Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Artificial Intelligence and Music

University of Plymouth,
Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research
 
Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Artificial Intelligence and Music
 
Applications are invited for a 3-year (36 months) Research Fellow post in the Faculty of Technology at the University of Plymouth, UK, commencing on 01 July 2007 (provisional date; negotiable). 
 
The project is aimed at the development of models and tools for the application of probabilistic machine learning techniques to the analysis of music and brain imaging data on music cognition. The underlying theme of the project is the learning of patterns linking different data arising simultaneously from the same piece of music. The project will advance our understanding of the relationship between musical structure, performance and experience.
 
The main task for this post is to develop a system for musical composition based on predictions informed by the EEG and fMRI (using the new machine learning tools developed by the team working in the project). Candidates for this post are expected to have a background linking Artificial Intelligence and Music, especially in the fields combining machine learning and computer-aided or algorithmic composition. Candidates should demonstrate solid experience (technical and theoretical) in development and implementation of AI-based algorithmic composition systems, including real-time interactive music systems.
