One PhD and one postdoctoral positions are available under the supervision of Timothée Proix in the Auditory Language Group led by Prof. Anne-Lise Giraud at the University of Geneva. The project aims at developing a large-scale model of speech production using intracranial EEG data, and lies at the interface between data analysis, dynamical systems modeling, and machine learning.

Job Description

Postdoctoral position. 

The candidate will contribute to acquisition and analysis of intracranial EEG data and speech recordings.

PhD position. 

The candidate will develop theoretical tools using dynamical systems theory to model neural activity during speech production.
