Subject: Text to Speech Synthesis Internships

Applications are invited from recent graduates, and current Masters or PhD
students for two student internships at Aculab this summer/autumn. The
internships are aimed at individuals who wish to gain commercial experience
in the field of text-to-speech synthesis. 

Applicants must have native fluency in French and/or German, and their
university background should be primarily in Linguistics. Applicants must
also be proficient in English, as this is the working language. Some
experience in C and/or C++ programming and familiarity with using Windows
would be advantageous, but these skills are not essential. 

Masters and PhD students should note that the emphasis will be firmly on
practical work, so it is unlikely that the internship will fit neatly into
your thesis or research.

The internship is expected to last for between three and four months. Start
and finish dates are negotiable, and pay will be organised on an individual

Please apply directly to me either via e-mail at:

or in writing to:

Aculab PLC
Bramley Road 
Mount Farm
Milton Keynes

Please include in your application letter where your area of linguistic
expertise lies, and state any relevant experience.
