Funding Application Training Day (Sheffield), Call for proposals
Research projects on cross-modal and embodied music psychology
Proposals are invited from postdoctoral and doctoral researchers who are interested in working for a period of time at the University of Sheffield or an affiliated institute, and who wish to apply for external funding to support their research. After a pre-selection, candidates are invited to come to Sheffield for a training day, where they will receive feedback on their proposal, and develop the proposal in collaboration with the potential host. A full funding application will then be submitted to the appropriate funding body.
Successful projects will be hosted at the University of Sheffield, University of Oxford, Tel Aviv University or the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The research support team will consist of Prof. Nicola Dibben and Dr Renee Timmers, University of Sheffield, UK, Prof. Eric Clarke, University of Oxford, UK, Prof. Zohar Eitan, Tel Aviv University, and Dr. Roni Granot, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
Investigations should be related to cross-modal correspondences with or in music, or to embodied music cognition, and should combine empirical and theoretical elements. Neurological studies are a possibility, but please get in touch to consult about this option before you apply.
