Post-Doc position
30 months

The Instituto de Etnomusicologia – Centro de Estudos em Música e Dança (INET-md) is opening a call for a post-doctoral researcher in the field of Music Acoustics. Eligible candidates must hold a PhD or Doctorate degree and will be offered an employment contract, within the scope of the research project entitled "Music research and new Technologies toward the restitution of the Timbila collection of the National Museum of Ethnology", funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia.

The project lies at the crossroad between Ethnomusicology and Music Acoustics research, and aims at investigating a historical collection of traditional wooden xylophones from Mozambique, called Timbila, now considered World's Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. The main goal of the proposed research is to investigate both the vibrational and acoustic behavior of these instruments. The research is centered on the most representative collection of original Timbila in the world, owned by the National Museum of Ethnology of Lisbon, and the analysis will include experimental measurements, physical modelling and numerical simulations.
