Fellowship opportunities for C4DM, Queen Mary University of London

Dear List,

[Apologies for cross-posting. Please pass on to anyone who may be interested.]

To help people who would like to carry out postdoctoral research work here 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:

Those currently open are summarized below.

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/
