Job Rank: Programmer  
Specialty Areas: Speech Processing

Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Draper Laboratory serves the national
interest as an independent not-for-profit laboratory in applied research,
engineering development, education, and technology transfer. We are looking for
a Speech Processing System Architect.

Descriptions & Responsibilities:
As a key part of a new business area you will develop complete first-of-a-kind
speech processing systems, with responsibility for all elements from free field
transduction through embedded real time processing. You will combine innovative
best-in-class processing engines with environment mitigation techniques and high
quality acquisition to produce high performance solutions for transmitted
(wireline and wireless) and free field speech. You will also develop and exploit
high performance and size / power constrained hardware implementations. Working
from general customer requirements you will break a problem into its components,
address or delegate each as appropriate, and report results and recommendations
to customers and senior management.

The ideal candidate for this position will be well versed in the inner working,
benefits and limitations of contemporary approaches to the common speech
processing challenges. You must be able to extend these approaches to compensate
for well-known errors such as mismodeling, and model drift and be able to
develop computationally and energy efficient architectures and hardware
implementations. Excellent writing and presentation skills essential. Minimum BS
in electrical engineering, or other applicable field, and ten years related
experience. Advanced degree together with recent relevant publications preferred.

To apply, send a resume to hr at draper.com and refer to job #07T277.
Application Deadline: 31-Mar-2007 (Open until filled)
