Postdoctoral Position in Analysis of Musician' Movements

A 1-year postdoctoral position (renewable for a second year) is available
in the labs of Profs. Marcelo M. Wanderley (http://www.idmil.org/) and
Caroline Palmer (http://www.mcgill.ca/spl/), McGill University, Montreal.

programming skills is necessary. Some experience with time series analysis
methods is desired.

Interested applicants are welcome to contact Marcelo Wanderley in
