Télécom Paris is a French leading engineering school and scientific research institution, founded in July 1878. It is a founding member of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, a world-class scientific and technological institution.

The Information Processing and Communication Laboratory (LTCI) is Télécom Paris’ in-house research laboratory. Since January 2017, it has continued the work previously carried out by the CNRS joint research unit of the same name. The LTCI was created in 1982 and is known for its extensive coverage of topics in the field of information and communication technologies. The LTCI’s 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.

The open position will be hosted by Télécom Paris’ Audio Data Analysis and Signal Processing (ADASP) group, a subgroup of the statistics, signal processing and machine learning (S²A) team, within the Images, Data & Signals (IDS) department.
