Post-doctoral research fellowship: modelling musical preference decisions

Dear All (with apologies for cross-posting),

We seek to appoint a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at Queen Mary, University of London as part of an EPSRC-funded project on predicting musical choices using computational models of cognitive and neural processing. The goal of the project is to understand the cognitive and neural processes involved in musical preference decisions using computational modelling that incorporates the structure of the music, the psychological state and traits of the listener and the listening context.

The successful candidate will be involved in the design and implementation of the models, data collection from human listeners in behavioural and EEG experiments, analysing the data to test the model predictions, and writing up the results for publication in peer-reviewed journals.

Start date: 5 January 2015. Duration: 14 months (until March 5 2016). Salary: £34,283.
