PhD/PD Positions in Real-time Audio Machine Learning Models and Hardware Acceleration

We have two open positions in the Sensors Group (Website) for an exciting new project on creating audio machine learning models that support real-time operation. The person will develop either algorithms and/or hardware. Each position will be filled either by a PhD student or Postdoc. Postdoctoral positions are for 1 year with possible extension for a 2nd year.


For the first position, the candidate should have strong knowledge of signal processing and deep networks; and is comfortable with hardware and the deep learning tools. The postdoctoral candidate should have performed their thesis work on a deep learning topic preferably on audio.
For the second position, the postdoc or phd candidate should have a strong background in hardware accelerator design, either ASIC or on FPGA and completed a thesis project on this topic.
Salary is according to the guidelines of the Swiss National Science Foundation. Postdoctoral applicants should have a doctoral degree in an engineering /computer science-related discipline.


Interested applicants should send a statement of interest, CV, transcripts and 2 reference letters to shih (at) and tobi (at) with subject line containing the words “Application for Audio ML position”. Deadline for applications is Sep 15, 2021, or until the position is filled.
