PhD Studentship on Multichannel Audio at CDSPR, King's College London

PhD Studentship in Electronic Engineering  – Audio Signal Processing

Centre for Digital Signal Processing

Division of Engineering

King’s College London

The Centre for Digital Signal Processing in the Division of Engineering, King’s College London, invites applications for PhD students to pursue research in the field of perceptual sound field reconstruction/emulation. The goal of this project is to develop a new technology for multi-channel consumer audio which would significantly improve over existing techniques in terms of realism, the accuracy and stability of the auditory perspective, the size of the sweet listening spot and the persuasiveness of the envelopment experience. Further details about the project can be found at www.kcl.ac.uk/schools/pse/diveng/research/cdspr/zor/ .

This project is funded by EPSRC and includes provision for collaboration between the Centre for Digital Signal Processing at King’s College London and the Institute of Sound Recording, University of Surrey. There is one full PhD studentship available which provides for UK/EU fees and additional funding of around £1,200 per month for living expenses for 36 months.

The ideal candidate will possess an MSc in electrical engineering or another relevant area. Knowledge of advanced signal processing techniques and experience with sound field analysis and/or multi- channel audio technologies are essential for effective pursuance of the project.

The studentship is available immediately.

Candidates should submit a formal application for PhD studies in Electronic Engineering at King’s College London, indicating that they are applying for the EPSRC studentship in Perceptual Sound Field Reconstruction and indicating Dr Cvetkovic as their PhD advisor. An online application form can be found at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/graduate/apply/research.html .

Informal enquiries about the project and studentship can be made to Dr Zoran Cvetkovic via e-mail: zoran.cvetkovic@xxxxxxxxxx
