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: 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@xxxxxxxx). Applications received by Dec 15th will receive a full review (late applications will be accepted, but those received by the 15th will receive first consideration). 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.
