The post-doctoral fellow will conduct experiments on adaptation to speech disturbances and production conditions, aimed at testing the integrity/flexibility of speech units and their variability according to their structural/motor complexity or frequency. Speech will be compared with other non-verbal movements and data from healthy speakers will be compared with data from speakers with different motor speech disorders.
As part of the MoSpeeDi project, the Laboratoire de Phonétique et Phonologie (LPP - CNRS/Sorbonne Nouvelle) in Paris is offering a full-time postdoctoral position for 12 months (with a possible extension of a few months).
The post-doctoral fellow will be in charge of designing, carrying out and processing experiments in collaboration with the other members of the project.
The overall objective of the project is to better understand the processes and representations at play during speech production, focusing on the final stages of the process where the encoded linguistic message is transformed into articulated speech. At the interface between linguistic and motor processes, these steps are also associated with various disorders, Motor Speech Disorders (MSD, dysarthria and speech apraxia). Articulation and acoustic data will be collected and analyzed experimentally for healthy and MSD speakers to (a) better understand the phonetic and motor speech planning and programming stages, (b) identify markers of these processes, and (c) better isolate and categorize speech disorders in MSDs.
- PhD in phonetics or on a subject related to speech production or speech motor control.
- Good knowledge of speech production and motor control models, particularly on adaptation phenomena and/or speech motor disorders.
- Experience in signal processing (acoustic and/or articulatory)
- Programming skills (e. g. with Praat, Matlab, Python or R)
- Strong statistical analysis skills and good writing skills
- Basic knowledge of French and excellent proficiency in English
The candidate will work closely with the collaborators of the MoSpeeDi project.
The Phonics and Phonology Laboratory (CNRS/Université Sorbonne-Nouvelle), located in the 5th arrondissement in Paris, is a research, research training and teaching unit in experimental phonetics and phonology.
