The University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a 1.0 FTE Lecturer in Music (fixed-term) to teach across both the BA Music and MRes programmes.

As a new member of staff at the University of Lincoln, the successful candidate will be situated within the School of Creative Arts, part of the College of Arts. The School offers Undergraduate programmes in Dance, Drama & Theatre, Fine Art, Music, Creative Writing, and Technical Theatre & Stage Management, alongside a suite of M-level programmes and MPhil/PhD opportunities.

The School of Creative Arts resources include purpose-built rehearsal rooms, general purpose studios, a 400-seater theatre (Lincoln Performing Arts Centre) and the MAC suite which support the production of traditional and digital music production. The Music department owns a range of instruments, including a grand piano and a full production suite, supported by a full-time technician.

The University of Lincoln’s BA (Hons) Music degree programme balances performance, composition and academic modules with a range of industry-focused, public-facing modules that stimulate engagement with the local scene as well as link the theoretical and academic study of music with the practical and creative aspects of the discipline. 

As a Lecturer in Music, your primary duties will be to teach and assess student work across a range of both undergraduate and postgraduate practical and theoretical modules, with a specific focus on ethnomusicology, music and society and the music industries. 

You will have experience of working in music higher education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and will be expected to fulfil the role’s minimum requirements in teaching, scholarship and/or professional practice. You will have performance experience in any musical genre or tradition, and will be able to take on the leadership of the folk band, adapting its repertoire to your musical knowledge and tradition. Experience in the music industries as an event organiser or artistic director is desirable. Duties may also include module leadership, fulfilling appropriate administrative and recruitment duties, and contributing to the extra-curricular provision. 

Recruited at Grade 7, the successful candidate will also support the ongoing development and continuation of Music provision in the university.
