Are you interested in working for a vibrant Russell Group University? Are you committed to delivering an excellent student experience? Are you ready to shape a new generation of music graduates by supporting—through the study of music psychology—their development of cutting-edge subject knowledge and critical skills?
The Department of Music is seeking to appoint a University Teacher in Music Psychology, to provide teaching and administrative cover for a year-long period.
As a member of the Music Psychology team, you will play a key role in teaching on our BMus in Music and our MA in Psychology of Music.
You will lead and deliver teaching across the Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate Music Psychology programmes and modules. This includes the design, delivery and development of modules, training students in qualitative and/or quantitative methods and contributing to team-taught modules. At undergraduate level, you will contribute to modules on ‘Music and Wellbeing’, ‘Introduction to Psychology of Music’, and ‘Psychology of Music: Methods and Applications’. At postgraduate level, you will act as module leader for a selection of the modules (e.g. Advanced issues in Psychology of Music) and contribute to team-taught modules on research techniques and specialist topics (e.g. Music, Brain and Body; Applied Music Psychology).
You will supervise final year and MA dissertations and contribute to the Department’s research community.
You will work collaboratively with academic and Professional Service colleagues to deliver excellent teaching via a range of digital and face-to-face formats, undertake marking and administrative duties, and provide supervision for students engaged in extended independent study.
You will also provide pastoral support to students, signposting appropriate services for academic support, mental health and well-being as appropriate. You will engage in an independent programme of scholarship in your field to inform the curriculum and pedagogy of our programmes. Apart from teaching and administrative responsibilities, a proportion of time is reserved for scholarship advancement and personal development. You will be assigned a mentor to support you in your work and development.
You must be based in the UK, and willing to work on campus in Sheffield (i.e. to deliver face-to-face teaching and attend in-person training, meetings and other events) throughout the working year.
We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK.
