Teaching Associate in Musicology

Are you interested in working for a vibrant Russell Group University? Are you committed to delivering an excellent student experience? Are you ready to shape a new generation of music graduates by supporting—through the study of musicology—their development of cutting-edge subject knowledge and critical skills?
The Department of Music is seeking to appoint an experienced and innovative Teaching Associate (0.2 FTE for 9 months fixed term) to contribute to our exceptional portfolio of Musicology education. As a member of the Musicology team, you will play a key role in teaching on our BMus in Music and our MA in Musicology, as well as contributing to the broader scholarly and creative culture of the Department.
Specifically, we are seeking a musicologist who has expertise in the broad area of ‘Opera & Identity’ and will be able to design and deliver a module in this area. Additionally, you will supervise final year and MA dissertations.

You will engage in an independent programme of scholarship in your field to inform the curriculum and pedagogy of our programmes.

You will work collaboratively with academic and Professional Service colleagues to deliver excellent teaching via a range of digital and face-to-face formats, undertake marking and administrative duties, and provide supervision for students engaged in extended independent study.
You will also provide tutorial support to students, signposting appropriate services for academic support, mental health and well-being as appropriate.
You must be based in the UK, and willing to work on campus in Sheffield (i.e. to deliver face-to-face teaching and attend in-person training, meetings and other events) throughout the working year.

We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.

We are one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
