MUSIC ID Digital Research Fellowship

Deadline: December 20, 2019 

Music ID is pleased to announce its second annual Digital Research
Fellowship in popular music studies.

Music ID is an academic platform that compiles current and historical music
industry data into a single, easy-to-use source. Incorporating 5,452
different charts spanning 74 countries, Music ID provides access to chart
information from Billboard and the Official Charts Company dating back to
the 1950s, as well as contemporary, day-to-day statistics on iTunes
downloads, Spotify and Apple Music streams, and Shazam searches. It also
includes built-in visualization tools which allow users to create and
export customizable tables and graphs.

Awarded competitively to scholars at any phase of their careers, the
fellowship is designed to support popular music research that utilizes data
to draw new insights or reinforce prior understandings. The recipient will
receive $1,000 and access to the Music ID platform for one year (all other
applicants will receive access to the platform for six months). Special
preference is given to proposals that demonstrate how they will benefit
from access to the Music ID platform. The recipient is expected to write a
short final report at the end of their fellowship year, describing the
research they conducted and their preliminary findings.

In order to be considered, interested applicants must send an anonymized,
one-page research plan as a PDF to fellowship -at-
by December 20, 2019. The recipient will be chosen through a blind review

Submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and graduate students are
all encouraged and welcome. International applicants are also welcome, but
all submissions must be in English.
