Studentships Available:
  Two PhD studentships are available in a collaborative project between
the Sonic Art Research Centre and the Virtual Engineering Centre.

  Currently, SARC is embarking on a collaborative project entitled
"Multi-Modal Interfaces for Internet Access" with the Virtual
Engineering Centre (VEC). This project aims to improve Internet
navigation for partially sighted users. To achieve this aim, audio and
haptic (touch) approaches to web site navigation and feedback will be
researched.

- Internet Navigation with Audio Feedback
  Applicants should have a good Honours degree (2:1 or higher) in one of
Computer Science, Music Technology, Engineering, Physics or related
discipline. Applicants should be familiar with C++/Java, Javascript,
HTML/XML and have experience with web development. An interest in music
and sound design will also be of benefit.

- Internet Navigation with Haptic Feedback
  Applicants should have a good Honours degree (2:1 or higher) in one of
Computer Science, Engineering, Physics or related discipline.
Applicants should be familiar with C++/Java, Javascript, HTML/XML and
have experience with web development. An interest in user interface
design will also be of benefit.

  The stipend for the successful applicants is £10,500 (2004-05) per
annum plus payment of University fees.

  Further details and application forms are available from Mrs Pearl
Young (pearl.young@qub.ac.uk).

  The closing date for applications is Wednesday 30 June 2004 at 5pm.
Suitable applicants should be available for interview in the middle of
July.

  The studentships will ideally commence in August 2004.

  This project is supported by Eduserv.
