PhD Studentship Positions

We have two PhD studentships, available within the Interactive Media
Group. Both positions are for three years and are funded by the HEA
under a project entitled "Media Technology". The aim of the project is
to develop a novel framework for media performance using integrated
sensor systems, learning and control. It involves the Interaction Design
Centre and the Centre for Computational Musicology and Computer Music in
the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at Limerick.
The Media Group has links with Electronics, Material Sciences and the
Irish World Music Centre and is involved MSc programs in Music
Technology and Interactive Media. The department of CSIS is currently
moving into purpose built accommodation, including research labs, studio
and performance spaces.

The project addresses technical, and performance issues in interactive
performance systems, including control of creative processes through
human gesture, e.g. dance. This is focussed on the LiteFoot dance floor
with embedded proximity sensors. Details can be found at

The studentships are available for 3 years and will include fees, a
grant of 6,000 pounds per annum and travel costs for conferences and

The University of Limerick is striving towards equal opportunities.
