Job description
We offer a postdoctoral position in applied machine learning for industrial and medical applications. The position can have a focus on the areas of deep learning for audio analysis, deep learning for sound in measurements, as well as implementation of machine learning on embedded systems. The position is linked to collaborating research groups with activities in condition monitoring, sound analysis and embedded systems. The research is carried out in close collaboration with national and international partners.

The focus of the position lies within the area of deep learning for the characterization and positioning of sound. The positions may also include implementation aspects of machine learning models on embedded systems. The work can be experimental and theoretical in nature and include data collection, development and verification of models, and generalization of solutions.
