Position as Professor or Associate Professor at Center for Music in the Brain

Center for Music in the Brain (MIB) invites applications for up to two and a half positions at the level of Professor or Associate Professor in the field of Neuroscience. MIB is situated at the Department of Clinical Medicine at Faculty of Health at Aarhus University (AU).

The Danish National Research Foundation’s Center for Music in the Brain is an interdisciplinary research center at Aarhus University and the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg, Denmark (RAMA) aiming to address the dual questions of how music is processed in the brain and how this can inform our understanding of fundamental principles behind brain functioning in general. With a strong foundation in music practice and theory at the highest level and a focus on the clinical application of music, MIB combines neuroscientific, musicological and psychological research in music perception, action, emotion and learning with the potential to test prominent theories of brain function and to influence the way we play, teach, use and listen to music.

The positions are full-time (37 h/w) positions, but part time appointments could be considered. The positions are permanent positions and are expected to commence on 1 June 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

You will be employed with reference to Professor Peter Vuust, Director of the Center for Music in the Brain.
