audio, speech, and human language processing applications. You will
also design and conduct acoustic testing, both in the lab and in
the field, for speech applications and advanced acoustic/vibration
About the job: we will trust you with the following
--- As an Audio/Speech Signal Processing Engineer you will optimize
speech algorithms for real-time and embedded processor
--- You will test and evaluate speech algorithms (intelligibility,
speaker ID, voice activity, blind source separation) and advanced
concept microphone arrays. Support other APL groups in applying
speech processing applications.
--- You will develop algorithms and advanced machine learning
techniques for audio applications such as speech modeling, 3D audio
rendering, speech recognition, blind source separation, and speaker
--- You will prepare technical reports, test plans, and project
