COGNITIVE ENGINEERING, SONIFICATION, AND AUDITORY ATTENTION PHD SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia The Cognitive Engineering Research Group (CERG) at The University of Queensland is Australia's leading university-based research group in the area of cognitive engineering. We invite applications from suitable candidates wishing to complete PhD research in cognitive engineering, human factors, or engineering psychology. We have several funded projects in sonification and auditory attention as applied to monitoring and control of real-time systems, which complement our long-standing interest in visual display design for such systems. We seek PhD candidates with interests in applications of sonification and auditory attention. See for further details of our activities and for how to apply and for PhD and scholarship application forms to download. Applications for PhD places and applications for scholarships to support PhD studies must be made separately. If you are applying from overseas, please be aware that the academic year in Australia runs from March to November. Please always talk with potential supervisors before making an application. As noted above, supervisors are available within the CERG group (see our website). In addition, PhD students associated with CERG may wish to have shared supervision with UQ faculty members in other faculties, centres, or schools. Applications for PhD places in cognitive engineering can be made through either of two schools principally involved in the cognitive engineering initiative (other schools may be appropriate also).

About The University of Queensland and the Key Centre ======================================== The University of Queensland is one of Australia's top research universities (in the so-called Group of Eight) as well as a member of the international Universitas 21 consortium. The Queensland state government is a strong backer of university research, with its Smart State initiative and various large-scale biotechnology initiatives. The University of Queensland is in the city of Brisbane, in a picturesque location on the Brisbane River. Located in southern Queensland, Brisbane enjoys a warm, sunny climate. The city is the gateway to such attractions such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Gold Coast. The ARC Key Centre for Human Factors was founded in 1999 through a grant from the Australian Research Council. The Key Centre is a national consortium of university-based human factors laboratories or "nodes". University of Queensland is the headquarters of the centre and includes two nodes: (a) the Centre for Human Factors and Applied Cognitive Psychology and (b) the Perception and Motor Systems Laboratory within UQ's Department of Human Movement Studies. The University of Queensland therefore provides a unique vantage point for the student wishing not only to pursue PhD research in cognitive engineering, but also to be exposed to a wide variety of human factors issues. Moreover, in Semester 2 2002 the centre initiates a suite of postgraduate courses in human factors to be taken by online distance education. =================================================== Professor Penelope Sanderson ARC Key Centre for Human Factors and Applied Cognitive Psychology McElwain Building University of Queensland, QLD 4072 Australia Tel: +61 (0)7 3365-6778 or -6076 Fax: +61 (0)7 3365-6171 Mobile: +61 (0)407 107 707 Email: psanderson(at) WWW: WWW: ===================================================
