The Faculty of Music is seeking two Postdoctoral Research Associates to work with Dr Matthew Machin-Autenrieth on the ERC-funded project ‘Past and Present Musical Encounters across the Strait of Gibraltar’.

The project explores how a collective European-North African cultural memory has been articulated through music for different sociopolitical ends in colonial and postcolonial contexts. Music has been employed as a means of social control and representation during French and Spanish colonialism in North Africa in the twentieth century, and as a model for multiculturalism and cultural diplomacy among North African communities in Europe today. The project analyses how modern-day practices of musical exchange in the region are shaped by discourses and networks formed during colonialism. It brings together different geographical, linguistic and musical specialisms, leading towards an integrated understanding of musical exchange in the region.

Applicants will have a Ph.D. in music or related fields (e.g. anthropology, cultural studies/history, sociology) and a developing profile of publications. They will be able to manage a wide range of activities and to exercise judgment regarding the prioritising of workload. They will be highly attentive to detail and capable of resolving sophisticated conceptual problems relevant to the project. They will be able to work independently and to communicate effectively with a wide range of individuals.
