Here is the text version of the job ad at McMaster University for a
position in the School of the Arts.
Music Cognitive Science
The School of the Arts at McMaster University is seeking an
outstanding individual for a tenure-track position at the Assistant
Professor rank in the area of Music Cognition. Candidates must have a
doctoral degree in Music, Psychology, or a related discipline, and
have a strong interdisciplinary research program in the Cognitive
Science of Music with an interest in educational applications.
University-level training and a deep understanding in both music and
psychology is essential.
The candidate will be expected to take a leadership role in the
McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind (http://mimm.mcmaster.ca/)
and in coordinating the offerings of the Music Program with this new
initiative. The Institute involves collaborations between the Faculty
of Humanities and the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Social
Science, and Health Science, with the goal of promoting
multidisciplinary research in the scientific study of music. The
ideal candidate's interests and strengths will both complement and
connect existing strengths at McMaster in Music, Music Cognition,
Perception, Neuroscience and Linguistic Cognitive Science.
In addition to demonstrating accomplishment and future potential in
research and publication, the candidate will be expected to teach
core undergraduate music courses as well as courses associated with
the forthcoming new concentration in the Cognitive Science of Music,
and to be instrumental in setting up an anticipated graduate program
in the cognitive science of music and music education.
McMaster is a research-intensive university, with rich traditions in
the areas of Music (with particular strengths in education, theory,

neuroscience and evolutionary psychology). McMaster has excellent
facilities for behavioural, computational and neuroimaging research.
