Early Career Fellowships in Music

These one-year appointments (part- and/or full-time; likely to vary from year to year) are intended for scholars who have recently completed the PhD and wish to acquire experience in teaching, administration and pastoral care as further preparation for a career in higher education. Fellows will act as full members of the department, with allocation of office space, clerical support, postal, telephone, photocopying, and other resources as appropriate, commensurate with those provided for permanent academic staff. Fellows will be eligible to apply for research funding and staff development programmes within the discipline and the University.

Although the primary purpose is to provide a framework for the acquisition of a range of teaching skills to enhance fellows’ prospects of gaining academic employment, fellows may also receive advice and support on the development of their postdoctoral research profiles if they wish.
