PhD opportunities at Sonic Arts Research Centre, QUB

Interested in music and fancy doing a PhD at Queen’s? The Sonic Arts Research Centre are accepting applications for entry in the 2011/12 academic year until 1 March 2011 in the fields of Musicology, Composition & Creative Practice, Sonic Arts (info here). You will also get to work in one of coolest buildings in Belfast, SARC’s awesome Sonic Lab (specs) that’s pictured above.

If you’ve already started a PhD in that area elsewhere (and are maybe experiencing Sound Lab jealousy), don’t feel left out. The following call may also be of interest.
