Adoc Talent Management is currently recruiting for our client Postdoctoral Fellows in Efficient Deep Learning for Speech processing, Machine listening and MIR solutions towards AI-powered hearables. Our client is an international top-ranked academic institution of higher education in France. One of the leading engineering and management schools in France, it is known for its value-creating and rigorous research, high selectivity and interdisciplinarity, conducting scientific research in large-scale projects with disruptive and innovative solutions.


Under supervision of the research director and in close collaboration with the other research group members, you will take charge of your own postdoctoral research on a research topic related to efficient deep learning applied to speech processing, machine listening, MIR or audio/music DSP. Known for its demand on scientific excellence, you will join the research group to rethink and revolutionize hearable technologies (especially TWS/earbuds) by offering extremely efficient real-time machine listening, speech processing and MIR solutions which can run on very low consumption hardware.

You can work on topics like model-based, few-shot, frugal, self-supervised and semi-supervised learning, domain-shift adaptation, knowledge distillation and deep network quantization, online speaker identification, diarization and separation, speech enhancement/denoising, target speaker extraction, DCASE topics (acoustic scene classification, sound event detection and localization) and MIR topics (music representation learning, real-time remastering, autotagging).

You will work in a research laboratory known for its extensive coverage of topics in the field of information and communication technologies. Its core subject areas are computer science, networks, data science, signal and image processing and digital communications. The laboratory is also active in issues related to systems engineering and applied mathematics.

You will benefit from great freedom and flexibility and get to collaborate with big industrial partners at the cutting edge of technology.

The position, offering a real autonomy in its missions, is to be filled as soon as possible in Paris.


Holding a PhD in Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics or equivalent with a list of publications, you know how to pursue and develop your own ideas for solving research problems, and communicating the results. You already have research experience in speech processing, machine listening, MIR, machine learning, signal processing and deep learning (ideally) applied to audio with excellent coding skills.

You are passionate about research, and you have a natural affinity with the research topics, them being a source of motivation for you. You are intellectually curious and mathematically sophisticated and have developed a strong research identity with the capacity to go substantially beyond the state-of-art. Agile, proactive, and dynamic, your mindset allows you to play a constructive role in the research project. With good communication skills and appreciating interdisciplinary teamwork and interactions, you are fluent in English.

For you to be comfortable in this context, your autonomy, your versatility, your pragmatism, your sense of organization and time management are important assets.
