Marie Curie Early Stage Researchers in Sparse Methods for Audio Source Separation and Automatic Music Transcription

University of Surrey, UK

Closing Date:  Sunday 25 January 2015

Applications are invited to a number of Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions as part of the new EU-funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) "SpaRTaN: Sparse Representations and Compressed Sensing Training Network".

The SpaRTaN ITN (http://spartan-itn.eu/) will bring together leading academic and industry groups to train a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers in sparse representations and compressed sensing, with applications in areas such as hyperspectral imaging, audio signal processing and video analytics.

Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions allow the researcher to work towards a PhD, for a duration of 36 months. ESRs should be within four years of the diploma granting them access to doctorate studies at the time of recruitment, and must not have spent more than 12 months in the host country in the 3 years prior to starting.

At the University Surrey, we are recruiting for two Marie Curie ESRs: one in Sparse Time-Frequency Methods for Audio Source Separation, and one in Automatic Music Transcription using Structured Sparse Dictionary Learning.

Marie Curie ESRs are paid a competitive salary which is adjusted for their host country. For ESRs at the University of Surrey, the ESR salary including mobility allowance is equivalent to a gross salary of approximately £36,087, or £38,836 for ESRs with a family.
