We are looking for an expert in musicology as it relates to popular music and/or music technology to join a thriving team teaching Music Technology at Huddersfield. Candidates whose main expertise is in popular music composition will also be considered.
We seek to enhance our international reputation in music technology and new music, for which the University boasts some of the best facilities in Britain.

You will be expected to contribute at an international level (or show potential to do so) to the maintenance and development of the Department’s high standing in research (rated 5 in RAE 2001).
Experience of teaching in Higher Education is essential. A degree (or equivalent) in music, popular music or music technology and a postgraduate degree (or equivalent) is also essential.
You will contribute with imagination and innovation to the Department’s wide-ranging curriculum, and whilst specialising in musicology, you will be expected to contribute to the core music technology curriculum. Expertise in any of the following would be an advantage: popular music composition (especially desirable), popular music performance, sampling, sequencing, hard disk recording and processing, music and the moving image, music and the media, and the music business.
