Liverpool Hope University is a vibrant community with high scholarly standards. We are proud of our past, confident in our present and ambitious for our future. Research is central to our curriculum development and enhancement and all academic staff at the University engage in research. Building upon our REF 2014 submission we are looking with ambition and confidence to the next REF, strengthening even further our research degree programme (PhD and EdD). This developing research expertise builds upon and complements our already well established reputation for excellence in teaching and learning. Our policy is to combine these elements of our work in keeping with the University’s stated academic profile as a research-informed, teaching University of distinction. It is in this context that we now seek scholars in a number of areas who will join with us in pursuit of excellence; these opportunities include the post of:
Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Music
We are looking to appoint two Lecturers/Senior Lecturers in Music, who will undertake teaching on the undergraduate BA and Major programmes in Music, as well as contributing to the MA Music and other provision. Candidates should have teaching experience, in Musicology, Music Analysis & Theory and Music Performance, and be able to contribute to the supervision of undergraduate (and where appropriate postgraduate taught) dissertations. The department would like to appoint one candidate within musicology, with a focus on classical music, and one within an area of music performance. The ability to teach in the area of popular music would be desirable.
The posts are permanent, subject to the normal probationary period of twelve months.
Please note that a PhD is required for the post of Senior Lecturer. When completing your application please include the title and a copy of the abstract of your doctoral dissertation. Candidates who have not completed a PhD but are at a very advanced stage can be short-listed and interviewed for the post of Lecturer. However, if offered the post you would be required to successfully complete the PhD within 6 months from the date of appointment to the role. The post will not be continued beyond this point unless this condition is met.
We recruit staff nationally and internationally as we seek out the best to help build Hope for the future. If you join us you will be doing so at an exciting and challenging time as we work to build a liberal arts inspired university of distinction in the UK. If you have the energy, drive and commitment to assist us in this task, we would be delighted to hear from you.
