ABOUT GHENT UNIVERSITY
Ghent University (BE) is a world of its own. Employing more than 8,000 people, it is actively involved in education and research, management and administration, as well as technical and social service provision on a daily basis.
It is one of the largest, most exciting employers in the area and offers great career opportunities. With its 11 faculties and more than 80 departments offering state-of-the-art study programmes grounded in research in a wide range of academic fields, Ghent University is a logical choice for its staff and students.
The Hearing Technology lab of Prof. Verhulst at WAVES (Dept. of Information Technology) offers an interdisciplinary research environment, support with future career steps, and has access to world-class research facilities, including GPU computation clusters, psychoacoustics and auditory physiology setups (waves.
intec.ugent.be / hearing-technology, github / hearing-technology, HearingTechLab). The lab routinely collaborates with other research groups within the Department, as well as with the UZGent hospital through the Ghent Auditory Science Platform (gasp.
ugent.be). Ghent is a lively city in the heart of Europe with a vibrant restaurant / party / music culture.
The Hearing Technology Lab at Ghent University (BE) is presently seeking to fill a vacancy for a Post-Doctoral Researcher related to the FWO project Machine-Hearing 2.
0 : Biophysically-inspired auditory signal processing for machine-hearing applications . The project takes a hybrid, computational neuroscience & machine-learning approach to incorporate the remarkable properties of our human hearing capabilities into the next generation of automatic applications for assisted hearing, speech recognition & sound localization.
You will be part of an international team of researchers (engineers, audiologists) to develop new technologies on the interface between computational neuroscience and machine-learning for audio signal processing.
Furthermore, it is expected that you test the performance of these new machine-hearing system against state-of-the-art systems in scientific challenges as well as in sound perception experiments with study participants.
Lastly, it is expected that you contribute to open-science by publishing code repositories. At least 70% of your assignment will be spent on academic research.
