This research program is aimed at developing modern machine learning methods that lead to improved performance of audio processing algorithms (e.g., for hearing aids). In particular, our approach is to study computational models of learning and adaptation in brains and apply these ideas to the design of personalization of audio processing applications. Key areas of interest include Bayesian machine learning, probabilistic graphical models (factor graphs), computational neurosciences and signal processing. We develop our own toolbox (see forneylab.org) for Bayesian inference and learning, so you should have a strong interest and background in professional code development.

Please browse our web page biaslab.org for more information on our research goals.

Benefits

- A challenging job for 4 years in a dynamic and ambitious university and a stimulating research environment;

- Support with your professional and personal development;

- A gross salary per month of € 2325,- (first year) as a PhD up to € 2972,- (final year) in accordance with the Collective Labor Agreement of the Dutch Universities

- Plus 8% holiday allowance + 8.3% end of the year allowance.
