  Making the world sound better – acoustic metamaterials for manipulating sound in air and underwater
  Prof A P Hibbins, Prof J R Sambles
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship is part of the UK’s Centre of Doctoral Training in Metamaterials (XM2) based in the Departments of Physics and Engineering on the Streatham Campus in Exeter.
  New metasurfaces for acoustic control - meta-atoms as passive resonant elements to yield highly directional radiation or detection of sound
  Prof A P Hibbins, Prof J R Sambles
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint supervisors. Prof Alastair P Hibbins, Prof J Roy Sambles. External partner. Dr Ben Hodder (QinetiQ). ***. The ability to emit or receive sound with directional dependence is of great relevance to acoustic imaging and navigation applications.
  Effective Sound Design for the Internet of Things - Project ID SOC0006
  Dr I McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sound design for the internet of things can transform the acoustic space in any environment. It can be used as much to switch sounds off as add them.
  Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e.
  I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now: composing music for telematic resources
  Dr J Hails, Dr P Ferguson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Telematic low latency technologies have been explored in relation to performance and recording, but the opportunities opened up for a composer have been comparatively neglected.
  Responding to spaces, places, and community: a portfolio of composition and documentation of praxis
  Dr J Hails, Dr K Burton
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the world slowly emerges from lockdowns and isolation following the COVID19 pandemic, communities and shared spaces that they use to meet will be more important than ever.
  Algebraic Methods in Musical Composition
  Dr W Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Algebraic operations have been used as compositional tools for centuries. For example, the group theoretical operation of translation on the integers can be identified with the musical operation of transposition.
  Auralisation in digital heritage
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computer visualisation is often used in archaeology, history and cultural heritage to render particular scenes or buildings and aims to offer an additional understanding, insight or experience of a past environment, as well as more effective audience engagement.
  Hearing colour and seeing sound - switchable polymer molecular imaging agents for visualizing disease progression
  Dr N Boase
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular imaging aims to use non-invasive techniques to probe and visualize molecules in the body, which can be used to measure biochemical processes and disease progression.
  Smart sensors and spectral techniques in human movement science
  Research Group: Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group
  Dr D Vicinanza, Dr J Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group in collaboration with the Exeter Biomechanics Research Team (ExBiRT), University of Exeter.
  Programmable-Impedance Wind Instruments
  Research Group: Acoustics
  Dr MC Wright
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Matthew Wright. Project description. Many attempts have been made to make electric versions of different wind instruments, in the hope of extending the sound and versatility in the same way that the electric guitar expanded and revolutionised guitar playing.
  Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent developments in low cost VR displays have led to a resurgence of research into binaural 3-D audio. Whilst a good 3-D audio experience can be given using the state of the art technologies, there are still many problems to be solved.
  PhD or Masters’ position in building acoustics and mechanical metamaterials
  Dr A Hall, Dr George Dodd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in metamaterials and their potential to improve people’s living conditions? The Acoustics Research Centre at the University of Auckland is inviting applications from highly motivated students to participate in an exciting new research programme on acoustics and mechanical metamaterials for radically improving sound insulation.
  SAfE-WORK: Situating Audio for Environments With Operator Reactive Knowledge
  Dr M Crabb, Dr C Lim
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The purpose of this Human Computer Interaction PhD project is to improve the safety of workers in high risk environments by examining how Audio Based AR can be used to supplement activities in the workplace.
  Modelling the social determinants of health, at the neighbourhood and individual level
  Prof A Heppenstall, Dr N Lomax
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The conditions in which we are born and live are the key drivers of health and health inequalities. We know that tackling these social determinants of health requires actions across many policy sectors, such as housing, education or employment.
