Griffith University: Research Fellow, Creative Change: The Role of Community Music in Addressing Social Inequalities in Australia[]

  • Deadline: 30 September 2021
  • This position presents a unique opportunity for a Research Fellow to contribute towards a ground-breaking research project on music and social inequality in Australia. The Research Fellow will be part of a leading team of researchers working alongside Professor Brydie-Leigh Bartleet on her ARC Future Fellowship, Creative Change: The Role of Community Music in Addressing Social Inequalities in Australia.

  • We are currently looking for a Research Fellow to collaboratively work with the research team on co-designing aspects of the project, supporting the collection, management and analysis of data, and co-producing a suite of research outputs for the project. The role will involve both collaborative and independent research aligned with the priorities of the Fellowship, and provide the opportunity for the Research Fellow to shape their contributions in ways that align with their research strengths, expertise, and creative interests.
  • This Creative Change project aims to investigate the role community music can play in addressing social inequalities in Australia. Social inequalities are on the rise, with the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbating problems of long-term disadvantage in communities across the country. There are growing calls for place-based initiatives that bring together diverse stakeholders and sectors to work collectively with communities on addressing these complex challenges. This research responds to this call by mapping and analysing a range of social outcomes fostered by music making and exploring how these outcomes can enrich current place-based efforts to address social disadvantage. Specifically, it seeks to bring a ‘creative turn’ to these efforts, by examining how music initiatives can leverage the cultural capabilities and creative assets of communities to drive positive social change. The Research Fellow will play a key role in working collaboratively with the team, case study partners, and project stakeholders to achieve these aims.

  • Salary range: Base Salary $98,174 - $116,584 per annum. Salary package includes 17% employer superannuation $114,863 - $136,404 per annum.

  • 1/26: A word of caution: Hong Kong isn't what it was ten, five, or even two years ago. With the imposition of the National Security Law, Hong Kong is now effectively part of Mainland China. To give a few examples off the top of my head of what is happening in Hong Kong in the last few months: all the politicians in the pro-democracy party have been jailed; a pro-democracy newspaper has been shut down and its owner and editors jailed; books have been removed from the public library system; films have been censored or banned; people have been jailed for their internet posts or holding a sign in a window; a national security curriculum requirement has been introduced at the universities; patriotic education has been introduced beginning in kindergarden; the Tiananmen Square vigial has been banned and those who participated jailed; a statue commerating the Tiananmen Massacre at the University of Hong Kong has been taken apart and cartered away (just today); over 100,000 people have fled Hong Kong permanently in the last year, causing, among other things, a doctor shortage at public hospitals; many shows on the public television station have been taken down, replaced with daily messages from the chief executive; editors of major international publications have had their visas revoked; the New York Times and Amnesty International have pulled out of Hong Kong; you can lose your job, even if "tenured" [N.B. There's no real tenure in Hong Kong.] if you say something at odds with the government; plus there is a mandatory 21-day quarantine to enter Hong Kong, including some portion at a government facility and some portion at a local hotel, at your expense, meaning paying to remain in a single hotel room without opening the window and without exiting the room for up to 21 days while undergoing 10 Covid tests

Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics: Postdoctoral Fellowship, Sonic-Social Genre?: Towards Multimodal Computational Music Genre Modelling[]

