Fully Funded PhD studentships - Open University (UK)

PhD Studentships - Open University, Milton Keynes, UK

The Open University has fully funded full-time PhD studentships
available from Oct 2014.

I am interested in hearing from candidates in music computing,
particularly for combinations of the following topics, but students
are free to choose an area.

Music and emotion
Music and narrative
Computational Musicology
Musical Pattern Discovery
Music Generation
Music for Computer Games
Collaborative Music Environments
Musical Tabletops

A separate topic that might be of interest, and draw on some of the
same themes and technologies, is the use of ubiquitous technology in
group conflict resolution.

Please contact Dr Robin Laney (robin.laney @ open.ac.uk) for an
informal discussion and advice on constructing a proposal.

Applications should comprise an application form, a CV and a PhD
proposal. Application forms and general advice on PhD proposals can be
found at:


Closing date: March 31st 2014.
