Location: York

Situated in the heart of the vibrant, historic city of York, and with roots dating back to 1841, York St John University has a long and proud tradition as a distinguished higher education provider. Our success is founded on the quality of academic teaching and research, our thriving campus environment, our professional and pastoral support, and our values of an inclusive, innovative and ambitious community with a strong sense of belonging.  

The International Centre for Community Music (ICCM) is a research centre based in the School of Performance and Media Production and directed by Professor Lee Higgins. The ICCM aims to provide a global forum through which community music research, teaching, scholarship, professional practice and pedagogy can be nurtured and developed. Over the next three-years we will collaborate with JM International on a project focusing on global folk music and young musicians. The research will focus on the impact that Ethno has had on the lives of young musicians, personally and professionally, over the past 30 years. 

Based within the ICCM team at our beautiful York campus, you will work closely with researchers and other members of the ICCM to coordinate the effective delivery of this significant project. 

An effective communicator, you will be able to quickly build relationships with diverse groups of researchers and international colleagues involved in Ethno. You will bring experience in project co-ordination and communications including managing data collection, organization of events and coordinating project logistics, (including booking travel) as well as promoting the research outputs and developing an engaged audience through the website and social media.

This role is offered on the basis of 15 hours per week, for the duration of the Ethno Project. Flexibility is available and hours can be agreed with the Director of ICCM. 

For informal enquiries, please contact Lee Higgins, Director of the ICCM l.higgins@yorksj.ac.uk

In addition to a competitive salary and the opportunity to work at our beautiful campus in the heart of York, YSJ employees enjoy access to a superb range of benefits including –

  • Generous annual leave entitlement (plus additional leave days during our Christmas closure period)
  • Pension scheme
  • Health cash plan
  • Training and development
  • Discounts at a wide range of high street brands and local companies, including shops, cinemas and gyms.

We welcome all applicants and particularly people from minority ethnic backgrounds as they are underrepresented within the university.
