Student Assistant (SHK) or Research Assistant with Bachelor's Degree (WHB)

We are looking for students to join the DFG Research Group 2457 ``Acoustic Sensor Networks''. This group is dedicated to a whole range of questions, from investigations of the interaction of the boundary conditions of the communication system with the requirements of acoustic signal processing, to signal extraction and enhancement, to the classification of acoustic events and scenes.

These are temporary activities of 9.5 (possibly 19) hours per week.

Your tasks (depending on skills):

  • Implement and test algorithms for signal processing in distributed wireless sensor networks.
  • Building a prototype from Raspberry PIs and smartphones

Hiring criteria

  • Knowledge of C/C++ and/or Python
  • Basic knowledge of Linux (e.g. Ubuntu)
  • Ability to work in a team
