Betreff: Birmingham Fellows

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This is just a reminder about Birmingham’s new programme for post-
doctoral fellowships. These are five year posts, aimed at attracting
world leading researchers, with the idea that fellows who meet their
agreed performance targets will be offered permanent academic posts at
Senior Lecturer or Reader level (in terms of academic rank these are
the UK equivalents of a research returning Professor) at the end of
that term.

There are two possible posts in Music, one in Creative Music
Technology, and one in Ethnomusicology and/or Popular Music. These are
grouped under the broad heading ‘Twentieth Century Music’, but Twenty-
First Century researchers are, of course, welcome as well!

For the Music Tech post, we’re interested in receiving as broad as
possible an array of applicants, including (but not limited to)
researchers interested in sound analysis and synthesis; signal
processing; audio spatialisation and spatial simulation; music
computer informatics; experimental musical interface design; human-
computer interaction for music; gestural control; tangible user
interfaces; programming for audio, including experience with domain-
specific computer music languages such as SuperCollider or Max/MSP;
network audio; and audio recording and production. Experience as a
composer is of course welcome, but the focus of this post is on the
tech side.

For the Ethno/Popular Music post, it’s similarly wide open.

Please forward this message to any potentially interested parties!


The first deadline (for the submission of an online application form,
a 3-page CV and a 500-word research statement) will be 17.00 on
Thursday, 1 September 2011, but the call will remain open until all
the posts are filled.

In case of questions, please write to me at BOTH the email addresses
below (I shall be travelling during August and may not always have
easy internet/email access).

Best wishes,
