The Wider Research Project

This Research Fellow is required to contribute to a new overall project led by Prof. Naomi Harte focused on the development of a unified multimodal framework for modelling and analysing real-world speech-based interaction. This Research Fellow will develop neural architectures for multimodal speech applications.  The Research Fellow will rethink the development of sophisticated deep learning architectures that can fully exploit the relevant modalities of speech in an application. They will develop approaches that are agile in deployment and that can change how modalities combine in real-time. Applications will be in audio-visual speech recognition and conversational analysis.

This work will be interdisciplinary in nature, requiring consideration of theories around conversation not only from a speech science and technology perspective, but also incorporating knowledge from established theories in the fields of psycholinguistics and cognitive science. Other elements of the project will focus on how to model multimodality in deep learning architectures. The overall team in this major project will consist of two Research Fellows (this position is one of those two), 4 PhD students, and one Research Assistant.  The position is fully in-person and requires the person to be based in Dublin, Ireland.


Candidates appointed to this role must have completed a PhD in Electrical or Electronic Engineering, or a closely related field that makes them qualified to conduct this research in multimodal interaction.


Candidates who do not address the application requirements above will not be considered for interview.
