MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY OF NEWFOUNDLAND
TIER II (NSERC) CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR IN MUSIC TECHNOLOGY

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and the School of
Music at Memorial University of Newfoundland invite applications for
a Tier II (NSERC) Canada Research Chair in the area of Music
Technology. The Chair is expected to develop a world-class,
externally funded research program focusing on technology needed to
support applications in music.

Candidates shall have an earned Ph.D. degree in music technology or
in electrical or computer engineering or a cognate field. Candidates
are expected to have a strong music background. The research must be
oriented toward innovative music applications; areas of focus may
include (but are not limited to): digital audio and video processing,
networked multimedia communications, human-computer interaction or
acoustics.

The appointment will be tenure-track at the rank of Assistant or
Associate Professor with a joint appointment between the Faculty of
Engineering and Applied Science and the School of Music. In addition
to the research program, the Chair will participate in the academic
programs of the Faculty of Engineering and the School of Music,
including teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, and other
educational, scholarly and professional activities. The Chair is
expected to build upon existing institutional strengths and to foster
collaboration with researchers involved in digital recording and
documentation, as well as applications of new and emerging
technologies for multi-venue performance and teaching.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering discipline has
well-established co-operative undergraduate programs in both
Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, and active graduate
and research programs as well as ongoing collaboration with local,
national and international industry. The Faculty of Engineering
currently has four Canada Research Chairs in addition to several
externally-funded research Chairs. The School of Music offers
comprehensive programs in music at the undergraduate level with
emerging graduate programs in performance, pedagogy and conducting.
The School of Music currently has one Canada Research Chair. Early in
2005, it will inaugurate Petro-Canada Hall, a state-of-the-art
performance / rehearsal facility with advanced capabilities for new
applications of technology in music performance and pedagogy.

Memorial University is the largest university in Atlantic Canada. As
the province's only university, Memorial plays an integral role in
the educational and cultural life of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Offering diverse undergraduate and graduate programs to almost 18,000
students, Memorial provides a distinctive and stimulating environment
for learning in St.
John's, a very safe, friendly city with great historical charm, a
vibrant cultural life, and easy access to a wide range of outdoor
activities.
