We are looking for a full-time researcher willing to work with us in the
development of innovative speech and language solutions based on the latest
deep learning technologies and frameworks, capable of satisfying the needs
of an industry demanding speech and natural language technologies and
interfaces for an increasingly varied set of domains and use cases. The
researcher will be developing his/her work at Vicomtech
<http://www.vicomtech.org/en> (San Sebastian, SPAIN).

The goal is to research on neural techniques and architectures which enable
the adoption of speech and language technologies in challenging application
scenarios involving noisy/spontaneous speech and language, the availability
of limited in-domain training data, real-time on-premise processing
requirements, incremental learning and minority languages. These research
lines are supported by ongoing and future Speech and Language projects in
the department
which also counts with the necessary Deep Learning training and deployment
infrastructure. At the practical level, the researcher will participate in
tasks related to collaborative and industrial R&D projects, working in a
team of experts in speech and natural language technologies.
