Fully Funded PhD Studentship: School Of Design, Engineering And  
Computing, Bournemouth University, England.
The Creative Technology Research Group(CTRG) at the School of Design,  
Engineering & Computing (DEC), Bournemouth University (BU), is pleased  
to invite applications for a PhD studentship with full financial  

The Studentship offers a maintenance grant of £13,400 per annum and  
waiver of the full-time research student fee. The post will be awarded  
on a full-time basis for a period of 36 months. The studentship will  
focus on the area of Networked Music and Audio Interactions.

The discipline of Network music performance (NMP) allowing performers,  
studio musicians and producers to connect over high-speed networks and  
create audio and video content collaboratively is now a reality.  
Software tools and strategies developed over the last few years have  
led to various global events, projects and publications.

This has allowed the NMP research community to develop a new musical  
paradigm known as network music, where music becomes network-centric  
and cannot be performed outside of a networked situation. Based on  
this groundwork, the need to develop and implement interactive  
multimodal applications to further develop network music has never  
been greater.

Applicants will preferably have a good first degree (first or upper- 
second class) and/or Masters degree in music technology or related  
discipline such as computer science ; or a Bachelor degree with  
equivalent research or industry working experience. The ideal  
candidate will show an interest in developing novel multimodal tools  
and strategies focusing on high-quality audio, networked audio  
monitoring, visualization, synchronous interactions and high-quality  

Candidates for the above must demonstrate outstanding qualities and be  
motivated to complete a PhD in 3 years. All candidates must satisfy  
the School's minimum doctoral entry criteria for studentships of: an  
honours degree at Upper Second Class (2.1) and /or an appropriate  
Masters degree. An IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 minimum is essential  
for candidates for whom English is not their first language.

Please note that the studentship is available to international
