Positions Available

The Speech Research Lab presently has one opening for a Postdoctoral research fellow in Speech Synthesis. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Linguistics, Psychology, or a related field, demonstrated experience in data-based speech synthesis techniques, and an interest in modeling prosody--particularly intonation--in speech synthesis systems.

The primary responsibilities for this position are:

  • Develop a model for intonation that can be trained on and capture the important talker-specific features of an individual's speech while also representing phonologically motivated f0 characteristics.
  • Implement the intonation model for the ModelTalker TTS system.
  • Assist in the creation of unit concatenation voices for the ModelTalker TTS system.

For more information, email Tim Bunnell or call (302) 651-6835.
