One of the most important functions of the Royal Musical Association, as the principal learned society for music in the UK, is to support the next generation of researchers in its field (including composition, performance and practice). The RMA Research Skills Officer ensures that research students and early-career researchers in music have access to broad and relevant training provision covering a wide range of themes and approaches within the subject. There are three key areas of focus: to co-ordinate research training activities offered by the RMA; to establish collaborative working with other providers of research training in HE, both within music and more broadly; and to devise and support the delivery of new in-person, online and hybrid research training events.
Informal enquiries should be directed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Prof. Catherine Tackley (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications should be sent by email to Prof. Tackley, and should comprise the following:
- A curriculum vitae (maximum 4 sides A4)
- A covering letter outlining ambitions for the post and details of the candidate’s relevant experience and expertise in relation to the person specification
- Names and contact details of two referees
The deadline for applications is Monday 9th January 2023.
Interviews will be held online in January 2023.
We particularly encourage applications that reflect the full diversity of music studies and from individuals who self-identify as members of groups that are often under-represented in the RMA and music academia more broadly.
