University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3/CNRS: Postdoc – Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice (ANR Staccato)

  • Deadline: 09 August 2021
  • The STACCATO project (ANR-19-CE38-0008-05, Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice) is an interdisciplinary project falling within the themes of vibrotactile perception and digital and electroacoustic tools allowing its implementation. More precisely, the objectives of the project are 1) to explore the vibrotactile modality as sensory feedback for the perception of the sound event and the gestural control of instrumental interfaces in musical practice with people having or not sensory impairment, 2) to develop a system of vibrotactile signs and analyze its use in context for communication between musicians in collective musical playing situations, 3) to analyze in a comparative manner the functions of the vibrotactile modality for sensory feedback and for codified communication. The originality of the project lies in its aim to combine a technological approach (acoustics, engineering) and a psychological approach to the sensory experience. Another is to bring together teams with complementary skills and expertise in psychology, mechanics and acoustics, music, electroacoustics, digital technologies, signal processing, linguistics and speech analysis (LAM, Lutheries-Acoustique-Musique, UMR 7190, Institut d'Alembert, Sorbonne Université ; Institut de Recherche en Musicologie, IReMus, UMR 3226, Sorbonne Université ; Unité Transversale de Recherche Psychogenèse et Psychopathologie, UTRPP, UR 4403, Université Sorbonne Paris Nord ; ISEN d'Électronique, de Microélectronique et de Nanotechnologie, IEMN, UMR 8520 Lille ; Praxiling, UMR 5267, Université Montpellier 3).
  • This research will be carried out with musicians and non-musicians (with and without sensory impairment). It consists of carrying out semi-structured individual interviews before and after two sessions of individual experimentation with the vibrotactile object. In parallel, two collective experiments with the vibrotactile object will be organized.
  • The mission of the recruited person will consist of: (1) helping to develop the protocol for collective experiments, (2) passing this protocol on to the participants and collecting the audio and video data during the experiment, (3) transcribe the data collected during the completion of this protocol using dedicated software (Praat, Clan, Elan), (4) annotate this data according to the different categories of analysis that will have been determined within the framework of the Staccato project, 5) analyze these data at the quantitative and qualitative levels and 6) disseminate and publish the results of these analyzes in collaboration with the other members of the ANR STACCATO.
  • Knowledge
  • Knowledge in the field of linguistics and language data analysis
  • Experience with language data transcription and processing software (e.g. Praat, CLAN, ELAN)
  • Knowledge in the field of music and musicology
  • Experience in setting up experimental studies
  • The candidate must be strongly motivated by work in an interdisciplinary field relating both to the collection of language data in a context of shared musical practice and in the design and implementation of experimental devices.
  • The person recruited will be attached to the Praxiling Laboratory (UMR CNRS 5267) located at the University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3. Praxiling is a research laboratory in language sciences under the double supervision of the CNRS and the University Paul Valéry, Montpellier 3 which is made up of 49 members. The research carried out within the unit is mainly in discourse analysis, these being considered in their concrete conditions of production, that is to say constructed by subjects in interaction and linked to situated practices ("Praxis"). This conception of discourse is the basis of the analysis of linguistic functions and dynamics, developed by the Praxiling unit. Thus, the Praxiling laboratory is made up of linguists, phoneticians and anthropologists whose work is based, for the most part, on the exploitation of written and oral corpora exploited with the help of digital tools. More specifically, the recruited person will work on the research themes of ANR STACCATO (project ANR-19-CE38-0008-05; acronym: STACCATO; title: Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice) whose scientific coordinator is Hughes Genevois (LAM, UMR 7190, Institut d'Alembert, Sorbonne University) and the local coordinator for Praxiling Christelle Dodane (MCF HDR in phonetics).

Musicology/Ethnomusicology 2021-22 Wiki Moderator: 5120j (

  • A few comments from 5120j:
  • 1. My rule of thumb for deciding which jobs to post is: "COULD an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" Not the more narrow question "WILL an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" So, this means I will post more general "humanities" jobs, and positions (mostly at small schools) looking for someone to teach music history/appreciation but also direct an ensemble/teach applied lessons/etc. (If the most important part of the job seems to be the ensemble directing/applied lessons and music history/appreciation is an add-on, I don't post it.)
  • 2. I post almost the entire text of the job ad (except in the case of part-time/adjunct jobs) so that if any changes are made later, they can be noticed and noted. The ads also usually disappear from the institution's website after the application deadline has passed, so it's helpful to preserve them here. And it's very instructive to see how the winning candidate did and didn't fit the job as it was advertised. I do usually excise the description of the hiring school/department/facilities and the EOE boilerplate, but I leave the rest of it as-is. Removing anything more feels like editorializing on my part.
  • 4. My anon email is 5120janon at gmail, and I welcome comments and questions about the wiki and its moderation this year. I'm not a musicologist of any type and am not (and will not be) on the market myself, but I have a professional interest in the ethno/musicology job market and have been moderating the wiki for going on seven years.
