Found in: Neuvoo Bulk DK


At the Technical Faculty of IT and Design, Department of Electronic Systems, a position as postdoc in Robust Networked Dynamic Sound Zones is open for appointment from May 1, 2021, or soon hereafter. The position is available for a period of 2 years, with a contract start latest on September 1, 2021. Within electronics engineering, Aalborg University is known worldwide for its high academic quality and its research programmes' societal relevance.

Job description

We are looking for a Postdoc to take part in research and knowledge exchange in the research project Interactive Sound Zones for Better Living (ISOBEL).

The aim of the ISOBEL project is to enable control of reproduced sound in domestic and health care environments. The approach is to reproduce specific audio content (e.g. music) in particular spatial regions of the room, so called sound zones. These sound zones are dynamic and interactive relative to the audio content and the requirements of the occupants of the zones. The sound zones are created using multiple synchronized wireless loudspeakers, which in unison create the desired sound field. The sound field is measured using microphones at given positions in the room and extrapolated to the regions of interest before being used for online adaptation of the control algorithm.

The main purpose of this Postdoc project is to use statistical signal processing, machine learning, and auditory perception in order to analyze and design dynamic sound zones in health care and domestic environments. The sound zones should be robust towards failures on the wireless links and changing room acoustics or user requirements.

Qualification requirements

Appointment as Postdoc presupposes scientific qualifications at PhD–level or similar scientific qualifications. The research potential of each applicant will be emphasized in the overall assessment. Appointment as a Postdoc cannot exceed a period of four years in total at Aalborg University.
