An ambitious and growing Cambridge audio company, whose products and applications range from consumer electronics through to the automotive industry, have an exciting opportunity for someone committed to audio related, mathematical research. The company would be ideal for a candidate keen to join a burgeoning Cambridge start-up, to work on products that could be found in millions of homes in the near future.

  • Experience of using Python and/or C/C++ and/or MATLAB to produce prototyping algorithms
  • A solid background in audio signal processing or speech processing
  • A real fervour and appetite for audio technology and research

Other desirable experience that will make you stand out from the crowd would include:

  • Bayesian methods, optimisation theory, complex tensor calculus and machine learning
  • Technical writing and experience with filing and supporting patents

You will need a PhD from a top university and a good degree (2.1 or above) preferably in Maths or Physics, together with strong A-level grades. Full permission to live and work in the UK without time limit, restriction or sponsorship will also be required.
