  Improvements in headphone based 3-D audio using adaptive binaural signal processing and robust head-tracking
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Design of immersive binaural surround systems requires an understanding of the perceptual cues for sound source localisation. Any source at a given angle of incidence to the head will create subtle time and level difference cues at the ears and is subject to spectral shaping due to the pinnae.
  Using multibeam sonar to monitor animal behaviour and environmental interactions at marine renewable energy sites
  Dr B Williamson, Prof V Nikora, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

To date, there are 8.5 GW of installed UK offshore wind capacity, and it is estimated 20% of current UK electricity demand could be met with wave and tidal stream sources.
  Information Component Analysis via Deep Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As their prominent characteristics, perceptual data often convey the mixing information, which often results in the inadequate performance for a specific perceptual information processing task due to the interference of irrelevant information components.
  Acoustic Black Holes for Noise and Vibration Control
  Dr J Cheer
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Jordan Cheer. Co-supervisor Prof Steve Daley. Project description. A fully funded industrial studentship is available for a high-quality student to work in the area of acoustic black holes for noise and vibration control.
  ISVR-SPCG-569: Development of a small -scale, low cost underwater vehicle for acoustic noise assessment
  Dr J Cheer, Prof S.R. Turnock, Prof S Daley
Application Deadline: 6 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing international trade is leading to an explosion in the amount of shipping worldwide, which in turn is increasing the levels of noise pollution in our oceans.
  Automatic Activity Analysis, Detection and Recognition
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Activity detection, analysis and recognition are related to several important areas in machine perception research and applications.
  PhD in Acoustic Sensing
  Prof K Horoshenkov
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A great opportunity has arisen for a research student (PhD) to join a prestigious Programme Grant funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and led by the University of Sheffield (www.pipebots.ac.uk).
  The impact of hearing difficulty on conversational interaction
  Dr D Knox, Dr R Gibson, Dr G Cassidy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SEBE-19-001. This project focuses on how hearing difficulty impacts individuals’ ability to interact successfully. Conversational interaction is fundamental to the development of social attachments.
  Leaky Wave Acoustics - meta-atoms as passive resonant elements to yield highly directional radiation or detection of sound
  Prof A P Hibbins, Prof J R Sambles
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint supervisors. Prof Alastair P Hibbins, Prof J Roy Sambles. External partner. Dr Ben Hodder (QinetiQ). ***. The ability to emit or receive sound with directional dependence is of great relevance to acoustic imaging and navigation applications.
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Joint elastic-electrical properties of clay-rich sediments with fluid-filled fractures
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Accurate characterization of shallow sub-seafloor geological reservoirs and overburden sediments is essential for geological CO2 storage, gas hydrate exploitation and monitoring of fluids and host sediment properties during gas production and CO2 storage activities.
  The deep roots and internal structure of active and extinct seafloor massive sulphide deposits
  Dr G Bayrakci, Prof T Minshull, Dr B Murton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Hydrothermal polymetallic seafloor massive sulphide (SMS) deposits form when seawater circulates within oceanic rocks driven by heat from below.
  Advanced NDT for Future Oil & Gas Inspection
  Dr C Macleod, Prof S.G. Pierce
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description (maximum 300 words). Baker Hughes GE are the world’s first and only fullstream Oil & Gas company, with the capability, portfolio, technology and the people to radically transform the oil and gas industry and deliver unparalleled improvement in industrial yield for their customers.
  Natural porous vibro-acoustic media
  Dr S Oberst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Audio, Acoustics and Vibration (CAAV) was formed in 2017 and now has nine full time academic staff. The Centre is based at Tech Lab, which is a brand new research led facility that is close to the airport in Sydney.
  Soundfield analysis and synthesis using higher order ambisonics
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ambisonics is a spatial audio capture and reproduction system that has been utilised since the 1970’s, primarily for music reproduction, but has of late gained significant interest in broadcast, gaming and interactive immersive video frameworks.
