MSc/PhD positions in auditory perception/music cognition

The MAPLE (Music, Acoustics, Perception and LEarning) lab at McMaster
University has openings for MSc/PhD students interested in pursuing
advanced study in McMaster’s Department of Psychology, Neuroscience &
Behaviour (PNB). Graduate students in the lab will work closely with
the PI (Dr. Michael Schutz), and have access to the strong network of
researchers affiliated with the McMaster Institute of Music and the
Mind.   The lab houses a number of active research projects overviewed
here: http://maplelab.net/overview.  We are particularly interested in
students looking to connect with current projects on sensory
integration, the perception of amplitude envelope, and the
communication of emotion in music.

A background in music is helpful, but formal musical training is not a
requirement.  However, interested students will need a bachelor’s
degree in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Computer
Science, or another affiliated discipline.  Experience in computer
programming will be viewed favorably, but is not a requirement.
Canadian citizens are particularly encouraged to apply.  Inquiries
should be directed to Dr. Schutz (schutz@xxxxxxxxxxx).  Applications
received by Dec 15th will receive a full review (late applications
will be accepted, but those received by the 15th will receive first

McMaster is home to the renowned McMaster Institute for Music and the
Mind, which is in the process of constructing a new multi-million
dollar concert hall/research facility.  This one-of-a-kind research
center will offer an advanced virtual acoustics system, touchpad
responses on every audience seat, motion capture technology, parallel
EEG recording capability, and many other innovative research tools.
