Reminder/second announcement

Announcing 14 PhD positions on a new Marie Curie European Training Network,
ENRICH (Enriched Communication Across the Lifespan)

Speech is a hugely efficient means of communication: a reduced capacity in
listening or speaking creates a significant barrier to social inclusion at all
points through the lifespan, in education, work and at home. Hearing aids and
speech synthesis can help address this reduced capacity but their use imposes
greater listener effort. The fundamental objective of ENRICH is to modify or
augment speech with additional information to make it easier to process.
Enrichment aims to reduce the listening burden by minimising cognitive load,
while maintaining or improving intelligibility. ENRICH will investigate the
relationship between cognitive effort and different forms of natural and
synthetic speech. 

ENRICH is funded for 4 years from October 2016. We are now looking to recruit
14 generously-funded early stage researchers to undertake projects leading to
a PhD within the network. Openings exist for candidates with a background in
engineering, psychology, speech science or linguistics.

ENRICH partners are: University of Edinburgh, Radboud University, Tobii
Technology, University College London, University of Crete, Hoerzentrum
Oldenburg, University Medical Center Groningen and the University of the
Basque Country (coordinator).
