Multiple PhD Studentships: Application of Graphics and computational fabrication techniques for novel 3D printed acoustic devices (2018)
Multiple PhD studentships in computational fabrication and graphics are available in the Interact Lab of the University of Sussex.
Type of award
Multiple PhD studentships in computational fabrication and graphics are available in the Interact Lab of the University of Sussex from October 2018. The project will be supervised by Sriram Subramanian (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=CO9UQcsAAAAJ&hl=en).
Our group is interested in exploring the use of 3D printed structures to shape and sculpt sound input sound fields. These 3D printed structures are often called metamaterials and can be used to create acoustic lenses and mirrors. Using these structures, we can create novel haptic devices, speakers and many new interactive experiences.
This project will involve using computer graphics techniques to model and analyse these structures to make structures that are efficient and effective in manipulating input sound fields. This project will give you the opportunity to collaborate in a novel field of cutting edge research in a highly applied and fast moving area. The successful candidate will engage with many ongoing research collaborators in UK, Denmark, Sweden and USA. In addition to undertaking high quality research and publishing in top graphics and HCI conferences/ journals, the group also creates significant impact by developing technology that is integrated into different industry products.
The School of Computing, Creative Technologies and Engineering (SCCTE) is offering three full-time PhD studentships. The awards cover the standard UK stipend (£14,553 in 2017/18; pro-rata into 12 monthly payments and exempt from UK Income Tax and National Insurance) and tuition fees (EU/UK fees only).
The PhD studentships include a range of exciting research projects and the appointed candidates will join the SCCTE. Academics within the School conduct research in a broad range of topics under four main groupings; Data Sciences, Cyber and Physical Security, Digital Health and Assistive Technologies and Information management.
The School comprises 70 academics and a growing number of researchers, currently standing at 45 PhD candidates.
We are seeking highly-motivated and enthusiastic students who will fully engage in the dynamic and vibrant research environment in the SCCTE.

The European Master’s Course in Embedded Computing Systems (EMECS) is designed to educate Bachelor graduates from Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science as well as graduates from related disciplines to become experts in the field of Embedded Computing Systems. The participating institutions are:
University of Kaiserslautern (TUK), Kaiserslautern, Germany Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering
Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway Faculty of Information Technology Mathematics and Electrical Engineering
University of Southampton (UoS), Southampton, United Kingdom School of Electronics and Computer Science
EMECS is a two-years Master`s course (120 ECTS credits) that is pursued at two out of the three participating institutions. Students will spend one year at each of the selected universities and will receive a joint degree from the respective institutions. The language of instruction is English. Students participating in this program will be trained in three major areas:
Hardware Architectures of Embedded Systems
The applicant must hold at least a B.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or a related programme. At the time of application preliminary transcripts are accepted.
The National University of Singapore [NUS] offers 40 scholarships each year to nationals of ASEAN* member countries to take full-time course-work graduate degrees at NUS. Singapore citizens and permanent residents are ineligible. These awards, known as the NUS Graduate Scholarship for ASEAN nationals [NUS GSA], are financed by the People of Singapore and the University. The scholar has no obligation or bond to NUS or Singapore but is expected to complete the graduate degree and return to the home country.
*(ASEAN comprises the 10 nations of South East Asia – Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.)
The NUS GSA is only for full-time course-work graduate degrees** conducted at NUS and designated for the scholarship . Candidates receiving other awards will be disqualified from the NUS GSA.
**(The NUS GSA is not for Research or Doctorate [Ph.D.] programmes. The NUS Research Scholarship is available for these programmes.
Application for the NUS GSA
Application for the NUS GSA is decentralized to each NUS Faculty/ School and integrated into the application for each designated graduate degree. Therefore, the application period and due date for the designated graduate degree is applicable to the NUS GSA. There are, however, different application periods and due dates for each designated graduate degree.
Candidates should contact the Administrator of the respective NUS Faculty/School for more information. Contacts of the Administrators at the NUS Faculties/Schools are given in these web pages.
The Creative Technology Research Group(CTRG) at the School of Design, Engineering & Computing (DEC), Bournemouth University (BU), is pleased to invite applications for a PhD studentship with full financial support.
The Studentship offers a maintenance grant of £13,400 per annum and waiver of the full-time research student fee. The post will be awarded on a full-time basis for a period of 36 months. The studentship will focus on the area of Networked Music and Audio Interactions.
The discipline of Network music performance (NMP) allowing performers, studio musicians and producers to connect over high-speed networks and create audio and video content collaboratively is now a reality. Software tools and strategies developed over the last few years have led to various global events, projects and publications.
This has allowed the NMP research community to develop a new musical paradigm known as network music, where music becomes network-centric and cannot be performed outside of a networked situation. Based on this groundwork, the need to develop and implement interactive multimodal applications to further develop network music has never been greater.
Applicants will preferably have a good first degree (first or upper-second class) and/or Masters degree in music technology or related discipline such as computer science ; or a Bachelor degree with equivalent research or industry working experience. The ideal candidate will show an interest in developing novel multimodal tools and strategies focusing on high-quality audio, networked audio monitoring, visualization, synchronous interactions and high-quality video.
