at the

Department of Computational Perception,
Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria

We are pleased to announce several open pre- and post-doctoral research positions at the Department of Computational Perception of the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. We are looking for scientists to work in a three-year research project entitled

"Computational Performance Style Analysis from Audio Recordings"

A short description of the project can be found at

For this strongly interdisciplinary project, we are looking for creative and motivated pre- or post-doctoral researchers with a strong background (and a completed degree) in

    * machine learning / pattern recognition / general AI
    * or (audio) signal processing and pattern analysis
    * or systematic or cognitive musicology or a related field

Preference will be given to candidates who combine expertise in
both music and computing and who already have a record of
interdisciplinary research involving one or more of the above
fields. Equally important (though not easily measurable) are
creativity and the ability and motivation to contribute innovative
ideas to an exciting research project; the researchers will be
given a lot of freedom in defining and and pursuing their research
and thus shaping the project.

The salary will be in the area of EUR 41.000,- per year (before
taxes) for PostDocs and EUR 24.000,- for pre-doctoral researchers.
Pre-Docs will have the opportunity to enrol in a PhD program in
computer science at the University of Linz.
The positions are open for a period of three years.

Please send your application (with CV, publications list, one or
two substantial and pertinent publications, and any other material
you consider interesting (e.g., photographs, link to home page,
etc.) via e-mail to
