Postdoc in Cognitive and Computational Musicology

The postdoctoral researcher will take part in a collaborative research project cutting across the boundaries between music cognition and computer science. The project named COGITCH (COgnition Guided Interoperability beTween Collections of musical Heritage) was recently funded by NWO-CATCH and is an collaboration of the Utrecht University, University of Amsterdam, The Meertens Institute, Netherlands Public Broadcasting, and Sound & Vision. It aims to develop generic techniques for relating music from different Dutch music collections. In developing retrieval methods, we will take a top-down approach, working from musical knowledge and cognitive psychology towards the identification and processing of audio features. On-line annotations provided by listeners will support establishing the relationships between ~hooks~ (perceptually salient musical patterns) and the music.

Deadline for applications: 16 October 2011. For more information, see http://cf.hum.uva.nl/mmm/jobs.html or contact prof. dr. Henkjan Honing at .
