PhD student position in theoretical foundations of computational music, Bordeaux, FRANCE


A PhD position will be available at LaBRI, Bordeaux University, in

                    theoretical foundation of computational music.

With a 3 years duration, the PhD is expected to start by the end of summer 2012.

The PhD student will conduct his research in one of the following fields:

* algebraic and automata theory for interactive music modeling and musical performance,

* real-time hierarchical and interactive system architecture for computer assisted musical 
performance.

This research will be integrated in the french national ANR project INEDIT
(2012-2016) that include LaBRI (Bordeaux), IRCAM (Paris) and GRAME (Lyon).

As the aim of INEDIT project is, in particular, to bridge the gap between formal methods and 
computational music, the PhD student must have a strong background in theoretical foundation of 
formal methods for computer science. This includes in particular automata theory, logic (model or 
proof theory), game theory, algebraic theory of languages, or contraints programming.

A taste for music, whatever style or origin, will be welcome.

The research will be conducted in both the Formal Methods team and the Image and Sound team at 
LaBRI (www.labri.fr) with a close collaboration with composers at SCRIME (scrime.labri.fr).
