  • to understand how people recognise and value the acoustic environments
  • to construct a repository of open access sound contents
  • to create a virtual sound museum which can contribute to stimulate the creativity of emerging artists and at the same time preserve a kind of sound heritage
  • to promote sound literacy based on a proposal of pedagogical activities

The research team is now recruiting a new researcher.

Candidates should fit the following main requirements:

1) to hold PhD in Communication Sciences

2) to be proficient in Portuguese and English
