The Faculty of Music at the University of Cambridge wishes to appoint a
University Lecturer in Music in Contemporary Societies, starting on 1
September 2021. Salary: £41,526 - £52,559. 

Holding a PhD in Music or a related discipline and with a record of, or
clear potential for, outstanding research, you will be a scholar
focusing-individually or in combination-on popular, art and traditional
music cultures as they are produced, debated, and experienced today. Your
work will complement that of an expanding and interdisciplinary research
cluster within the Faculty, made up of colleagues working in sound studies,
ethnomusicology, popular music, jazz, and global histories of
music-including post- and decolonial approaches.

You will teach on new courses within a revised undergraduate degree at
Cambridge. While these will require expertise in popular music studies,
your precise disciplinary area, geographical focus, or research methodology
are less important than your general breadth of vision.

We support and encourage under-represented groups and we value diversity.
We welcome applications from individuals with disabilities. Our recruitment
and selection procedures follow best practice. The University has an Equal
Opportunities Policy, along with a range of diversity networks for women,
black and minority ethnic and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff.
