Irish Traditional Music Archive :  Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions
Individual Fellowship 

The Irish Traditional Music Archive / Taisce Cheol Dúchais Éireann
invites Expressions of Interest from post-doctoral researchers
interested in making an application for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions
Individual Fellowship in the non-academic sector. The project shall
focus upon the development of a common linked data framework that can be
used to describe musics which propagate via oral transmission and social

Despite the recent proliferation of linked data ontologies there is an
apparent need for a vocabulary capable of describing musical entities
and relationships such as those found in the collections of the Irish
Traditional Music Archive (ITMA). ITMA will provide domain specific
expertise and access to its world-renowned resources for the duration of
the project.

Suitable candidates will possess a primary degree (or relevant
experience) in music with additional qualifications in areas such as
information science, library/archive studies, digital humanities and/or
computer science. In addition, they must fulfil the mobility requirement
of the MSCA Fellowship scheme which dictates that researchers shall not
have been based in the host country for more than 3 of the previous 5 years.

The duration of the project will be two years and shall be based at ITMA
in Dublin.

ITMA is a national reference archive and resource centre for the
traditional song, instrumental music and dance of Ireland. Established
in 1987, the Archive is the first body to be exclusively concerned with
making a comprehensive collection of materials for the appreciation and
study of Irish traditional music and now holds the largest such
collection in existence worldwide. More information on ITMA and its work
can be found at http://www.itma.ie

Prospective candidates are encouraged to visit
for detailed information on the award and application process.

To discuss further please contact Piaras Hoban (Digital Projects
Officer) at piaras.hoban at itma.ie <mailto:piaras.hoban at itma.ie>

Expressions of Interest must be submitted no later than 17:00 on Tuesday
12 July.


kind regards,
