Postdoctoral position in cognitive and computational musicology,THE NETHERLANDS

Postdoc in Cognitive and Computational Musicology Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

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?T (perceptually salient 
musical patterns) and the music.

Deadline for applications: 16 October 2011. For more information, see or contact prof. dr. Henkjan Honing at
