PhD Scholarships in Acoustic Signal Processing for Next-generation Human-machine Interface, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

We are inviting highly qualified candidates to apply for fully-funded Ph.D. scholarships in the fields of Acoustic Signal Processing for next-generation human-machine interface. A monthly stipend is included in this package. As a member of the STATINA team, you will conduct state-of-the art research leading to your Ph.D. degree. On top of your Ph.D. degree course work, you will be exposed to a wide variety of research topics particularly in the area of acoustic signal processing.

You will be largely responsible for developing novel adaptive and non-adaptive algorithms for acoustic/speech enhancement as well as for the audio beam engine in STATINA. Your contribution into these research topics will enhance STATINA’s capability so as to satisfy its overall objective of being the next-generation human-machine interface.

Other research activities include participating in international conferences, research collaboration with overseas collaborators (Georgia Tech., Northern Illinois University) and local industries (SingHealth, MINDEF) and generating top-tier publications and research progress reports as required by the National Research Foundation in Singapore.
