Research Fellow: Spatial Audio Assessment (Fixed term 12 months)
The Acoustics Research Centre at the University of Salford is looking to employ a postdoctoral research fellow to work on an EPSRC funded programme grant on spatial audio. 3D sound can offer listeners the experience of "being there" at a live event, such as the Proms, but currently requires highly controlled listening spaces and loudspeaker setups. The goal of the programme grant is to realise practical 3D audio for the general public at home. The project is a collaboration with the Universities of Surrey and Southampton, and BBC R&D.
You will lead the work at Salford University investigating how to assess listener experience of spatial audio systems. You will do this by developing, carrying out and analysing psychoacoustic measurements. You will work closely with BBC R&D and Delta to develop and refine assessment methods relevant to new international standards.
We expect candidates to have a PhD in acoustics, preferably in spatial audio. The successful candidate will be proficient in psychoacoustic experimentation.
For informal enquiries please contact Professor Trevor Cox, t.j.cox@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
