W3 Chair in "Digital Phonetics"
INSTITUTE FOR NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING I AT THE
The chair’s research and teaching is supposed to focus on the development
of theoretically founded methods for Speech Processing/Spoken
Language Processing pertinent for the digitization of language

and Visual Analytics. The chair includes leadership of a research group
at the Institute for Natural Language Processing (IMS).
In addition to foundational research in Automatic Speech Recognition
and Phonetics, the research profile of the chair should cover
application-related basic research in several of the following areas:
Development of machine learning methods for speech processing,
with systematic adaptation to application scenarios (in particular
for scenarios with limited availability of data, such as non-native
and dialectical utterances, resource-poor languages, special
Theoretically motivated modeling of prosody (intonation, phrasing,
voice quality, etc.) in its linguistic functions (e. g., information
focus) and paralinguistic functions (e. g., emotions)
Spoken Language Understanding, i. e., capturing the content and

Speech and language processing in multimodal and embedded
Methodologies for the critically reflected exploration of speech
data in large heterogeneous data collections (e. g., social media)
We are looking for an excellent researcher of international standing.
The chair’s responsibilities include teaching in the areas of Phonetics,
