Qualification Details

The candidate will contribute to teaching activities in the group, mostly at MSc level and focus on the international MSc program ‘Engineering Acoustics’ that is offered jointly with the Acoustic Technology Section at the Department of Electrical Engineering.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate a solid scientific knowledge and research experience in at least one of the following areas:

  • Multi-sensory (e.g., audio-visual) speech perception and recognition in complex acoustic environments, including, but not limited to, communication and interaction in dynamic scenes; sensor-based measures of listener behaviour; impact of hearing loss and aided hearing; and perception in virtual/augmented reality.
  • Multi-sensory signal processing for hearing technology, including, but not limited to, computational multi-sensory learning, artificial-intelligence-based signal processing, multi-sensory human-computer interfaces; audio-visual speech enhancement; and audio-visual scene analysis.

We expect the successful candidate to participate in both fundamental and advanced-level education of students, in cooperation with the other scientific staff, and to contribute actively to the theoretical and experimental research within the Department.

As formal qualification you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent). If you are applying for the associate professor position you should also have academic qualifications equivalent to those obtained by holding an assistant professorship and documented didactic/pedagogic training.

You will be assessed against the responsibilities and qualifications stated above and the following general criteria:

  • Experience and quality of teaching
  • Research experience
  • Research vision and potential
  • International impact and experience
  • Societal impact
  • Innovativeness, including commercialization and collaboration with industry
  • Leadership, collaboration, and interdisciplinary skills
  • Communication skills

Responsibilities/Job Description

About the Department

Our research is concerned with auditory signal processing and perception, speech communication, audiology, behavioural and objective measures of auditory function, computational auditory neuroscience, environmental acoustics, and hearing-instrument signal processing.The multi-disciplinary research conducted by the Hearing Systems Section is done in collaboration with several European networks, Danish hospitals, and with industry. The goal of the research is to increase our understanding of how the human auditory system functions and to provide insights that are useful for technical applications, such as hearing aids, speech recognition systems, hearing diagnostics, cochlear implants and virtual reality applications. Specifically, the research field of the position will be focused on exploring people’s speech communication challenges in adverse acoustic conditions with multiple interfering sources, as well novel strategies of intervention for people with hearing loss. The research will be connected to the activities at the Centre for Applied Hearing Research (CAHR), thereby giving unique opportunities for collaboration with the hearing-aid industry.The assistant professor position is part of DTU’s Tenure Track program. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility. We develop talent by offering a career mentor, state-of-the-art research infrastructure, and postgraduate teacher training. DTU’s Tenure Track is an appointment of at most six years, during which you will receive career support in the form of professional and personal guidance. At the end of the tenure track appointment you will be evaluated by an  external assessment committee, who will assess your appointment to a permanent Associate Professorship. Read more about the DTU Tenure Track program at DTU at this homepage.
