The Music subject area at the University of Manchester invites applications for a 36-month temporary lectureship in Music arising from the award of a three-year Leverhulme Major Research Fellowhip to Dr. Susan Rutherford. Applicants from all areas of Musicology or Ethnomusicology will be considered, but preference may be given to those offering specialism in vocal studies or performance studies.

You will be expected to lead undergraduate and Master’s-level teaching in your field of specialism, to contribute to the management and administration of the subject area under the guidance of the Head of Music/Head of Division. While the post is primarily teaching-focused, it is expected that you will contribute to the research culture of the subject area; a notional 10% of your working hours will be allowed to pursue these activities, and appropriate support will be available from the Division and School.

You will hold a PhD in Music (Musicology or Ethnomusicology), demonstrate subject expertise in your specialist field, have a strong awareness of current thinking in the field and have a proven ability to provide high-quality and innovative teaching to a range of student groups at different levels. You will also be expected to contribute to the planning and development of new course units.
