SCHOOL OF ARTS, DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC
SALARY: £33K - £55K
DEADLINE: 10 SEPTEMBER 2009
The Department of Music offers students a uniquely rich and diverse musical life at the heart of one of the world's great cultural hubs. The department incorporates first class facilities including a new performance space, digital sound studios, ensemble room and gamelan room, and was placed in the top 15 UK music departments in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
As both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes move into an exciting period of further expansion and development the Department of Music wishes to appoint two new posts.
We would welcome applicants with expertise in one or more subject areas drawn from film music composition; film music studies; music and media; popular music; and historical performance practice. For one post we are especially interested in someone whose areas of expertise include exceptional skills in digital audio and media.
One role (which can be either post) will also be very important in nurturing the department's existing relationship with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and in particular our thriving DMA programme.
For both posts a PhD (or near completion) is essential, ideally with a good track record of research or research potential, and of successful applications for external research funding. You will need to be a versatile team player, willing and able to contribute to our core curriculum and to supervise at postgraduate level. Anticipated starting date is January 2010.

Closing date: Tuesday 10th September 2009 at 5pm.
Interviews to be held 22nd and 23rd September 2009.
