PhD in Sonic Arts

A PhD in Sonic Arts offers the opportunity for cross-disciplinary research reflecting the interests of members of the Sonic Arts Research Centre and its staff.  In addition to all studio and technical facilities at SARC, PhD students have access to a dedicated lab with personal computers, a motion capture facility and a small prototyping workshop.  The PhD lab is the meeting point for students undertaking research in a variety of disciplines and stimulates exchange of ideas.  

Research links with other departments at Queen's such as Anthropology, Film Studies, psychology  and Electronic Engineering complement the expertise  of SARC's staff.  A regular postgraduate research forum provides the opportunity for students to present and discuss work in progress while the bi-weekly concert and seminar series hosted by the centre brings international artists and speakers to SARC to present their work. 

Prospective Ph.D. students are advised to contact a member of staff working in their area of interest before submitting an application.  For more information on current research at SARC, please visit the research pages of the SARC site
