PhD Fellowship on ASR

A PhD fellowship is available for conducting research studies in the field of Automatic Speech Recognition at the Human Language Technology Research Unit (http://hlt.fbk.eu/en/openpositions/phd-ict) of Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Trento, Italy. Research work will be carried out at FBK as part of the PhD Program of the International Doctorate School in Information and Communication Technologies (http://www.ict.unitn.it) of the University of Trento, Italy. Interested candidates need to specify in the application form that they intend apply for the project-specific grant offered by FBK for the Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) project. FBK has a long tradition in developing automatic transcription systems for several languages (information about the research group and ongoing activities can be found at http://hlt.fbk.eu), the aim of the project will be advancing beyond the state-of-the-art the existing FBK automatic transcription technology. Possible research topics include but are not limited to: improving acoustic modeling for large vocabulary ASR (e.g. discriminative training algorithms, speaker adaptive acoustic modeling, methods for fast and efficient adaptation to changing domains, data selection methods for AM training, bootstrap methods for under resourced languages) and improving language modeling for large vocabulary ASR (data selection for LM training, domain adaptation). Details about requirements of candidates can be found at http://hlt.fbk.eu/en/openpositions/phd-ict.
