Permanent, Full time
The School of Music, Humanities and Media at the University of Huddersfield is looking to appoint a specialist in music production, with an emphasis on popular music, to join the thriving Music and Music Technology team. Our Department is housed in the purpose-built Creative Arts Building, which provides state of the art facilities and support. The Music and Music Technology subject area is also home to several research centres, including the Popular Music Studies Research Group (PMSRG) and the Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) which has strong links with the renowned Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. We focus on a range of styles in our teaching and research and we would define Popular Music at Huddersfield to encompass Western and non-Western practices, traditions and genres, and include jazz and folk musics.
You should have significant experience as a producer in a wide range of styles and ability to use the studio as a creative tool. You should also have a strong interest in teaching this set of skills to our students. You should have experience of group teaching in Higher Education, and also have some experience in either performance or composition of popular music. Experience in leading and assessing a performance programme in popular music at university level would be an asset. You will hold a Degree in Music or related discipline, plus a PhD (or nearing completion) in any music-related subject.
You will contribute with imagination and innovation to the Department's wide-ranging curriculum. You would help to shape and deliver activities related to popular music, which is part of several courses within Music and Music Technology. You will also be expected to contribute to maintaining and further developing the Department's high standing for research (in the REF2014, 85% of music research at Huddersfield was judged to be Internationally Excellent, with 44% of the overall submission ranked as 'World-Leading').
If you are currently registered as a full-time student at the University please note that you may only apply for part-time jobs of 15 hours or less per week.
