The Department of Music, City University London:
„Lecturer in Music“
Deadline: 24 June 2015
Beginn: 1 September 2015
We are looking for a specialist in Western art music of the Common Practice period (17th-19th c.) with an outstanding research profile. While we are particularly interested in scholars with expertise in analysis and/or performance, applicants should demonstrate a capacity to make imaginative links between different areas of the Department’s work. This could, for example, take the form of parallel research interests in popular or non-Western musics. While we value professional experience in these areas, the overarching criterion for appointment will be a research profile commensurate with a position in a research-driven university, whether manifested in scholarly textual outputs, creative practice, or both.
In order to be appointed to the post you will have a PhD and a growing international reputation. You will be producing internationally significant research, and will be expected to make a strong submission to the next Research Excellence Framework exercise. You should be able to evidence success in generating external research funding and/or the potential to generate further funding.
You will be able to demonstrate experience as a university teacher, having taught at different levels, and show the potential to undertake effective PhD supervision if you have not already done so. You will be expected to deliver content across a range of areas, as agreed with the Head of Department, but you will also be expected to develop new curriculum initiatives in keeping with your own research interests. You will be fully abreast of recent developments and current issues in the music studies field. You will have a positive and pro-active outlook, and be an excellent team player, while also being able to work independently and demonstrate individual initiative in taking new ideas forward.
