Doctoral Research Fellowships in Music Technology and/or Music Production - Two Positions

Two PhD Research Fellowships (SKO 1017) in Music Technology and/or Music Production are now available at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo (IMV).

The Department of Musicology has established a vibrant and leading international research profile in popular music studies and cognitive musicology, with particular strengths in audiovisual analysis, musical sound/rhythm analysis, musical embodiment, and interactive music technologies.

Applications are invited from candidates interested in contributing to this rich, interdisciplinary field, where the research focus falls on music technology and/or music production. The successful candidates will be expected to make use of qualitative/descriptive and quantitative/technology-assisted methods. Furthermore, it is expected that they utilise the department's world-class studio/lab facilities in their projects, which include a ProTools recording studio, a 5.1 mixing suite, and a motion capture lab with a 60-channel sound diffusion system (see for details).
