Prospective graduate students:
The lab currently has openings for MSc/PhD students interested in pursuing advanced study in music perception/cognition within the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB). A background in music is helpful, but formal musical training is not a requirement. However, interested students will need a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Computer Science, or another affiliated discipline. Experience in computer programming will be viewed favorably, but is not a requirement. Canadian citizens are particularly encouraged to apply. Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Schutz. Applications received by Dec 15th will receive a full review (late applications will be accepted, but those received on time will receive first consideration).
Alternatively, students interested in connections between the cognitive science of language and music can apply to work in the lab by enrolling in McMaster’s new and innovative graduate program in the Cognitive Science of Language.
Please note that the School of the Arts does not offer a graduate program at this time (although we are discussing plans for a future program focused on music cognition).
