PhD Scholarships at Univ of Queensland: sonification, auditory attention


The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

The Cognitive Engineering Research Group (CERG) at The University of
Queensland is Australia's leading university-based research group in the
area of cognitive engineering. We invite applications from suitable
candidates wishing to complete PhD research in cognitive engineering, human
factors, or engineering psychology. We have several funded projects in
sonification and auditory attention as applied to monitoring and control of
real-time systems, which complement our long-standing interest in visual
display design for such systems. We seek PhD candidates with interests in
applications of sonification and auditory attention.

See http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~pennys/cerg/ for further details of our
activities and http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~pennys/cerg/cergphd.htm for how
to apply and for PhD and scholarship application forms to download.

Applications for PhD places and applications for scholarships to support
PhD studies must be made separately. If you are applying from overseas,
please be aware that the academic year in Australia runs from March to

Please always talk with potential supervisors before making an application.
As noted above, supervisors are available within the CERG group (see our
website). In addition, PhD students associated with CERG may wish to have
shared supervision with UQ faculty members in other faculties, centres, or

Applications for PhD places in cognitive engineering can be made through
either of two schools principally involved in the cognitive engineering
initiative (other schools may be appropriate also).

About The University of Queensland and the Key Centre

The University of Queensland is one of Australia's top research
universities (in the so-called Group of Eight) as well as a member of the
international Universitas 21 consortium. The Queensland state government is
a strong backer of university research, with its Smart State initiative and
various large-scale biotechnology initiatives.

The University of Queensland is in the city of Brisbane, in a picturesque
location on the Brisbane River. Located in southern Queensland, Brisbane
enjoys a warm, sunny climate. The city is the gateway to such attractions
such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Gold Coast.

The ARC Key Centre for Human Factors was founded in 1999 through a grant
from the Australian Research Council. The Key Centre is a national
consortium of university-based human factors laboratories or "nodes".
University of Queensland is the headquarters of the centre and includes two
nodes: (a) the Centre for Human Factors and Applied Cognitive Psychology
and (b) the Perception and Motor Systems Laboratory within UQ's Department
of Human Movement Studies.

The University of Queensland therefore provides a unique vantage point for
the student wishing not only to pursue PhD research in cognitive
engineering, but also to be exposed to a wide variety of human factors
issues. Moreover, in Semester 2 2002 the centre initiates a suite of
postgraduate courses in human factors to be taken by online distance education.
