Dated: 03-11-2020
  1. Name of the Temporary positions: Junior Research Fellow (JRF) leads to PhD
  2. Number of positions: 01 (One)
  3. Name of the Research Project:"Masking of interfering sounds in a crowded environment for hearing aid applications "
  4. Name of the Sponsoring Agency: Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), GOI, Reference No.EEQ/2018/001338
  5. Duration of the Project: 15 months. The initial appointment is for one year, which is extendable up-to completion of the project or end of the project duration, whichever is earlier. The extension of engagement will be solely based on the performance of the candidate. During this extension, the candidate may be allowed to register for PhD under this work based on the eligibility as per the institute norms.
  6. Job Description: This work involves development of algorithm for increasing of speech intelligibility for hearing-impaired listeners in the presence of competing sounds. Identification of various features those distinguish interfering sounds from the target speech. Development of deep neural network (DNN) based algorithm to address this problem. A deep neural network is trained to estimate the mask for a target talker in the presence of competing sounds based on auditory processing model.
