Faculty of Music


The Faculty of Music wishes to appoint a composer specialising in electroacoustic or acousmatic music to the post of Assistant Professor (0.5 FTE), starting on 1 September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Holding a PhD in Composition (or with equivalent experience) and with a record of, or clear potential for, outstanding research, you will be a composer with specialist expertise in studio composition or live electronics, potentially also encompassing laptop composition and/or digital signal processing. You will also have expertise in acoustic composition and be willing to support and contribute to its teaching within the Faculty. Your work will accordingly intersect with and complement the Faculty’s current research in acoustic Composition as part of a Creative Practice cluster. Applicants whose approach shows interdisciplinary potential (e.g. possible synergies with the Faculty’s Centre for Music and Science or other University faculties and departments) will be especially welcome. The specialist remit of this particular post does not extend to algorithmic or commercial composition, film music or sound design.

You will be ready to teach at all undergraduate and postgraduate levels and have the capacity to attract PhD students. You will also contribute to the Faculty’s administration, outreach and impact activity. The Faculty teaches Composition through lectures, seminars, workshops including feedback on student work, and one-to-one supervision.

The successful candidate will be expected to take up appointment on 1 September 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.
