Dear Music DSP people, 
Please forward to anyone who may be interested. I will be at ICASSP 
in Calgary next week in case anyone would like more details (including 
chairing Session AASP-L6, Thursday, April 19, 13:30-15:30 in Macleod B). 
Best wishes, Mark Plumbley


Research Fellow in Machine Listening

University of Surrey, UK
Salary: GBP 30,688 to GBP 38,833 per annum  
Closing Date: 1 May 2018 (23:00 BST)

Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in Machine Listening to
work full-time on an EPSRC-funded project "Making Sense of Sounds", to
start as soon as possible, for 9.75 months until 13 March 2019. This
project is investigating how to make sense from sound data, focussing on
how to allow people to search, browse and interact with sounds. The
candidate will be responsible for investigating and developing machine
learning methods for analysis of everyday sounds, leading to new
representations to support search, retrieval and interaction with
The successful applicant is expected to have a PhD or equivalent in
electronic engineering, computer science or a related subject, and is
expected to have significant research experience in audio signal
processing and machine learning. Research experience in one or more of
the following is desirable: deep learning; blind source separation,
blind de-reverberation, sparse and/or non-negative representations,
audio feature extraction.
The project is being led by Prof Mark Plumbley in the Centre for Vision
Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) at the University of Surrey, in
collaboration with the Digital World Research Centre (DWRC) at Surrey,
and the University of Salford. The postholder will be based in CVSSP and
work under the direction of Prof Plumbley and Co-Investigators Dr Wenwu
Wang and Dr Philip Jackson. For more about the project see:
CVSSP is an International Centre of Excellence for research in
Audio-Visual Machine Perception, with 125 researchers, a grant portfolio
of £20M. The Centre has state-of-the-art acoustic capture and analysis
facilities enabling research into audio source separation, music
transcription and spatial audio. Audio-visual compute includes 700 cores
and a 50GPU machine learning cluster with 500TB of online storage.
Informal enquires are welcome, to: Prof Mark Plumbley
