This is an exciting opportunity to join an established subject team and research centre with an international reputation for teaching, research and collaboration. This post is being offered under the Vice-Chancellor’s Lectureship scheme, which aims to enable individuals to grow and develop in their area of expertise in a fully supported teaching and research environment, with access to funding and development to enable them to progress along a teaching and research trajectory. This includes guaranteed initial ring-fenced time to develop research projects and outcomes.

We are seeking an individual to enhance the breadth and skills of the existing team and bring imagination and innovation to developing the subject’s culture, research activities and portfolio of taught programmes. You will be able to offer a dynamic and distinctive contribution to the Music and Audio Subject Group, within the Leicester Media School, and wider university context. Opportunities will exist for future leadership roles for the right person.

You will have the opportunity to become a member of the Music, Technology and Innovation Research Centre (www.mti.dmu.ac.uk), potentially teach across a range of programmes (predominantly BSc Music Technology) contribute to the development of Masters-level provision, and supervise research students. There are many opportunities to develop curriculum content, enhance the experience of students, enhance the reputation of the area nationally and internationally, and benefit from – as well as develop – new national and international collaborative relationships in academia and beyond.

You must have experience of teaching at undergraduate level and a relevant research profile.
