Job Details:    Job Description & Person Specification    

The Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries at Middlesex University is recognised as a leading provider of higher education across the breadth of creative disciplines.  In Design, Media, Performing Arts and Visual Arts, our focus is on thinking through making.  We combine a close engagement with professional practice with high quality research and scholarship to ensure that our students and staff are working at the forefront of their disciplines.  Our Hendon campus provides outstanding specialist facilities in North London and a vibrant hub for our network of national and international and partnerships.  We value diversity amongst our students and staff and welcome opportunities from suitably qualified candidates, regardless of background.

We are looking to appoint a Graduate Academic Assistant (Music) to join the Performing Arts Department.

The role will typically be held by a recent graduate and/or postgraduate with a degree in Music, including degrees conferred in 2017/18. The successful candidate will contribute to the student learning and teaching experience, and to the research or professional practice and knowledge transfer profiles of the Faculty. The postholder will work within an established academic team. A core responsibility of the postholder is to provide continuity of support for student learning on a daily basis throughout the academic year, thus this post is not suitable for applicants who wish to work only part time.

Performing Arts at Middlesex University has a well-respected heritage in practice and research that spans the spectrum of performing arts disciplines.  Our courses and research areas emphasise the dynamic relationship between theory and practice, and include dance, theatre arts and music.  The University has made significant investment in state-of-the-art facilities to support innovative provision at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, with a particular emphasis on collaboration.  Our graduates are increasingly recognised as among the very best in their disciplines, distinctive in their educational formation and highly sought after within the creative industries sector, both nationally and internationally.
