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.

A completed Ph.D. is required. The deadline for receipt of applications is 14 March 2016.
