Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

Providing consultancy for acoustic engineering projects

Whether you are a recent Master's or PhD graduate or more experienced engineer / maths modeller, our client is looking for expertise and engineering knowledge in mathematical acoustics. As a Computational Acoustics Modeller, you will be joining a technically diverse applied maths team providing specialised acoustics understanding. You'll use these skills and expertise to provide consultancy-style services to academic and industrial clients which could be prototyping, proof-of-principle work, demonstrations and / or workshops.


  • 1st / 2.1 in applied maths or physics including a Master's or PhD in a relevant subject area.
  • Demonstrable technical project experience in acoustics which could include non-linear acoustics, work with loudspeakers, microphones or piezoelectric devices (relating to acoustic technology).
  • Ideally experience in mathematical modelling using mainstream computational software tools.
  • Good communication skills - both written and oral.

Applicants must have unrestricted rights to work in the UK - no company sponsorship is available.

This is an excellent opportunity to either start your career in industry (having completed a Master's, PhD or Postdoc) or redirect your current acoustics-based engineering career within a more client-facing position.

On offer is a competitive salary, a supportive company culture and benefits. Training on relevant computational modelling is available if required. Hybrid working is possible, and onsite parking is available at their Cambridge offices.
