Betreff: [cec-c] 4 fully-funded PhD fellowships, Music Technology at NYU

The Music Technology steinhardt.nyu.edu/music/technology program

of New York University is accepting applications for at least 4

fully-funded PhD fellowships to start in Fall 2017. Fellowships are for

4 years including full tuition remission, health insurance and a yearly

stipend. Accepted candidates will join the Music and Audio Research

Laboratory (MARL steinhardt.nyu.edu/marl/), a multidisciplinary

team of scholars and practitioners working at the intersection of sound,

music, science and technology, and will work on a variety of projects

including recently-funded initiatives such as the NYU Holodeck

http://www.nyu-x.org/holodeck.html, SONYC is

December 1.

We believe that both our program and the research community benefit from

the diverse viewpoints and ideas of a diverse body of scholars.

Therefore *we strongly encourage applications from women and other

groups traditionally underrepresented in science and technology research*.

Any questions about the program and our research can be sent to Juan

Pablo Bello (jpbello@nyu.edu jpbello@nyu.edu>).

About MARL: Since its foundation in 2008, MARL has produced more than

175 publications in books, conference proceedings and scientific

journals; raised in excess of $4M in funding from governmental agencies,

industry, private foundations, and a variety of university initiatives;

and gained visibility in a multiplicity of research communities such as

ICAD, AES, ISMIR, ICMC, NIME, and SMPC. Most importantly all of our PhD

graduates have gone to pursue research careers in industry and academia

in their areas of specialization.

About the Department: Music Technology at NYU is housed within the

Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions

steinhardt.nyu.edu/music/ in the Steinhardt School of Culture,

Education, and Human Development. Founded in 1925, Music and Performing

Arts Professions functions as NYU’s „school“ of music and developed into

a major research and practice center in music technology, music

business, music composition, film scoring, music performance practices,

performing arts therapies, and the performing arts-in-education (music,

dance, and drama). Today, 1,600 students majoring in these renowned

music and performing arts programs are guided by 400 faculty. Our degree

programs are marked by an integration of performance, research,

technology, and practice, in ways that bring performance majors and

composers together with choreographers, directors, actors, dancers,

educators, librettists, and filmmakers in collaborative projects often

reviewed by the New York media.

About the University: New York University is the largest private

research institution in the United States, and one of the few schools

where faculty and students pursue exceptional scholarship that

integrates creative practice with STEM research. Students in Music

Technology take advantage of not only their own faculty and facilities

but also the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences

http://www.cims.nyu.edu/, the Polytechnic School of Engineering

engineering.nyu.edu/, and research centers such as the Center for

Urban Science and Progress cusp.nyu.edu/, the Center for Data

Science cds.nyu.edu/ and the Media and Games Network

magnet.nyu.edu/ (MAGNET).
