Music at the University of Manchester is one of the leading Music departments in the UK, consistently ranked in the top three in the principal league tables. In order to build on the outstanding success of this thriving department, we are inviting applications for a permanent, full-time lectureship in Musicology/Ethnomusicology, tenable from 1 August 2018. Applications in any area of Musicology/ Ethnomusicology are welcome, although preference will be given to applicants with a specialism in Ethnomusicology and/or Popular Music (including global popular musics). You will be expected to make a strong contribution to the subject area’s research strategy, including through the publication of high-quality peer-reviewed research outputs and the potential to attract external research funding; to lead undergraduate and Master’s-level teaching and supervision in your field of specialism (including both broad-ranging course units and those offering more focused and intensive study), alongside contributing to teaching in other related areas; to recruit and supervise PhD students; and to contribute to the management and administration of the subject area under the guidance of the Head of Music and Head of Division.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the black and minority ethnic (BME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.  All appointments will be made on merit.
