and Performing Arts Professions in the Steinhardt School, and Computer
Science and Mathematics in the Courant Institute.

Our research focuses on five main aspects: Music Information
Retrieval, Spatial Audio, Music and Emotions, Interactive Music
Systems, and Computer-based Music Visualization and Analysis. We are
open to research ideas concerning the relation between technology and
the creation, recording, processing, analysis, performance and
dissemination of music as well.

We are currently receiving applications. The application deadline for
Fall 2008 admission is December 15th, 2007.

of study. They are expected to be proficient in at least one, but
preferably more, of the following areas of knowledge: music
technology, music performance, musicology, music theory, cognition,
physics, mathematics, computer science, computer programming,
electronics and signal processing; and are required to have a relevant
master's degree completed with a high grade point average (or
equivalent for non-US students).

A small number of doctoral fellowships are also on offer, with the
