Imperial College London is a science-based institution with the greatest concentration of high-impact research of any major UK university.  The Faculty of Engineering, consistently rated among the best in the world, is made up of 10 academic departments and is committed to increasing its research activity by focusing on engineering-led multidisciplinary growth areas that target a number of global challenges. All of our academic departments are located on a single campus in South Kensington, giving a concentration of talent that creates a stimulating and vibrant research community. You can find out more about our staff benefits, including generous annual leave entitlements and our excellent professional development opportunities, here: http://www.imperial.ac.uk/job-applicants/staff-benefits/.

This project is part of a recently funded EPSRC fellowship with the project partners Google and Oticon as well as further academic partners in Aachen, Paris and London. It tackles multisensory integration, one of the main issues in real-world speech comprehension. Multisensory speech perception such as through lip reading can indeed help to better understand a talker in background noise. However, the neural mechanisms behind this multisensory integration remain poorly understood

This research project will tackle this challenge through experimental and mathematical techniques. Neuroimaging data acquisition will focus on EEG recordings, which will be analysed using advanced statistical models including deep neural networks. The project will also explore computational models of multisensory integration in cortical networks.

Applicants should have an undergraduate degree/ MSc (or equivalent) in engineering, mathematics, physics or neuroscience with experience in signal processing, machine learning as well as human  neuroscience.
