Research Internship M2

IMT Mines Ales / Association Migrateurs Rhône-Méditerranée


Monitoring the numbers of shad at their reproduction sites in the Rhone basin is an important indicator for measuring inter-annual changes in their population. The MRM association develop acoustic approaches to monitor migratory fishes. Shad  spawn  at  night  close  to  the  water  surface,  turning quickly  and  noisily, and  emitting  a characteristic sound lasting a few seconds known as a “spawning splash”. The automatic detection of the spawning splash is a very promising method to generalize the counting and improve the population monitoring.


During this internship, the master student will work on the acoustic monitoring approaches in the following directions:
  • Study of the state-of-the-art approaches in the field of audio event detection,
  • Implementation of a baseline methods involving sound processing, deep learning, and transfer learning,
  • Implementation of data  augmentation methods.

Visits to the MRM office in Arles will be planned, in order to get acquainted with the context.

The publication of a scientific article will also be considered.

Minimum qualifications

  • Currently pursuing a M.S. in Informatics and/or Acoustic
  • Experience in deep learning and/or audio processing
  • Programming experience (preferably python)
  • Interest for ecology
