OFFER DESCRIPTION

Working area: "Digital Phonetics - Speech Science".

Electrical Engineering contributed groundbreaking innovations in analog and digital communication of spoken and written language starting from the 19th century and resulting in a strong integration of electronic and information engineering with phonetics and speech science by the end of the 20th century. Currently, these developments are culminating in the digital transformation of the 21st century which seizes all areas of society, including the humanities, science, and engineering. "Digital Phonetics" uses digital technology to widen the scope of (natural science oriented) research into human speech, based on comprehensive data sets from lifelike scenarios, and delivers knowledge for the design of conversational systems.

The position is initially restricted to six years as a University Assistant with Doctorate.

Upon agreement on a qualification agreement, the candidate will be appointed as assistant professor. As soon as the qualification agreement has been fulfilled, the position will be converted into a tenured position as associate professor.
