Dear all,

there is an open position available for a junior researcher on the artistic research project I lead. This is a part-time position (15 hours/week), it runs from 15.2.2016- 14.2.2017. The project is located at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz.


Some info on the project:

TransCoding is a new music/media arts project on the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), designation “PEEK Project AR 259-G21.” Through TransCoding, we invite our community to participate actively on social media in a way that influences the project’s artistic outcomes. The target audience is 20 to 35 years old, media literate, and tends to be more knowledgeable of the “pop” world than of classical music (http://transcoding.info).

Who we are looking for:
We are searching for a Junior Researcher with excellent English skills to join the team of the artistic research project “TransCoding –From ‘Highbrow Art’ to Participatory Culture” at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (http://www.kug.ac.at), to help bring the project to its conclusion throughout the next year (overall project duration 2014-2017). The candidate may have a background in any relevant field, including but not limited to (systematic) musicology, cultural studies, or media/communications studies.

Details about our team, methodology, and research questions are all on our website http://transcoding.info

Please help spread the word.
