Applications are invited for three fully funded, five-year PhD positions within the research project “The Platformization of Music: Towards a Global Theory” at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. One of these positions will focus on how Korean music streaming and social media platforms are changing the working conditions and creative practices of Korean musicians.
Applications are invited for three fully funded, five-year PhD positions (0.8 FTE) within the research project “The Platformization of Music: Towards a Global Theory” (PlatforMuse), financed by an ERC Starting Grant and coordinated by the Principal Investigator (PI), dr. Robert Prey.
How are music streaming and social media platforms changing the working conditions and creative practices of music artists around the world? How can we better understand the transformative impact of “platformization” through the lens of music? With case studies in the Netherlands, South Korea, and Nigeria, PlatforMuse takes music as a medium through which to examine the global dynamics of platformization.
The project will employ three PhD students who will each focus on one of the case study countries in collaboration with the PI. The PhDs will work both in the Netherlands (Groningen) and in either Nigeria, South Korea, or the Netherlands for field work.
This PhD project offers a unique opportunity to work in an international environment and to acquire valuable research experience.
