Dear all,

A Doctoral Research Fellowship in Sound and Music Computing is available 
at the University of Oslo:

  * Deadline: 04.04.2018
  * Start date: September 2018
  * Duration: 3+1 year
  * Salary: 436-490 900 NOK

The fellowship is connected to the new Nordic Sound and Music Computing 
Network <> (NordicSMC) funded by the 
Nordic Research Council. This network brings together a group of 
internationally leading sound and music computing researchers from 
institutions in five Nordic countries: Aalborg University, Aalto 
University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, University of Iceland, 
and University of Oslo. The network covers the field of sound and music 
from the “soft” to the “hard,” including the arts and humanities, and 
the social and natural sciences, as well as engineering, and involves a 
high level of technological competency.

We invite PhD proposals that focus on sound/music interaction with 
periodic/rhythmic human body motion (walking, running, training, etc.). 
The appointed candidate is expected to carry out observation studies of 
human body motion in real-life settings, using different types of mobile 
motion capture systems (full-body suit and individual trackers). Results 
from the analysis of these observation studies should form the basis for 
the development of prototype systems for using such periodic/rhythmic 
motion in musical interaction.

The appointed candidate will benefit from the combined expertise within 
the NordicSMC network, and is expected to carry out one or more 
short-term scientific missions to the other partners. At UiO, the 
candidate will be affiliated with RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary 
Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion 
<>. This interdisciplinary centre 
focuses on rhythm as a structuring mechanism for the temporal dimensions 
of human life. RITMO researchers span the fields of musicology, 
psychology and informatics, and have access to state-of-the-art 
facilities in sound/video recording, motion capture, eye tracking, 
physiological measurements, various types of brain imaging (EEG, fMRI), 
and rapid prototyping and robotics laboratories.

Qualification requirements

  * A Master's Degree or equivalent in sound and music computing, music
    technology, computer science, or other relevant field. The applicant
    is required to document that the degree corresponds to the profile
    for the post. The Master's Degree must have been obtained by the
    time of application.
  * Experience with development of real-time sound and music systems
    (Max, PD, SuperCollider, or similar)
  * Excellent skills in written and oral English
  * Personal suitability and motivation for the position

Please circulate through your networks and forward to relevant 
candidates. Apologies for cross posting.
