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: http://www.aim.qmul.ac.uk/about/

Who can apply?

We are on the lookout for the best and brightest 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.
  • Formal music training is desirable, but not a prerequisite.

Funding

We have a number of fully-funded 4-year PhD studentships available for students starting in September 2022 which will cover the cost of tuition fees and will provide an annual tax-free stipend (£17,609 in 2021/22). The CDT will also provide funding for conference travel, equipment, and for attending other CDT-related events. The funding is for UK resident and International students.
