Research assistant (part-time), Hybrid Live

Goldsmiths, University of London is a world-leading centre of educational excellence where ground-breaking research meets innovative teaching and thinking. We're looking for inspiring and talented people to help build on our global reputation while also growing personally in a true learning organisation.

The Department of Computing is a vibrant, innovative and intellectually stimulating environment in which to work and study. We have a unique view of computing as a creative practice-based discipline: we pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of computer science research and on teaching our students to be innovative and practical professionals, able to think for themselves and to bring creative solutions to industry and to society. Our research is radically multi-disciplinary and varied with a span that reaches from a strong emphasis on interactivity, virtual reality, and creative uses of computers to data analytics in medical and commercial applications.  We have been extremely successful in recent years, attracting exciting new staff, winning important research grants, and greatly expanding in size, impact, and mission. 

A research assistant is required to work part time on the AHRC Hybrid Live research project.

Hybrid Live is a collaboration between the Embodied AudioVisual Interaction (EAVI) unit at Goldsmiths and the Center for Computer Research in Music & Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford, in cooperation with cultural institutions Iklectik Art Lab (London) and SF Jazz (San Francisco). The project will mobilise advanced deep learning technologies and data visualization techniques in order to make remote, network based musical collaboration more fluid and ultimately musical for a broad range of musicians and music students. It will aid cultural institutions in music to respond to urgent issues raised by the COVID19 pandemic, and more generally broaden access and participation to live music. This will be made possible through an innovative hybrid of physically co-present and remote network musical performance, including a transatlantic connection between San Francisco and London.
