Dear Bioacoustics people, (with apologies for cross-posting)

We are recruiting for a Research Fellow in Design Research for Sound Sensing, a 
2-year post as part of the project AI for Sound ( 
Please forward the information below to any colleagues who may be interested.

I would particularly like to encourage applications from women, disabled and 
Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, since these groups are currently 
underrepresented in our area.

Many thanks,



Research Fellow in Design Research for Sound Sensing

        Location: University of Surrey, Guildford, UK
        Closing Date: Wednesday 23 November 2022 (23:59 GMT)
        Further details:

Applications are invited for a 2-year Research Fellow in Design Research for 
Sound Sensing, to work full-time on an EPSRC-funded Fellowship project "AI for 
Sound", to start on 12 December 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. The aim 
of the project is to undertake research in computational analysis of everyday 
sounds, in the context of a set of real-world use cases in assisted living in 
the home, smart buildings, smart cities, and the creative sector.

The post holder will be responsible for participative engagement with domain 
experts and users, including assessing user requirements, running and engaging 
in design workshops, and conducting evaluation studies on the project, both to 
drive the technology research, and to ensure successful development and 
application of the project technology. The postholder will be based in CVSSP 
and work under the direction of PI (EPSRC Fellow) Prof Mark Plumbley.

The successful applicant is expected to have a PhD (gained or near completion) 
in Design Research, Human Computer Interaction, Interaction Design, Service 
Design, or a closely-related discipline, or equivalent professional experience, 
and experience in assessing user requirements, conducting evaluation studies, 
and using participatory research methods. Experience of running and/or engaging 
in design workshops, research experience in design for human interaction with 
sounds and/or soundscapes is desirable; as is experience in the organisation of 
public engagement activities. Interests related to noise and soundscapes and 
the role of sound in society is also desirable.

CVSSP is an International Centre of Excellence for research in Audio-Visual 
Machine Perception, with 125 researchers, a grant portfolio of £24M (£17.5M 
EPSRC) from EPSRC, EU, Innovate UK, charity and industry, and a turnover of 
£7M/annum. The Centre has state-of-the-art acoustic capture and analysis 
facilities and a Visual Media Lab with video and audio capture facilities 
supporting research in real-time video and audio processing and visualisation. 
CVSSP has a compute facility with 120 GPUs for deep learning and >1PB of 
high-speed secure storage.
