Children’s literature and comparative literature at the Department of Comparative Literature and Rhetoric
The academic staff at the Centre for Children’s Literature and Media operate with a broad and inclusive concept of children’s literature and media that involves texts and media explicitly produced for children, texts and media produced for a broad audience but used by children, and texts and media produced or co-produced by children. Currently, research projects focus on media convergence and transmedial connections surrounding children’s literature and young adult fiction, children’s use and production of YouTube videos, and the establishment of a market for children’s literature in Denmark in the early 19th century, among other things. The programme’s academic staff are widely engaged in interdisciplinary teaching in national and international contexts. In relation to Nordic (particularly Danish) children’s literature, researchers in the programme cooperate with and communicate their work to Danish publishers, literary institutions and institutions of primary and secondary education as well as the general public.

The comparative literature programme works with literature from all over the world and from all time periods. The programme links literature as an independent art form to literature as a central part of cultural life. Research topics span a broad spectrum, and currently the programme hosts research projects on literature and new media, transatlantic slavery, posthuman aesthetics, romantic literature, and the global circulation of literature. In addition to the programme’s core research interests of literary history and theory, world literature and literary culture, the academic staff are involved in a variety of interdisciplinary projects on topics such as digital media, the history of technology and film, and human rights and memory, in relation to both literature and culture. The researchers are also engaged in communicating their work to a broader audience, including continuing education courses for upper-secondary school teachers and the general public, activities at Danish folk high schools and upper-secondary schools, and literary criticism in newspapers and journals.

330022313Professorship in NeuroscienceRobot Department of Clinical Medicine invites applications for a position as full Professor in Neuroscience at Center for Music in the Brain, Department of Clinical Medicine, Health, Aarhus University. The Danish National Research Foundation s Center for Music in the Brain (MIB) is an interdisciplinary research center at Aarhus University (AU) 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 position, which is a part-time position with up to 18.5 hours per week, is expected to be filled by 1 August 2019. You will be employed with reference to the Director of the Center for Music in the Brain. Job description The successful applicant will conduct research on the emotional mechanisms involved in processing and appreciating music, with a particular emphasis on making sense of the predictive processing of musical structure. The research must focus on moving beyond correlational neuroimaging of behavioral experiments to further develop causal whole-brain modelling of data from dMRI, fMRI, PET, EEG and MEG. As such this will relate to an interdisciplinary range of fields, including computer science, artificial intelligence, experimental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry, neurology and neurosurgery. Qualifications The research will be conducted within MIB. To support MIB core research goals, the applicant must be able to document interdisciplinary research at the highest international level within the research area of music and emotion, especially in the application of whole-brain computational modelling using neural, probabilistic and information-theoretic methods. The applicant must have worked experimentally with neuroimaging, computational simulations and behavioural methods and excel at using advanced neuroimaging methods such as dMRI, fMRI, PET, EEG and MEG. We are looking for candidates with documented scientific production on the highest international level, a strong interdisciplinary background and demonstrable expertise in music and emotion. High academic probity and ethical standards are also highly desirable. For further information about the position, please contact the Director of Center for Music in the Brain, Peter Vuust, pv@musikkons.dk. About MIB MIB is headed by Professor Peter Vuust and the center is organized around four research topics:Perception, centered around music perception and cognitionAction: centered around the processing of musical rhythms and the interaction between rhythm and motor behaviorEmotion: centered around the relationship between music and emotions, and how and why music brings pleasureLearning: centered around the effect of music training, expertise and individual traits The research in the center is based on the predictive coding of music hypothesis proposing that music reflects fundamental brain mechanisms associated with prediction. This hypothesis offers a fresh perspective on how specialized brain networks can identify and categorize causes of sensory inputs, integrate information with other networks, and adapt to new stimuli. It proposes that perception and learning occurs in a recursive Bayesian process by which the brain tries to minimize the error between the input and the brain s expectation. MIB is situated in the Danish Neuroscience Center at Health, AU allowing close interactions with residing clinicians, medical scientists and patient groups. This gives easy access to MINDLab Core Experimental Facility with an impressive infrastructure providing an array of state-of-the-art technologies (PET, MRI, fMRI, MEG, EEG, tDCS, and TMS), and extensive support.

The Danish National Research Foundation’s Center for Music in the Brain (MIB) is an interdisciplinary research center at Aarhus University (AU) 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 position, which is a part-time position with up to 18.5 hours per week, is expected to be filled by 1 August 2019.

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

Job description
The successful applicant will conduct research on the emotional mechanisms involved in processing and appreciating music, with a particular emphasis on making sense of the predictive processing of musical structure. The research must focus on moving beyond correlational neuroimaging of behavioral experiments to further develop causal whole-brain modelling of data from dMRI, fMRI, PET, EEG and MEG. As such this will relate to an interdisciplinary range of fields, including computer science, artificial intelligence, experimental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry, neurology and neurosurgery.

Qualifications
The research will be conducted within MIB. To support MIB core research goals, the applicant must be able to document interdisciplinary research at the highest international level within the research area of music and emotion, especially in the application of whole-brain computational modelling using neural, probabilistic and information-theoretic methods. The applicant must have worked experimentally with neuroimaging, computational simulations and behavioural methods and excel at using advanced neuroimaging methods such as dMRI, fMRI, PET, EEG and MEG.

We are looking for candidates with documented scientific production on the highest international level, a strong interdisciplinary background and demonstrable expertise in music and emotion. High academic probity and ethical standards are also highly desirable.

For further information about the position, please contact the Director of Center for Music in the Brain, Peter Vuust, pv@musikkons.dk.

About MIB
MIB is headed by Professor Peter Vuust and the center is organized around four research topics:
  • Perception, centered around music perception and cognition
  • Action: centered around the processing of musical rhythms and the interaction between rhythm and motor behavior
  • Emotion: centered around the relationship between music and emotions, and how and why music brings pleasure
  • Learning: centered around the effect of music training, expertise and individual traits

The research in the center is based on the predictive coding of music hypothesis proposing that music reflects fundamental brain mechanisms associated with prediction. This hypothesis offers a fresh perspective on how specialized brain networks can identify and categorize causes of sensory inputs, integrate information with other networks, and adapt to new stimuli. It proposes that perception and learning occurs in a recursive Bayesian process by which the brain tries to minimize the error between the input and the brain’s expectation.

MIB is situated in the Danish Neuroscience Center at Health, AU allowing close interactions with residing clinicians, medical scientists and patient groups. This gives easy access to MINDLab Core Experimental Facility with an impressive infrastructure providing an array of state-of-the-art technologies (PET, MRI, fMRI, MEG, EEG, tDCS, and TMS), and extensive support. MIB is also affiliated with RAMA’s music teaching programs of the highest national and international levels, training students as professional musicians and high-level music teachers.

The workplace address is Nørrebrogade 44, Building 10 G, 8000 Aarhus C.
