Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor in Music Analysis from
1 September 2020. You may specialise in any musical style or tradition,
from any analytical or theoretical angle, including (but not limited to)
formal, historical, computational, ethnographic, and cognitive
perspectives. You will conduct high-quality research in your field of
expertise and will be expected to develop connections and interdisciplinary
dialogue between your field and other areas supported by the Department.
You will be entitled to apply for research leave and research support in
accordance with University and Departmental guidelines. You will contribute
to high quality teaching and curriculum development at UG and PG levels in
the fields of music analysis or music theory (broadly conceived) and may
also contribute towards teaching in other areas.

Durham’s Department of Music is one of the very best in the UK, and indeed
worldwide, with an outstanding reputation for excellence in research and
teaching. Ranked third overall amongst music departments in the last
national research evaluation (REF2014), we attract exceptionally talented
undergraduate and postgraduate students, and focus on high-quality
research-led teaching. We have a thriving and supportive research culture,
with funding from national and international research councils and
foundations, and a community of postdoctoral fellows in the Department. In
student-facing guides and league tables we are regularly ranked as the
number one Music Department in the UK (Complete University Guide 2018,
2019, and 2020; The Sunday Times 2017, 2018 and 2019; Guardian 2019). We
are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and to increasing the
diversity of our staff and student bodies as well as our curriculum, as
evidenced by our recent application towards the Athena SWAN Bronze Award
(see ).

Our strategic priorities include nurturing innovative connections and
interdisciplinary dialogue between these areas and enhancing the diversity
of our research base. The research environment features world-class
facilities, wide methodological expertise, opportunities for discussion and
feedback, mentoring and other support schemes. We also benefit from
University policies which support staff work-life balance, for example by
offering additional research leave following a period of parental leave.
