Frank Bridge Fellow: Post-doctoral Researcher

Royal College of Music

The Royal College of Music (RCM) is one of the world’s leading conservatoires.  It provides specialised musical education and professional training at the highest international level for performers and composers.

The RCM is seeking to engage an outstanding post-doctoral researcher as Frank Bridge Fellow. The work of Frank Bridge, a former student, is of particular significance to the Royal College of Music which holds the largest single collection of his manuscripts. The RCM is hosting a project which aims to bring his music to a wider audience through the preparation for publication of a wide-ranging collection of essays about the composer and his works and an open-access web-resource of materials relating to the composer, including annotated transcriptions of correspondence and links to available editions of music and recordings. The project is part of the RCM’s wider research interests into twentieth-century British music, a major component of the RCM Collections.

The Frank Bridge Fellow will be the lead researcher for the preparation of an edited collection of scholarly essays about Bridge and his contemporaries, as well as a number of online resources. The Frank Bridge Fellow will gain skills in project management, editing, working with primary sources, time management and facilitation skills, and will liaise with a wide range of academic partners over the course of the project. The post is funded by the Frank Bridge Bequest.
