Programmer/ Digital Signal Processor (2 positions)

University of Auckland, School of Biological Sciences
12-18 Month Fixed Term Contracts

UniServices is a leading edge research, consulting and contracting company fully owned by The University of Auckland.

We are seeking two Programmers/Digital Signal Processors for the School of Biological Sciences (SBS) to carry out research into automated acoustic identification of bats and birds from their vocalisations. This work will be undertaken under the direction of Drs Stuart Parsons (SBS) and Joseph Szewczak (Humboldt State University).

The work will involve appying digital signal processing techniques to automatically extract vocalisations from background noise and classify them to species using multivariate statistics, machine learning techniques such as artificial neural networks and support vector machines, and speech recognition algorithms.

An undergraduate or postgraduate degree in computer science, engineering or biological sciences is preferred, as is experience in digital signal processing. Previous experience using Matlab and National Instruments LabView, and programming in Java, would be an advantage. You will also be a good team player, have good verbal and written communication skills, be methodical and be able to work independently whilst assisting the research team to achieve set milestones.

The salary is dependent upon background and experience and will be within the range NZ$50,000 to NZ$55,000 (about what a post-doc earns) for a full-time appointment for 12 months. We are also willing to consider fractional appointments over a time period of up to 18 months.
