PhD Studentship in Musicology/Analysis: Tracking the Creative Process
The University of Huddersfield invites applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship in the field of musicology and analysis to join the ‘Fluid Corpus Manipulation’ team for three and a half years. The project is funded by the European Research Council, through its prestigious Consolidator Grants programme.
The successful candidate will work on an ethnographic and analytic project that tracks and documents the creative process of six to ten digitally fluent composers as they integrate a new toolset into their techno-creative practice. This research will be supervised by Dr Frédéric Dufeu and Dr Owen Green.
The ideal PhD candidate is an empirically-inclined (ethno)musicologist, interested in:
– Tracking creative processes in contemporary musical practices
– Relationships between technology and creativity
– Electronic and computer music
