The training is designed around real-life urban test sites that are characterized by a poor acoustic environment due to noise from road, rail or air traffic. These test sites are provided by four major European cities (Berlin, Rome, Antwerpen and Brighton). To these test sites, the ESRs will apply their knowledge and skills gained from individual acoustics related research projects, in-depth courses on acoustics as well as on different aspects of spatial planning. All candidates must be fluent in spoken and written English. The R&D is highly multidisciplinary. An ideal candidate has an M.Sc. in engineering (acoustical, mechanical, electrical, industrial or civil engineering, engineering physics, etc.) or an architecture exam. For some positions also a background in Psychology is of interest. • Knowledge in acoustics is a strong advantage. • Candidates who have the proper qualifications may get the opportunity to perform this work as part of a PhD study. • All members of the network are equal opportunity employers, both female and male candidates are invited to apply.