  • Deadline: 18 April 2022
  • The Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, investigates the attentional, cognitive, and affective mechanisms of aesthetic perception and evaluation.
  • The department of music invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship on the research project: Sonic-Social Genre?: Towards Multimodal Computational Music Genre Modelling.
  • The postdoctoral fellow will work on an interdisciplinary research project focused on new approaches to analysing and modelling music genres located between informatics engineering, musicology, and music anthropology and sociology. The study addresses the lack of an adequate theory of genre in existing approaches to music genre recognition through interdisciplinary collaborations between MIR, musicology, and music anthropology and sociology.
  • The position will be jointly supervised by three PIs: Associate Prof. Bob Sturm (KTH, Stockholm), Prof. Georgina Born (University College London), and Prof. Melanie Wald-Fuhrmann (MPIEA). The research project forms part of the ERC-funded research programme ‘Music and Artificial Intelligence: Building Critical Interdisciplinary Studies’ (or MusAI, 2021-26), directed by Prof. Born. It also relates closely to Associate Prof. Sturm’s ERC-funded research program, ‘Music at the Frontiers of Artificial Creativity and Criticism’ (or MUSAiC, 2020-25 https://musaiclab.wordpress.com) and to research around music aesthetics and genre-based musical tastes at the music department of the MPIEA
  • Together the team will examine in what ways current humanistic approaches to conceptualising genre in music are and are not compatible with current computational models, and will attempt to develop new computational approaches. A central challenge is to find innovative ways to translate the social and cultural aspects of genre computationally while, in contrast to previous approaches, not rendering them ‘external’ to computation and resisting their reduction to quantification.
  • The intended tasks and outcomes of the position, for which the postdoctoral candidate will share responsibility with the PIs, include:
  • An updated survey of current computational approaches around the subject of music genre (see Sturm, “A survey of evaluation in music genre recognition,” in Adaptive Multimedia Retrieval: Semantics, Context, and Adaptation (Nürnberger et al. eds.), vol. LNCS 8382, pp. 29–66, Oct. 2014);
  • A survey of current humanistic research on, and theories of, music genre (see, for example, Brackett, ‘Introduction’ to Categorizing Sound: Genre and Twentieth-Century Popular Music, California, 2016); followed by an attempt to bring them into interdisciplinary dialogue with current computational approaches;
  • On the basis of 1. and 2., focused, in-depth studies of two contrasting musical genres (e.g., Morris dancing, Scandinavian Metal) utilising and expanding upon existing computational and humanistic frameworks, as outlined in the Short Description;
  • Producing conference papers, journal articles, website contributions and software repositories;
  • Organizing several workshops involving other project team members and experts from the MPIEA, MusAI and MUSAiC
  • The successful applicant should have skills and experience in computer science/informatics engineering/Music Information Retrieval and in sociological or anthropological approaches to music. A doctorate is acceptable in either area of competency, but there should also be a track record of work on the other side. Experience of, and interest in developing, interdisciplinary approaches to music research is therefore necessary. Applicants may also have some knowledge of or interest in popular music studies, cultural and media theories applied to music, and/or humanistic theories of genre.
  • We offer an exciting interdisciplinary field of engagement in an international scientific environment. The Institute is located in an attractive location with excellent infrastructure in Frankfurt’s Westend neighborhood. You can expect a modern, well-equipped workplace with flexible working hours (some remote working is possible).
  • The position will begin on October 1, 2022 and is initially limited to 2 years. Salary is paid in accordance with the collective agreement for the public sector (TVöD Bund), according to your qualifications and experience.
  • Your application should include: your detailed CV (including details of your educational background and skills); a cover letter that explains why this position interests you and interdisciplinary credentials should be explained in some detail; copies of relevant degrees and/or certificates; up to two relevant publications.
  • Please send these materials all together in a single PDF file, before April 18, 2022, by e-mail to job@ae.mpg.de using the code “Postdoc Sonic-Social Genre” in the subject line.

University of Amsterdam: Postdoctoral researcher Artistic Research and Contested Heritage[]

  • Deadline: 01 September 2022
  • The ASCA currently has a vacant Postdoc researcher position as part of the broader field Cultural Heritage and Identity. Within this field the focus is on material and immaterial heritage (including digital heritage), and on cultural Heritage and societal changes. The Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA) is one of the five Research Schools within the Amsterdam Institute for Humanities Research.
  • This postdoc will mobilize the methods, theories and practices of Artistic Research for the interdisciplinary research field of Critical Heritage Studies, specifically in the area of contested heritage. The postdoc will primarily contribute to the Artistic Research Research Group (ARRG) at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA). ARRG sees Artistic Research as a new approach to tackling research questions and aims at promoting the exchange of ideas between artists and scholars from a wide range of fields and disciplines (art history, cultural studies/cultural analysis, literary studies, media studies, philosophy, theater studies, musicology). Artistic Research develops a discursive form of producing and communicating research results in parallel with a non-discursive, artistic practice. By bringing academia and the art world together, artistic forms of research change the social status of both and introduce a potential array of practice-oriented methodologies that challenge institutionalized forms of knowledge production.
  • We are looking for a postdoc who will use Artistic Research to reflect critically upon contested heritage, material or immaterial, where artistic research is used to gain a better understanding of what is at stake in present-day debates about contested heritage, as they are conducted in the public sphere, but also in cultural institutions and popular culture. We are particularly interested in projects that would look at the transnational dimensions of such debates and at how these debates hinder or foster societal change by (re)producing representations of the past that feed into particular visions of the future. We expect the postdoc to set up collaborations with societal partners to actively bridge the gap between science/scholarship and art, and to make the results of their research accessible to non-academic publics.
  • Your tasks and responsibilities: conducting research, presenting intermediate research results at workshops and conferences and publishing at least two peer reviewed articles; participating in activities of the research school, department and relevant research priority area(s); co-organising knowledge dissemination activities; optional: contributing to teaching courses.
  • Your experience and profile:
  • a PhD in Artistic Research or a related area in the humanities, with a focus on (contested) heritage, whose work connects to one or more of the humanities fields represented in ASCA (literary studies, media studies, philosophy, cultural studies/cultural analysis, musicology, art history, theater studies, European studies);
  • excellent research skills demonstrated by a track record of publishing in high-ranking journals and/or with leading presses or a demonstrable capacity to develop such a record;
  • a strong cooperative attitude and willingness to engage in collaborative, interdisciplinary research;
  • enthusiasm for communicating academic research to non-academic audiences;
  • excellent command of English.
  • The Postdoc researcher will be appointed at one of the Departments of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam, in accordance with their background and expertise, and will conduct research in ASCA. The employment contract will be for one year. Contingent on a positive performance evaluation the contract will be extended with one year. The employment contract is for 30,4-38 hours a week. Preferred starting date is 01 October 2022.
  • The gross monthly salary, based on 38 hours per week and relevant experience, ranges between € 3,974 to € 5,439.

