Applications are invited for a 2 year Masters studentship, to start immediately, at the Dept. of Electronic Engineering, Cork Institute of Technology, Cork Ireland. The studentship provides support of 15000 p.a. and EU tuition fees. Applicants from outside the EU face a higher tuition fee.
The research is concerned with the computer-based modelling of musical playing style, in particular the relative deviations in timing, note duration and amplitude which help create _expression_ and playing style in solo musical performances, with a particular emphasis on Irish traditional music
The candidate is expected to have a good honours degree in electronic or computer engineering at upper second class or first class level. Knowledge of digital signal processing, while not essential, would be a distinct advantage. Also, a musical background, with a basic knowledge of music theory would be of considerable benefit. Experience with computer programming in C/C++ and MATLAB is also highly desireable.
