> New PhD Program in Music Technology at NYU:
> The Music Technology Program at New York University (NYU) is pleased
> to announce the opening of its new Ph.D. program in Music Technology,
> to start in the Fall of 2008. The doctoral program and its curriculum
> are the results of collaboration between NYU's Departments of Music
> 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.
> Information for Applicants:
> We are currently receiving applications. The application deadline for
> Fall 2008 admission is December 15th, 2007.
> Applicants are expected to demonstrate a record of excellence in
> academic performance and a strong commitment to their particular field
> 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
> exact number depending on the quality of applications. Doctoral
> fellowships are for 3 years and include full tuition remission plus
> fees, a yearly stipend of US $21,000, and health benefits. For more
