Researcher & Developer position – European project Rapid-Mix

Full time position of Researcher & Developer at Ircam, in the R&D Department for 12 months starting from March 1st 2015 (with a possible extension up to 24 months).

Introduction to IRCAM

IRCAM, the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music, is one of the world’s largest non-profit research centers dedicated to both musical expression and scientific research, and is part of the Pompidou Center. A unique institute where artistic sensibilities collide with scientific and technological innovation, hosting composers, researchers and students from many countries cooperating in contemporary music production, scientific and applied research. The main topics addressed in its R&D department (a mixed research on multidisciplinary research on sciences and technologies for music and sound.) are real-time interactive systems, musical interfaces, audio synthesis and processing, acoustics, psychoacoustics, computer aided composition. The institute is located in the center of Paris (France), next to the Pompidou Center at 1, Place Igor Stravinsky, 75004 Paris (http://www.ircam.fr)

Project Summary

The goal of the European project Rapid-Mix is to develop new modes of interaction that integrate physiological human sensing, gesture and body language, and smart information analysis and adaptation. Advanced machine learning software adapts to expressive human variation, allowing fluid interaction and personalized experience. The project uses an intensely user-centric development process and on iterative, rapid development cycles of hardware prototyping, software development, and application integration. The project will accelerate the availability of advanced interface technologies to industry partners. In this project, Ircam is responsible of an workpacakge on agile prototyping but will also participate in all the other tasks.

Position

For this project, Ircam recruits a researcher and developer in the team Sound Music Movement Interaction (http://ismm.ircam.fr). The responsibilities associated to the position include research and development of novel musical interactions systems based on multimodal interfaces. The position implies the participation to all of the project tasks (prototypes development, specification, evaluation, meeting and reports).

Required Skills

  • PhD or equivalent experience (at least Master level) in sound and music computing and/or Human Computer Interaction.
  • Very good knowledge of gesture/movement analysis systems and machine learning techniques.
  • Very good programming skills (C/C++, Javascript, Python) and Max.
  • Very good communication skills (written and oral English).
  • Efficient, creative, methodical, ability to work independently within the projects constraints.

Salary

According to background and experience.

Project Summary

The goal of the European project MusicBricks is to facilitate transfert of new technologies from research to SMEs, such as creative industries in new music technologies. In this project, Ircam is in charge of the deployment of technologies linked to tangible and graphical interfaces (TUI et GUI). In particular, software for gestures analysis, and mapping between movement and sounds will be developed.

Position

For this project, Ircam recruits a developer and researcher in the team Sound Music Movement Interaction (http://ismm.ircam.fr). The responsibilities associated to the position include research and development of novel tangible interfaces and to develop libraries for the gestural signals analysis and gesture/sound mapping. These libraries will be developed from existing code developed in various platforms (C/C++, Max patches, Javascript, Phython Matlab). The position implies the participation to all of the project tasks (prototypes development, specification, evaluation, meeting and reports). In particular, the developer will be also implied in various workshops to transmit and evaluate the software with users. 

Required Skills

  • Very good knowledge of sound and music computing.
  • Very good knowledge of new interfaces for musical expression (sensors and and gesture analysis).
  • Very good programming skills (C/C++, Javascript, Python) and Max.
  • Very good communication skills (written and oral English).
  • Efficient, creative, methodical, ability to work independently within the projects constraints.
