We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our 2.5M Euro European Research Council funded project entitled "EAR: Audio-based Mobile Health Diagnostics" concentrating on the use of audio for mobile health diagnostics. The project aims to design and work with wearable hardware, devise new on-device machine learning paradigms for robust in-the-wild audio analytics targeting clinical applications. We are seeking candidates with background in the area of mobile systems and machine learning (possibly audio related but not necessarily) and on device machine learning.

Requirements: Candidates should have been awarded a PhD (or be very close to submission of one) and a strong publication record in mobile systems, on device machine learning with possible expertise in audio and signal processing. The ideal candidates should also have good programming skills. Good communication, presentation and management skills are also desirable given the size of the project team.