University of Leeds: Post-Doctoral Research Fellow(s), Music Culture in the Age of Streaming, x3 FILLED: Raquel Campos, London South Bank University 2019 and ??[]

  • Deadline: 14 December 2021
  • The School of Media and Communication wishes to recruit three fixed-term Post-Doctoral Research Fellows working full-time from 1 June 2022 to 31 May 2026. You will join Music Culture in the Age of Streaming (MUSICSTREAM), a research project funded by an Advanced Research Grant from the European Research Council, awarded to Professor David Hesmondhalgh. The project runs from December 2021 to December 2026.
  • Hundreds of millions of people across the world now experience music via ‘streaming services’, which offer on-demand access, by means of internet or mobile telephony, to vast catalogues of music, either ‘free’ (advertising-supported) or via subscription. A controversial but poorly-understood new system of music production, distribution and consumption has developed around such services, but until now there has been a lack of sustained, integrated analysis of this system, the considerable international variations within it, and its implications for musical culture.
  • MUSICSTREAM provides such analysis, focusing on the UK and China, but also bringing together research from across the world via symposia and collaborative publication, assisted by an international advisory board. There is a strong emphasis on international variation in the project.
  • The project therefore offers an ambitious empirical and theoretical analysis that will also contribute to understanding how culture, political economy and technology interact in the digital era. Questions of power and identity concerning race, ethnicity, gender, class, age, sexuality and able-bodiedness are expected to figure strongly across the research.
  • Working with the Principal Investigator, Professor David Hesmondhalgh, and Co-Investigator Dr Qu Shuwen (Jinan University, China), you will carry out research on music culture in the age of streaming. You will be a key member of the research team with the chance to generate significant knowledge at the intersection of the social sciences and humanities. You will provide research support to the project as needed, and you will also receive significant mentoring from a variety of individual and institutional sources.
  • Position 1: Platforms, Industry, Music Creators, Policy: https://jobs.leeds.ac.uk/AHCMC1066
  • Position 2: Users, Experiences, Emotions, Pleasures: https://jobs.leeds.ac.uk/AHCMC1067
  • Position 3: China: https://jobs.leeds.ac.uk/AHCMC1068
  • As Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, you will have: A first degree and PhD in Media and Communication Studies, Sociology, Music, or a closely related field. Your PhD thesis must have been submitted for examination by the time you apply for you to be considered eligible for the role, i.e. you can apply while awaiting your viva voce exam.
  • We anticipate that interviews will be held by video conferencing software during the week commencing 10 January.

