Full-time postdoctoral fellowship in Speech Recognition (18 months)

Institute of Linguistics and Language Technology, University of Malta

Start date: January 2019

The Institute of Linguistics and Language Technology at the University of Malta is about to embark on a project called MASRI (MAltese Automatic Speech Recognition), the aim of which is to develop a speech recognition system for the Maltese language. The project is funded by the University of Malta Research Awards. The project has a vacancy for a post-doctoral researcher to join the team for 18 months (the position is referred to as a Research Support Officer III under the terms of employment at UM). Details of the post and instructions on how to apply are available from the link below:


The researcher engaged in this project will be responsible for the execution of the main tasks related to MASRI. The challenges in the project include the fact that Maltese is a low-resource language.

Prior experience in speech recognition research is a must, and we have highlighted a number of important themes and skills that we are looking for in the call above. In particular, we are seeking individuals with a proven track record in research and excellent programming skills, with a sound working knowledge of deep learning techniques.

Inquiries can be made to Andrea DeMarco (andrea.demarco at um.edu.mt) or Albert Gatt (albert.gatt at um.edu.mt)
