Call for 9-month Mitacs Fellowship

(MFA/MA/MSW/PhD or Postdoctoral)

Commencing January, 2020

Applications are invited for a Graduate Fellowship (MA/MFA/PhD, terminal degree, or Postdoctoral Fellow) to undertake up to 9-months dedicated research in the VOICE Lab, University of Regina, Canada situated in the Faculties of Media, Art, and Performance (MAP) and Social Work (SW). The program is intended to foster a high-potential researcher, enrolled in (or applying to) a Graduate level program in MAP or SW; or not more than 5 years from completing PhD in a related field, who has already demonstrated excellence in artistic creation and/or research in the early stages of his/her research career.

Submission deadline is 12:01 am on December 2, 2019

The VOICE Lab (Vocally Oriented Investigations in Creative Expression) connects voice, arts practice, & technology, with a view to providing creative possibilities for people with complex vocal disabilities. In this research (Voicing, Finding Voice, Giving Voice to the Vocally Challenged), we want to address a gap in existing vocal research in Canada by expanding the scientific/medical model to include creative self-expression beyond the bare minimum of rehabilitation and therapy. A community-based project, the VOICE Lab will use available digital software to launch artistic creation and to support, augment and extend voice, build community and enhance public awareness about who speaks, and who doesn't. This research will mobilize knowledge through any of the following: 1) the public dissemination of art/performance; 2) skills training for the vocally challenged; and/ or 3) conventional journal articles and conference presentations. The ideal candidate will engage in innovative creative research, based in any of the following arts practices: emerging creative technologies, vocal / musical experimentation and assistive technology. He/she will ideally have experience working with vocally challenged individuals or with those with complex disAbilties. Experimental. Somatic expertise will be considered favorably. We encourage those who identify as disAbled to apply. 

Closing Date: December 1, 2019
