The position of Senior Research Fellow is in the area of Computer Science and Cultural Data Analytics and is available at the Department of Music in the School of Film, Music, and Theatre at University College Cork. The position is funded by the European Research Council and is associated with the research project CIPHER: Hip Hop Interpellation. This study of global hip hop knowledge flows will synergize computational and ethnographic methods to examine how hip hop “unlocks the global through the local.” The principal investigator of the project is Professor J. Griffith Rollefson.
The successful candidate will work on a research project in global hip hop studies that combines cultural data analytics (text and sound, crowdsourcing, NLP, machine learning, semantic web, stylometry) with ethnographic and cultural studies methods. The researcher will work closely with the PI and a team of ethnographic researchers. S/he will also manage a dedicated doctoral student and a computational support team at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics.
The successful candidate is expected to live in Cork, Ireland and become part of the research environment/network of the university and contribute to its development.
