The MAPLE (Music, Acoustics, Perception and LEarning) lab at McMaster University has an opening for a new MSc/PhD student interested in pursuing advanced study in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB). This new student will join a dynamic, growing research team housed in a newly renovated lab space, with access to the strong network of researchers affiliated with the McMaster Institute of Music and the Mind (MIMM). Individuals interested in contributing to our current projects on amplitude envelope, emotion in music, and multi-sensory integration are particularly encouraged to apply. For information on our research, please see www.maplelab.net
Although interest in music is helpful, formal musical training is not a requirement. However, successful students will need a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Computer Science, or another affiliated discipline. Experience with computer programming and statistical analyses will be viewed favorably, but are not required. General information on the graduate program and links to application instructions can be found at www.maplelab.net/grad
; specific questions beyond those addressed on this page should be directed to Dr. Michael Schutz (schutz@xxxxxxxxxxx
). Please include a CV, unofficial transcript, brief writing sample, and indication of citizenship/residency status (i.e. Canadian or non-Canadian) with your inquiry.
The MAPLE Lab is affiliated with the renowned McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind (MIMM), which has nearly completed construction of the LIVE Lab – a new multi-million dollar concert hall/research facility. This one-of-a-kind research center offers an advanced virtual acoustics system, touchpad response systems on every audience seat, motion capture technology, multi-user parallel EEG recording capability, and many other innovative design features.
