Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research fellow working in the field of spatial audio to join the the EPSRC funded project ‘Spatial Audio for Domestic Interactive Entertainment’, (SADIE) hosted at the Department of Theatre, Film and Television (TFTV) at the University of York.
This is a new position, which will support research to improve spatial audio delivery in UK homes. The research will enable scientific advances in perceptual modelling of dynamic sound source/listener movement and elevation, adapting to head movements and translation of the listening position in interactive games, providing a new algorithmic basis for enhanced spatial audio quality, focus and immersion. The research undertaken will be targeted at living rooms with next generation interactive media systems and will be subject to rigorous experimental validation. The project crosses the disciplines of psychophysics, acoustics, digital signal processing and human computer interaction to utilise significant academic and industrial support.
The post is full-time and is available for a period of 1 year.
Candidates are requested to submit a cover letter, a full academic CV, and a list of publications along with their application.
