Job type: fellowship
Application deadline: March 14, 2016
Three Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are available for a project on ‘Sound and Materialism in the 19th Century’ at the University of Cambridge. Full-time; three years; beginning 1 September 2016.
The research project aims to enlarge substantially our understanding of the dialogue between 19th-century music and natural science. It examines in particular how a scientific-materialist conception of sound was formed alongside a dominant culture of romantic idealism. It is hoped that an appointment will be made within each of the following broad subfields:
- machines and mechanism;
- forms of nature;
- technologies for sound.
