Deadline:
Sun Feb 08, 2009 13:41

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Multimedia and Electronic Music
MEME@Brown
New Deadline: March 1, 2009

The Cogut Center for the Humanities and the Department of Music at Brown University invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in International Humanities focused on multimedia and electronic music. We seek a candidate with broad interdisciplinary interests with evidence of exceptional artistic and scholarly promise. The successful candidate will be expected to participate equally in the MEME program in the Music Department and in the Cogut Center for Humanities, teaching one course per semester in specific area(s) of electronic music and multimedia, and participating in the Cogut Center's activities, including the Fellows' Seminar.

The MEME program (Multimedia and Electronic Music Experiments) offers an undergraduate "track" and a Ph.D. in Electronic Music and Multimedia. MEME actively promotes research, production, publications, and technology exploring new art forms that combine digital music and sound with performance, installation, human-computer interaction, video processing, text, and/or images. The Cogut Center for the Humanities supports collaborative research among scholars in the humanities, focusing on interdisciplinary and comparative work across cultural and linguistic boundaries.

Brown University is a leading Ivy League institution with a distinctive academic program and a tradition of innovative and rigorous multidisciplinary study. A commitment to diversity and intellectual freedom has remained a hallmark of the University since its establishment. The Department of Music--with 14 full-time faculty, 30 teaching associates, music library, and state-of-the-art music and multimedia production facilities --supports undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of history, theory, ethnomusicology, composition, performance, computer music and multimedia.

Fellowships are awarded to postdoctoral scholars who received a doctoral degree from institutions other than Brown University within the last five (5) years and prior to March 1, 2009. Fellows are paid a stipend commensurate with that of the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships and are supplied with individual research funds as well as a fund for visiting speakers and conference planning related to the seminar theme. We encourage applications for fellows from outside North America.

Candidates should send a letter of application, a curriculum vita, three letters of recommendation, and three examples of creative work (DVD, CD or website link) to:

Cogut Center Postdoctoral Fellowship
