Researcher position (W/M) - SKAT-VG project

Researcher position (W/M) at Ircam for Large-Scale Audio Indexing
Fixed-term contract of 18 months from November 1st, 2014

Introduction to IRCAM

IRCAM is a non-profit organization that is associated to the Centre Pompidou (Centre national d’art et de culture Georges Pompidou). Its missions comprise research, production, and education related to contemporary music and its relation to science and technology. Within the R&D department specialized teams are conducting research and development in the areas of acoustics, sound signal processing, interaction, computer music and musicology. IRCAM is located in the centre of Paris near the Centre Pompidou, at 1, Place Igor Stravinsky 75004 Paris.

Introduction to SKAT-VG project

The goal of the European SKAT-VG project is to allow the control of synthesizers trough the use of vocal or gesture imitations. In this project, IRCAM is in charge of the automatic recognition of vocal imitations into categories and of the mapping between vocal imitations and synthesizer control parameters.

Position description

For this project IRCAM is looking for a researcher for the development of the technologies of automatic recognition of vocal imitations into categories (directly from the audio content or using an intermediate stage of transcription into vocal units) and the mapping between vocal imitations and synthesizer control parameters.
The hired Researcher will also collaborate with the development team and participate in the project activities (evaluation of technologies, meetings, specifications, reports).

Required Experiences and Skills

  • High Skill in audio signal processing (spectral analysis, audio-feature extraction, parameter estimation) (the candidate should preferably hold a PHD in this field) ;
  • High skill in machine learning (the candidate should preferably hold a PHD in this field) ;
  • High-skill in Matlab programming, skills in C/C++ programming ;
  • Good knowledge of Linux, Windows, MacOS environments ;
  • High productivity, capacity for methodical and autonomous work, creativity, good communication skills, rigor, and excellent programming style.

Salary

According to background and experience

Applications

Please send an application letter with the reference 201406SKATRES together with your resume and any suitable information addressing the above issues preferably by email to: peeters@ircam.fr with cc to vinet@ircam.fr, roebel@ircam.fr.

IRCAM is located in the centre of Paris near the Centre Pompidou, at 1, Place Igor Stravinsky 75004 Paris.

Introduction to BeeMusic project

The BeeMusic project aims at providing the description of music for large-scale collections (several millions of music titles). In this project IRCAM is in charge of the development of music content description technologies (automatic recognition of genre or mood, audio fingerprint …) for large-scale music collections.

Position Description 201406BMRESA

For this project IRCAM is looking for a researcher for the development of the technologies of automatic genre and mood recognition.
The hired Researcher will be in charge of the research and the development of scalable technologies for supervised learning (i.e. scaling GMM, PCA or SVM algorithms) to be applicable to millions of annotated data.
He/she will then be in charge of the application of the developed technologies for the training of large-scale music genre and music mood models and their application to large-scale music catalogues.

Required Experiences and Skills

  • High skill in audio indexing and data mining (the candidate must hold a PHD in one of these fields) ;
  • Previous experience into scalable machine-learning models ;
  • High-skill in Matlab programming, skills in C/C++ programming ;
  • Skill in audio signal processing (spectral analysis, audio-feature extraction, parameter estimation) ;
  • Good knowledge of Linux, Windows, MacOS environments ;
  • High productivity, capacity for methodical and autonomous work, creativity, good communication skills, rigor, and excellent programming style.

The hired researcher will also collaborate with the development team and participate in the project activities (evaluation of technologies, meetings, specifications, reports).

Position Description 201406BMRESB

For this project IRCAM is looking for a researcher for the development of the technologies of audio fingerprint.
The hired Researcher will be in charge of the research and the development of audio fingerprint technologies that are robust to audio degradations (sound capture through mobile-phones in noisy environment) and fingerprint search algorithms in large-scale database (millions of music titles).

Required Experiences and Skills

  • High skill in audio signal processing and audio fingerprint design (the candidate must hold a PHD in one of these fields) ;
  • High skill in indexing technologies and distributed computing (hash-table, Hadoop, SOLR) ;
  • High-skill in Matlab programming, skills in Python and Java programming ;
  • Good knowledge of Linux, Windows, MacOS environments ;
  • High productivity, capacity for methodical and autonomous work, creativity, good communication skills, rigor, and excellent programming style.
