A post-doctoral research position in the field of speech and audio coding
is open at Orange Labs in Lannion, France.

About Orange Labs:
The network of Orange Labs represents the France Telecom-Orange Group's
global innovation network. It is made up of 5,000 employees on four
continents. R&D is the principal source of innovation for the Group,
consisting of 3,600 researchers in 17 laboratories on four continents (8 in
France and 9 in Europe, America, Africa and Asia).
