An AHRC-funded PhD studentship in Music Psychology is available from 1

The studentship forms part of the AHRC-funded project Musical Impact:

Conservatoires UK, the organisation that represents nine major UK

University and Cardiff Metropolitan University, professional musicians
and their employers via the Musicians' Union (MU) and the Association
of British Orchestras (ABO) and health practitioners and researchers

The successful applicant will be undertaking research associated with

analysis and the preparation of outputs. Data collected will form the
basis of the student's doctoral thesis, underpinned by his or her own
independent scholarship. The thesis must be completed and submitted by
