Subject: [MUSIC-IR] research positions at centre for digital music,
queen mary, london

the centre for digital music is pleased to announce two research
positions: one is for a PhD studentship and the other a salaried
research fellowship.

both positions will be in areas where the semantic web meets semantic
audio,a topic where the centre for digital music is at the forefront of
research worldwide.

the PhD position will be attached to the NEMA project, which is a
world-wide collaboration of leading labs, and which aims to integrate
the efforts of all its participating labs into one huge music
information retrieval system. stephen downie of the university of
illinois at urbana-champaign is leading this project, and there will be
other researchers in montreal, waikato, southampton and goldsmiths (also
london).  the work at queen mary will be concerned with the music
ontology (musicontology.org), publishing linked musical data on the
semantic web, and providing web services access to musical data

the start date will be april 1, but can be sooner to suit the right

the research fellowship is to work on the OMRAS2 project
the position is for just over 2 years, and requires knowledge of the
state-of-the-art in Music Information Retrieval. we are looking
particularly for someone with demonstrable experience of working on the
semantic web, with RDF, and/or with logic and inference, and need
someone who is comfortable writing and documenting code, as well as
performing leading edge research. further details are available at
