Pre/post-doc positions in Vienna

(Apologies for cross-postings.)

Dear list,

The *Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence* (Vienna, Austria) invites excellent researchers at pre-doctoral or post-doctoral level to join a research project on communication and synchronization in music ensembles.

The project, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), aims to investigate visual communication and temporal synchronization in music ensembles. It involves measurement, analysis, and modeling of musicians’ body movements and synchronization mechanisms while performing together (duet, trio, or larger). Development of real-time interaction models will go alongside extensive experimentation with musicians to gain essential insights into a very fundamental human behavior.

We encourage applicants with backgrounds in computer science, psychology, engineering, musicology or related fields. Programming skills and/or experience with MATLAB, JAVA, C++, or similar are required. Some experience in empirical music performance research, motion capture technology, and/or real-time technologies are desired. The positions are available from October 1st 2012 for initially 2 years, with prospect for continuation. Annual salary follows the official scheme of the Austrian Science Fund (see http://fwf.ac.at/de/projects/personalkostensaetze.html); citizens of all countries may apply. Doctoral researchers have the option to pursue a PhD programme in a related field at the MDW (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna), the JKU (Johannes Kepler University Linz), or any other Austrian university.

Applications should include a letter of motivation, a CV with a complete list of publications (preferably with links to full texts of important publications), and graduation documents of the highest degree (master or PhD). Applications will be considered immediately and are accepted until September 1st, 2012, or until the positions are filled. Please, send your applications to goebl@xxxxxxxxx with PDF attachments or links to online resources or by mail to OFAI, Freyung 6/6, 1010 Vienna, Austria.
