The Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) at the University of Southampton is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral research associate for a duration of 3-years who will work on the generation of virtual sound images for multiple listeners. This will involve the further development of systems for delivering binaural sound via loudspeakers for a limited number of listeners (e.g., 2-5) and on the optimisation of multiple loudspeaker outputs for large audiences (e.g., 50-200). We are seeking candidates with a Ph.D. (or equivalent professional qualification and experience) in acoustical engineering and/or audio signal processing. The successful candidate will have demonstratable experience in undertaking both experiments and computer simulations in acoustics and/or signal processing as evidenced by publications in top-tier conferences and journals.  The work will contribute to a larger EPSRC funded project entitled “Challenges in Immersive Audio Technology” (CIAT) that is being conducted in a collaboration between King’s College London and the Universities of Southampton and Surrey.

This post is offered on a full time, fixed term basis due to funding restrictions.

The proposed start date for the post is the 1st March 2024, but it can be deferred, if required.