University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3/CNRS: Postdoc – Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice (ANR Staccato)[]

  • Deadline: 09 August 2021
  • The STACCATO project (ANR-19-CE38-0008-05, Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice) is an interdisciplinary project falling within the themes of vibrotactile perception and digital and electroacoustic tools allowing its implementation. More precisely, the objectives of the project are 1) to explore the vibrotactile modality as sensory feedback for the perception of the sound event and the gestural control of instrumental interfaces in musical practice with people having or not sensory impairment, 2) to develop a system of vibrotactile signs and analyze its use in context for communication between musicians in collective musical playing situations, 3) to analyze in a comparative manner the functions of the vibrotactile modality for sensory feedback and for codified communication. The originality of the project lies in its aim to combine a technological approach (acoustics, engineering) and a psychological approach to the sensory experience. Another is to bring together teams with complementary skills and expertise in psychology, mechanics and acoustics, music, electroacoustics, digital technologies, signal processing, linguistics and speech analysis (LAM, Lutheries-Acoustique-Musique, UMR 7190, Institut d'Alembert, Sorbonne Université ; Institut de Recherche en Musicologie, IReMus, UMR 3226, Sorbonne Université ; Unité Transversale de Recherche Psychogenèse et Psychopathologie, UTRPP, UR 4403, Université Sorbonne Paris Nord ; ISEN d'Électronique, de Microélectronique et de Nanotechnologie, IEMN, UMR 8520 Lille ; Praxiling, UMR 5267, Université Montpellier 3).
  • This research will be carried out with musicians and non-musicians (with and without sensory impairment). It consists of carrying out semi-structured individual interviews before and after two sessions of individual experimentation with the vibrotactile object. In parallel, two collective experiments with the vibrotactile object will be organized.
  • The mission of the recruited person will consist of: (1) helping to develop the protocol for collective experiments, (2) passing this protocol on to the participants and collecting the audio and video data during the experiment, (3) transcribe the data collected during the completion of this protocol using dedicated software (Praat, Clan, Elan), (4) annotate this data according to the different categories of analysis that will have been determined within the framework of the Staccato project, 5) analyze these data at the quantitative and qualitative levels and 6) disseminate and publish the results of these analyzes in collaboration with the other members of the ANR STACCATO.
  • Knowledge
  • Knowledge in the field of linguistics and language data analysis
  • Experience with language data transcription and processing software (e.g. Praat, CLAN, ELAN)
  • Knowledge in the field of music and musicology
  • Experience in setting up experimental studies
  • The candidate must be strongly motivated by work in an interdisciplinary field relating both to the collection of language data in a context of shared musical practice and in the design and implementation of experimental devices.
  • The person recruited will be attached to the Praxiling Laboratory (UMR CNRS 5267) located at the University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3. Praxiling is a research laboratory in language sciences under the double supervision of the CNRS and the University Paul Valéry, Montpellier 3 which is made up of 49 members. The research carried out within the unit is mainly in discourse analysis, these being considered in their concrete conditions of production, that is to say constructed by subjects in interaction and linked to situated practices ("Praxis"). This conception of discourse is the basis of the analysis of linguistic functions and dynamics, developed by the Praxiling unit. Thus, the Praxiling laboratory is made up of linguists, phoneticians and anthropologists whose work is based, for the most part, on the exploitation of written and oral corpora exploited with the help of digital tools. More specifically, the recruited person will work on the research themes of ANR STACCATO (project ANR-19-CE38-0008-05; acronym: STACCATO; title: Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice) whose scientific coordinator is Hughes Genevois (LAM, UMR 7190, Institut d'Alembert, Sorbonne University) and the local coordinator for Praxiling Christelle Dodane (MCF HDR in phonetics).

GENERAL DISCUSSION[]

Musicology/Ethnomusicology 2021-22 Wiki Moderator: 5120j (5120janon@gmail.com)

  • A few comments from 5120j:
  • 1. My rule of thumb for deciding which jobs to post is: "COULD an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" Not the more narrow question "WILL an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" So, this means I will post more general "humanities" jobs, and positions (mostly at small schools) looking for someone to teach music history/appreciation but also direct an ensemble/teach applied lessons/etc. (If the most important part of the job seems to be the ensemble directing/applied lessons and music history/appreciation is an add-on, I don't post it.)
  • 2. I post almost the entire text of the job ad (except in the case of part-time/adjunct jobs) so that if any changes are made later, they can be noticed and noted. The ads also usually disappear from the institution's website after the application deadline has passed, so it's helpful to preserve them here. And it's very instructive to see how the winning candidate did and didn't fit the job as it was advertised. I do usually excise the description of the hiring school/department/facilities and the EOE boilerplate, but I leave the rest of it as-is. Removing anything more feels like editorializing on my part.
  • 4. My anon email is 5120janon at gmail, and I welcome comments and questions about the wiki and its moderation this year. I'm not a musicologist of any type and am not (and will not be) on the market myself, but I have a professional interest in the ethno/musicology job market and have been moderating the wiki for going on seven years.
