The Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona is opening 4 funded PhD positions to start in the Fall of 2009. The candidates have to apply before May 15th to the PhD program of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies of the UPF.
The MTG carries out research in topics such as as sound processing and synthesis; music content description; interactive music systems; computational models of perceptual and music cognition; and the technologies related with music social networks. The accepted PhD students will carry out research within one of the projects of the MTG and thus the candidates have to demonstrate a research record and make a research proposal related to one of these topics. Depending on his/her academic background a candidate may be asked to apply to the Master in Sound and Music Computing before being considered for the PhD.
PhD candidates should first contact Prof. Xavier Serra in order to get an initial approval of the research proposal to be submitted.
