PostDoc/PhD   ·   Full time


Three positions are available at the Postdoc level or for graduate students currently enrolled in a Canadian university through a Mitacs collaboration between AAVAA and McGill University (Prof. Sylvain Baillet). We are looking for a Computational Neuroscientist, Machine Learning Engineer, and Audio Enhancement and Signal Processing Engineer.

The positions are for the duration of 12 months, with the ability to renew the contract at the end of each term. In line with social distancing, the positions may initially be remote, which may evolve to be in-office positions located at AAVAA as the situation changes.

Please see below to ensure you have experience in several of the related areas.
