Postdoctoral Researcher "Machine learning-based speech enhancement algorithms"

University of Oldenburg - Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all
Country of Position: 
Contact Name: 
Prof. Dr. Simon Doclo
Subject Area: 
Speech and Language Processing
Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing
Start Date: 
June 09, 2019
Expiration Date: 
July 21, 2019
Position Description: 

The cluster of excellence Hearing4all at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg is seeking to fill the position of a

Postdoctoral Researcher

in the Signal Processing Division (, Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The position is available from November 1st, 2019 until October 31th, 2022. Salary will be according to TV-L E13 (100%). The position is suitable for part-time work.

In the framework of the cluster of excellence Hearing4all ( the successful candidate is expected to contribute to the research goals of Research Thread IV “Hearing devices of the future” and Research Thread II “IT-based diagnostics and rehabilitation” by developing and evaluating machine learning-based speech enhancement algorithms for hearing devices. More in particular, in the envisaged project the main objective is to enhance the speech quality and intelligibility for the hearing device user by using machine learning-based algorithms for noise reduction, dereverberation and computational acoustic scene analysis.

Candidates are required to have a doctoral degree after obtaining their academic university degree (Master or equivalent) in hearing technology and audiology, electrical engineering, physics or a related discipline, and have shown their ability to perform excellent scientific work, demonstrated by the outstanding quality of their doctoral thesis and an excellent publication record. We are seeking candidates with extensive knowledge in at least two of the following research fields: speech/audio signal processing, machine learning, acoustics and auditory perception. In particular, for the envisaged project experience with speech enhancement algorithms, deep learning and auditory models is beneficial. Excellent programming (e.g., Matlab, python) skills and English language skills are mandatory.

The Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of women in science. Therefore, equally qualified female candidates will be given preference. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered in case of equal qualification.

Please send your application (ref. SP192), including a letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, list of publications and a copy of the university diplomas and grades, to Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Fakultät VI, Abt. Signalverarbeitung, Prof. Dr. Simon Doclo, 26111 Oldenburg, Germany, or electronically to Application by email is preferred. The application deadline is 10.07.2019.
