Meta AR/VR Job | Research Scientist, Perceptual Audio

Job(岗位): Research Scientist, Perceptual Audio

Type(岗位类型): Engineering | Hardware

Citys(岗位城市): Sunnyvale, CA

Date(发布日期): Before 2021-12-14

Summary(岗位介绍)

The perception of audio is at the center of our research, as it informs our work in spatial audio, speech intelligibility, defining audio quality, and many of the AR/VR systems. As a Research Scientist on the Advanced Audio Technologies Team at Facebook Reality Labs, you will be tackling the psychoacoustic challenges that define cutting-edge augmented & virtual reality, conducting research at the intersection of basic and applied science, as it informs our technology directions and identifies opportunities for revolutions in our audio quality metrics and audio experiences.

We are seeking a Research Scientist who is an expert in psychoacoustics and audio perception, and is excited about doing research that helps us inform AR/VR audio requirements and metrics for new technologies. We seek out specific expertise in one or a combination in the following areas: spatial audio, speech intelligibility, audio perceptual evaluation, experimental design, computational modeling of the audio system, audio quality metrics, intensity and loudness perception, ML/AI applications to perceptual audio, audio-visual perception.

Qualifications(岗位要求)

PhD in hearing science, acoustics, acoustic engineering, perceptual psychology, psychoacoustics, neuroscience, or a related field with an emphasis on perceptual modeling, psychoacoustics/physics, and/or metrics evaluating perceptual performance.

Knowledge of how display characteristics interact with visual encoding processes in the generation of visual artifacts.

2+ years experience with MATLAB, Python, or similar program for stimulus presentation and analysis.

4+ years of experience with experimental methodology, psychophysics, and/or related statistical analysis.

Experience with research publicized in high-impact journals and international conference presentations or publications.

Knowledge of the human auditory system and experience applying this model to novel situations and predict how the ear, brain, and body will respond.

Description(岗位职责)

Conduct research in how new audio technologies, and/or acoustic systems can impact perceived audio quality on current and future products.

Derive novel experimental and/or modeling approaches to assess the impact of distortion, compression, spatial and temporal properties, and perceptual artifacts on audio quality in AR/VR.

Work with cross-functional partners in both research and product development to understand and prioritize perceptual needs.

Employ existing knowledge of human sensory encoding and audio quality metrics to help guide hardware and software engineering efforts for new technologies.

Communicate the findings from modeling, psychoacoustics, & empirical experiments to help set target requirements for acoustic systems in AR/VR.

Explore opportunities and requirements to create new audio experiences and perform research necessary to deliver them.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

2+ years of postdoctoral training, or industry experience conducting research investigating audio quality or audio perception.

Knowledge of standard audio quality metrics, and deriving new metrics for novel environments and/or display architectures.

Experience with MATLAB, R, Python, and/or C++.

Experience with user studies (psychoacoustics) and human factors.

Familiarity with VR, MR, AR platforms.
