The PhD Brain-Computer Music Interface programme is delivered through the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) in collaboration with the Brain Research & Imaging Centre (BRIC).
ICCMR is well-known for championing research in this field and BRIC is the most advanced multi-modal brain imaging facility in the South West of the United Kingdom. Students will have access to ICCMR and BRICS research laboratories, and the opportunity to work with leading experts in music technology, artificial intelligence and neuroscience.
The University of Plymouth is a world pioneer of the field of Brain-Computer Music Interfacing (BCMI). It offers unparalleled support for research in this truly interdisciplinary field, combining music, electronic engineering, neuroscience and brain imaging. This full- or part-time doctoral programme is suitable for candidates interested in contributing to the advancement of BCMI, while honing their research and scientific skills through experiments and development of practical systems. You will be guided by a supervisory team of academic experts in ICCMR and BRIC, under the direction of a personal Director of Studies. You will be expected to fully engage with skills development and training and to present your research in a range of scholarly and scientific contexts. Your PhD will be assessed via submission of a written thesis of approximately 80,000 words.
Applicants are expected to have either a good 2:1 or first class honours undergraduate degree, as well as completed a masters level qualification on a relevant topic, including (but not limited to) music technology, engineering, computer science, psychology or neuroscience. In exceptional cases, candidates with alternative qualification(s) and/or substantial professional experience may qualify.
