The Department of Computational Perception <> at the 
Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria
is happy to announce one PhD opening for the project
"Personalized Music Retrieval via Music Content, Music Context, and User 
Context" <>

We are looking for scientists to work in this three-year-research-project.

For this project, we are seeking creative and motivated researchers with 
a strong
background and a completed Master's degree in

    - user modeling, profiling, and adaptation / personalization / 
pervasive computing
    - and/or (Web) information extraction / retrieval
    - and/or machine learning / pattern recognition
    - and/or (music) information retrieval and extraction / user interfaces

Preference will be given to candidates who combine expertise in several 
fields mentioned
above and who already have a record of research involving one or more of 
the above areas.

Although not compulsory, a certain appeal to music is a plus. :-)

Further important requirements are creativity, motivation, excellent 
skills in English,
and interest in scientific work.
The successful applicants will be given a lot of freedom in pursuing 
their research,
within the scope of the project. They will be allowed to work in a 
creative environment
within an excellent research team. Moreover, we offer flexible working 
times and the
opportunity to present research results in an international context.

The salary will be about EUR 26,000 per year (pre-tax). Accepted 
applicants will further
have the opportunity to enrol in a Ph.D. program in Computer Science at the
Johannes Kepler University, Linz.

Upon acceptance, the employment may start as soon as possible 
(preferably January 2011).

Please send your application including full CV, list of publications, 
one or two substantial
and related publication(s) if available, and any other material you
