Fellowship opportunities for C4DM, Queen Mary University of London

Dear List,

To follow up Isabel's message about open EU Fellowships, at the Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) at Queen Mary University of London, we have gathered together some information about possible relevant postdoctoral fellowship schemes at:

While the focus of these are for people who would like to carry out postdoctoral research work at C4DM, the schemes may also be of more general interest to the wider community. The schemes on our list are focussed on these relevant to fellowships to undertake in the UK, but include the EU Marie Curie schemes for people looking to move countries.

The fellowships currently open are summarized below. All have a deadline in August, but of course it is always a good idea to start these things early to avoid vacation times!

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please FIRST check the scheme details for eligibility information to make sure you are eligible for that scheme. For example, some schemes are only valid for researchers from certain countries (e.g. non-UK citizens).

These schemes are often quite competitive, so you will need to write a strong proposal. You will need to be prepared to write most of the proposal yourself, although we will be able to help with information about C4DM as the host for your research.

An overview of our research is at: www.elec.qmul.ac.uk/digitalmusic/
