Acoustics and audio research has been conducted at Salford University for over 60 years. It is funded by research councils, national and international government bodies, and industry. Our research has fed into products that companies make and sell worldwide, as well as regulations and standards used in the UK, Europe and internationally. We currently have about twenty research active staff and a lively community of PhD students. Staff and students have won numerous awards for their research.
We have world-class acoustics laboratories: listening rooms, reverberation rooms, anechoic chambers, an accredited calibration laboratory and state of the art equipment and instrumentation. Through the laboratories we are able to bring much of our fundamental research into real life applications. The Acoustics Research Centre is the primary partner for Acoustics research in the BBC Audio Research Partnership.
We are looking for a PhD candidate to work on developing methods for the control of noise from explosions used in industrial processes. The successful candidate will be expected to develop analytical theory and numerical simulations of the suppression of blast noise, and perform laboratory and field experimental trials to develop and validate the solutions. The candidate will spend the initial proportion of their time at the University of Salford for research skills development and laboratory pilot studies, and will then will be located at the DNV Spadeadam Research & Testing site.
We are looking for high quality candidates with an expertise in the following areas;
