A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available to pursue research in the field of computer music within Durham University’s Music Department. The position is associated with the project ‘MIMIC: Listening to the Future, Learning through Machines: A New Artificial Intelligence Platform for Music Computing’, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and will see the creation of new web browser based resources for computer musicians.

The project is a joint venture between Durham, Goldsmiths and Sussex, and would involve workshops and group meetings at the three universities, as well as international conference activity. The successful applicant will work directly with Nick Collins, and will be expected to take an active role in the creation of a new javascript machine listening library and its deployment in demonstration applications. The post-holder will be expected to contribute to the evaluation and the dissemination of the research, and will have opportunities to gain experience in teaching and supervision.
