The Music Department at the University of Manchester invites applications for a temporary Lectureship in Music, tenable from 8 Sept. 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter until 30 June 2019, associated with the award of a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship to Professor Susan Rutherford. Applicants from all areas of Musicology or Ethnomusicology will be considered, but preference may be given to those offering a specialism in vocal studies, performance studies and/or popular music. 

You will be expected to deliver undergraduate and Master’s-level teaching and supervision, and to contribute to the management and administration of the subject area under the guidance of the Head of Music. 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.

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.


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.
