Dear roboticists,
The Mirror Neurons and Interaction Lab (http://www.iit.it/it/rbcs-labs/mni.html) at the Robotics Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department of the Italian Institute of Technology is seeking highly motivated applicants for a PhD position on Speech Production for Automatic Speech Recognition. Applicants with a background in machine learning and spoken language processing are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to carry out original research on novel statistical speech recognition systems that use speech production knowledge, to create new corpora of articulatory data recorded with some of the lab equipment (e.g., Electro Magnetic Articulograph, Ultrasound Scanner), and to be involved on neurophysiological studies on the motor contribution to speech perception.

Applicants can apply online here: http://www.studenti.unige.it/postlaurea/dottorati/XXIX/bandoGeneraleEN 
Specific information for the PhD position on Speech Recognition is available at http://www.iit.it/phdschool , "Curriculum Cognitive Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation technologies", Theme No. 2.  Curriculum and Theme must be specified in the application form.
