Machine Listening Group at the Faculty of Information Technology and Communication Sciences is looking for candidates at doctoral and postdoctoral levels. The group is doing research on computational methods for the analysis and processing of soundscapes, using deep learning for sound event classification and detection, sound localization, and audio captioning. The group is actively involved in DCASE Challenge for pushing forward the development of cutting-edge methods for analysis of environmental audio.
The main research topics for the positions to be filled are Sound event detection and classification and Automatic audio captioning. For sound event detection, different tasks to be studied include for example use of weak and noisy labels, feature learning, and transfer learning. For audio captioning, tasks to be studied include use of textual labels for grounding the captioning process, annotation and subjective evaluations with different segments of users.
Requirements (for Doctoral Researcher): The candidate should have an MSc degree in related subjects such as signal processing, machine learning or mathematics, with an excellent academic track record. Candidates should have experience in using Python and be proficient in oral and written English. Successful candidates are expected to pursue a doctoral degree at Tampere University.
