You will join the Vibroacoustics Group and Audiotechnology Group within the Division of Applied Acoustics at Chalmers University of Technology . The project that you will be working with covers areas of building acoustics and room acoustics. It is centred around the subjective perception of different design solutions evaluated in virtual environments. Your work will include acoustic design, different auralisation techniques to create virtual environments, as well as evaluation of the human perception in relation to different design solutions. In particular, this methodolgy will be applied to the acoustic quality of open plan offices. You will be employed at Chalmers for a duration of 4 years including the standard social benefits, and you will receive a salary according to current salary agreements.
You will be working with the modelling of different aoustic environments in order to create signals suitable for auralisation. You will implement your simulations into different approaches for creating virtual environments where listening experiments can be carried out. The work will require both simulation techniques and acoustic measurement techniques. You will publish your results at international conferences and in international journals. Approx. 20 % of the work hours will be dedicated to departmental work, which includes assisting in teaching in the MSc program "Sound and Vibration" (in English).
- MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science or related field with a strong focus on acoustics and signal processing
- Strong background in acoustics
- Strong skills in Matlab and/or Python
- Strong signal processing skills
- Strong knowledge on spatial auditory perception
- Excellent communication skills (oral and written) and a strong willingness to work in a team are a must.
- Good language skills in English are required. Knowledge of the Swedish language is not a requirement.
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of four years.
