Professor of Music
Gresham Professor of Music
Applications are invited for the position of the Gresham Professor of Music (musicology, composition, or performance). Gresham Professors must be able to communicate with a public audience who will not normally have specialist expertise in the subject area, but who will be informed people with a thirst for increased knowledge and understanding. The College, founded in 1597, has no students, sets no examinations and awards no degrees: it offers free public lectures, which are live-streamed and archived on the Internet.
The appointment is part-time from 1 August 2019 and normally for three years. Gresham Professors present six one-hour lectures each academic year. Attendance at Academic Board meetings four times per year and some social events is also expected. The post offers excellent opportunities to widen public exposure for the successful candidate, as well as the opportunity to expand his/her communication skills. The College pays an annual stipend of £7,000 (plus reasonable expenses) and encourages applications from all backgrounds and communities.
In addition to the above Gresham Professorship, opportunities may be available for a number of part-time Visiting Professorships at Gresham College, tenable from August 2018 for a period of 1 – 2 years (renewable). Visiting Professors will be expected to deliver three lectures each year during their term of appointment.
