AIM Programme structure
Our Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) offers a four-year training programme where students will carry out a PhD in the intersection of AI and music, supported by taught specialist modules, industrial placements, and skills training. Find out more about the programme structure at: www.aim.qmul.ac.uk/about.
Who can apply?
We are on the lookout for students interested in the intersection of music/audio technology and AI. Successful applicants will have the following profile:
- Hold or be completing a Masters degree at distinction or first class level, or equivalent, in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Music/Audio Technology, Physics, Mathematics, or Psychology. We also accept applicants holding or completing a Masters degree at distinction or first class level, or equivalent, in Music Performance/Composition or Musicology, provided that the applicant has a suitable technical background to undertake a PhD in AI and Music.
- Programming skills are strongly desirable; however, we do not consider this to be an essential criterion if candidates have complementary strengths.
- Music training (any of performance, production, composition or theory) is desirable but not a prerequisite.
For the above PhD topic, we are offering a scholarship to both ordinarily resident in the UK and international students.
This is a fully-funded 4-year PhD studentship with 5 cohorts starting in September 2019-20-21-22 and 2023 which will cover the cost of tuition fees and will provide an annual tax-free stipend of 19,668 (in 2022-23 academic year). The CDT will also provide funding for conference travel, equipment, and for attending other CDT-related events.
