Funding Application Training Day (Sheffield), Call For Proposals

Research projects on cross-modal and embodied music psychology

Proposals are invited from postdoctoral and doctoral researchers who
are interested in working for a period of time at the University of
Sheffield or an affiliated institute, and who wish to apply for
external funding to support their research. After a pre-selection,
candidates are invited to come to Sheffield for a training day, where
they will receive feedback on their proposal, and develop the proposal
in collaboration with the potential host. A full funding application
will then be submitted to the appropriate funding body.

Successful projects will be hosted at the University of Sheffield,
University of Oxford, Tel Aviv University or the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem. The research support team will consist of Prof. Nicola
Dibben and Dr Renee Timmers, University of Sheffield, UK, Prof. Eric
Clarke, University of Oxford, UK, Prof. Zohar Eitan, Tel Aviv
University, and Dr. Roni Granot, Hebrew University of Jerusalem,

Investigations should be related to cross-modal correspondences with
or in music, or to embodied music cognition, and should combine
empirical and theoretical elements. Neurological studies are a
possibility, but please get in touch to consult about this option
before you apply.
