The post-doctoral Music Cognition Fellowship plan at The Ohio State University is designed to offer advanced research training in music perception and cognition. Two post-doctoral fellowships are awarded annually, one in psychology and one in music. The fellowship is designed to further a candidate's training in research concerned with a variety of aspects of music cognition (perception, performance, general modeling, etc.). This award is part of a larger program to enhance the study of music cognition at The Ohio State University. ELIGIBILITY: Individuals who have held the doctorate for no more than seven years, and who will possess the doctorate before the first day of the post-doctoral fellowship tenure, are eligible to apply. Applications from individuals whose primary training is in neither music nor psychology are welcome with the provision that their background fits well with relevant research interests in music cognition at Ohio State. In the DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY, fellows are eligible for reappointment for a maximum up to 2-3 years of support; the norm will be a one-to-two year appointment with three-year appointments awarded only in special circumstances. In the SCHOOL OF MUSIC, fellows are eligible for reappointment for a maximum of two years of fellowship support; the norm will be a one-year appointment with two-year appointments awarded only in special circumstances. STIPEND AND DATE OF APPOINTMENT: The stipend paid by each Music Cognition Fellowship for a normal twelve-month period is $25,000. The fellowship typically commences the first day of September of the award year, although special arrangements for alternative appointment dates are possible. DEADLINE: The Fellowship Awards Committee will begin its selection process on March 31, 1998. Applications and all supporting documentation should have arrived by that date to insure full consideration by the committee.
