Missions

In the context of the ANR-DFG SALAMMBO project (http://salammbo-anr-dfg.ovh), we are offering a full-time, fixed term (12 months) post-doc position starting early 2020. The aim of the post-doc will be to run an experimental study that will contribute to a better understanding of the link between hand movements and oral language by looking at the coupling of the different systems over time at different levels (hand motion, parameters of speech production, memory…). The study will be run at GIPSA-lab in Grenoble and will use motion capture.

Work Context

Gipsa-lab is a joint research unit of the CNRS, Grenoble-INP and the University of Grenoble Alpes; it is an agreement with Inria and the Observatory of Sciences of the Universe of Grenoble.

With a staff of 350 people including about 150 doctoral students, Gipsa-lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory developing fundamental and final research on complex signals and systems. He is internationally recognized for his research in Automatic, Signal and Images, Speech and Cognition and develops projects in the strategic areas of energy, environment, communication, intelligent systems, life and health and linguistic engineering.

Due to the nature of its research, Gipsa-lab maintains a constant link with the business community through a strong industrial partnership.

Its potential as teacher-researchers and researchers is invested in training at the universities and engineering schools of Grenoble (Grenoble Alpes University).

Gipsa-lab develops its research through 12 teams organized in 3 departments:

Automatic

Images signal

Word-cognition

It has 150 permanent and about 250 non-permanent (doctoral student, postdoctoral fellow, visiting researcher, Master student intern ...)

The objective of the Perception, Control, Multimodality and Dynamics of Speech team is to study the cognitive bases of spoken communication: the functioning of encoding and decoding mechanisms (production, perception), their implementation in the development of the individual or species, their interactions in communication, their role in the structuring of language units. In this context, the ANR-DFG SALAMMBO project develops around the embodied theories of cognition and aims to better understand the body ground of spoken language by studying the interaction of speech and movement of limbs and breathing.
