Feel free
to reach out to us for more details.
