Dear Members of the Liberationtech mailing list,

On behalf of Professor Echizen, National Institute of Informatics (NII), please let me draw your attention to this 
Postdoctoral Fellowship vacancy in a sophisticated environment for international research in Tokyo, Japan @ Echizen Laboratory, Digital Content and Media Sciences Research Division, National Institute of Informatics (NII). 
Please feel free to further distribute it.

Echizen and Yamagishi Laboratories of the NII have taken a leading role in tackling research issues relating to the JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (S) project “Communication System for Defending against Attacks of Media Clones”.

About this project:
Distribution of non-authentic media has become a potential threat in our daily life. A typical example is a fraud by voice impersonation of family members or friends. It is therefore of great importance to protect the receivers of such non-authentic but skilfully fabricated replicas of authentic media, called media clones, by means of media processing technologies towards safe and reliable society. The purpose of this research project is to realize a communication system that can defend against attacks of media clones. This project involves a number of research areas including media processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, computer vision, biometrics, and privacy-enhancing technologies.

About National Institute of Informatics (NII):
As Japan’s only general academic research institution seeking to create future value in informatics, the NII seeks to advance integrated research and development activities in information-related fields, including networking, software, and content. NII promotes the creation of a state-of-the-art academic-information infrastructure (the Cyber Science Infrastructure – CSI) with a focus on partnerships and other joint efforts with universities and research institutions throughout Japan, as well as industries and civilian organizations.
