    HP are pleased to announce a PhD studentship resulting from their
    ongoing research partnership. One award is available to undertake PhD
    study in the area of Interactive Soundscape Design. The overall goal
    of this work is to explore and better understand sound design and
    perception in the context of Mediascape design and delivery
    (www.mobilebristol.com). The award covers university fees for three
    years as well as a student stipend of £12,300 in the first year,
    rising to £12,900 in the third year. The award also includes a small
    amount of funding for travel to conferences and workshops related to
    the field of research. The scholarship is available to Home, EU and
    International applicants.
    Applicants for the post should have or expect to obtain, a minimum of
    a 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in music technology, sonic arts
    or related discipline. This studentship should appeal to students
    with a good understanding of acoustics, aural perception and some
    experience of sound design, as well as having a strong interest in
    pervasive computing and locative media.
