University of Cambridge: British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship (Deadline: 18 August 2017)Edit

  • The British Academy will shortly invite applications to their prestigious Postdoctoral Fellowships scheme, with a deadline expected to be in early October 2017 (http://www.britac.ac.uk/british-academy-postdoctoral-fellowships). These fellowships fund three years of research on a topic of the applicant’s choice, and applications have to be hosted by a UK higher education institution. You should check the latest eligibility details on the British Academy website but basically you need to have obtained your doctorate in the last three years or else to have your viva by the end of March 2018 (but see below). There are also nationality/residency conditions, but you are automatically eligible if you have a doctorate from a UK university.
  • If you would like to apply through the University of Cambridge, you need to submit a draft application to the Faculty of Music by 18 August 2017. Before then you may wish to contact an appropriate member of the Faculty who might act as mentor (for a staff list see http://www.mus.cam.ac.uk/directory/academic-staff), but this is not a requirement.
  • In line with new British Academy requirements, applications will be initially scrutinised by the Faculty but the final decision as to whether we can host your application will be made at University level. We hope to tell you this by around the middle of September; if so, you will be asked at that point to commit yourself to applying through Cambridge, and we will work with you to make your application as good as possible.
  • The documentation we require falls into two parts, the first of which is for the University's evaluation process, while the second is the basis of the application to the British Academy.
  • (i) a document containing your name, the title of your proposed research project, and a research project description (maximum 750 words), addressing the following:
the research problem you are seeking to address and why it is distinctive
the design and methodology through which your project will adresss this problem
how your proposed research will significantly change the established landscape
how you will complete your project within the three-year period of the award
why Cambridge is the right place to carry out the project
  • (ii) a draft British Academy application consisting of the following:
an academic CV
a summary of your doctoral or other previous research in about 500 words
a research proposal of about 1500 words. This should be structured as shown at the bottom, since these are the key sections of the British Academy application form.
  • These documents should be supplied as Microsoft Word documents (not PDFs) emailed to research@mus.cam.ac.uk. You can also use this address for any queries you may have.
  • You should be aware that in 2016 the British Academy introduced a restriction on the number of times you can apply within your period of eligibility. Normally only one application is possible, although a small number of near-miss applicants may be permitted to apply in the following year. (If this applies in your case, please say so; otherwise we shall assume this is your first application.) For this reason we would generally recommend you to apply in this round only if you will have obtained your doctorate by September 2017; this is in part because in most cases the best informed referees will be your examiners (supervisors are not permitted to act as referees).

GENERAL DISCUSSION Edit

Musicology/Ethnomusicology 2017-18 Wiki Moderator: 5120j (5120janon@gmail.com)

  • A few comments from 5120j:
1. My rule of thumb for deciding which jobs to post is: "COULD an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" Not the more narrow question "WILL an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" So, this means I will post more general "humanities" jobs, and positions (mostly at small schools) looking for someone to teach music history/appreciation but also direct an ensemble/teach applied lessons/etc. (If the most important part of the job seems to be the ensemble directing/applied lessons and music history/appreciation is an add-on, I don't post it.)
2. I post almost the entire text of the job ad so that if any changes are made later, they can be noticed and noted. The ads also usually disappear from the institution's website after the application deadline has passed, so it's helpful to preserve them here. And it's very instructive to see how the winning candidate did and didn't fit the job as it was advertised. I do usually excise the description of the hiring school/department/facilities and the EOE boilerplate, but I leave the rest of it as-is. Removing anything more feels like editorializing on my part.
3. I don't have a current membership to CMS/MVL or SEM so if jobs are posted only in those locations, I won't see them. I don't think we've missed too many in the last few years though, since most jobs are advertised fairly widely.
4. My anon email is 5120janon at gmail, and I welcome comments and questions about the wiki and its moderation this year. I'm not a musicologist of any type and am not (and will not be) on the market myself, but I have a professional interest in the ethno/musicology job market.
  • 7/6/17 Call for new moderator: After many years of much-appreciated service, Hybridist will be stepping down as back-up moderator, so I am in search of someone new. I plan to continue to do the day-to-day updates and job postings for the foreseeable future, so this will not require a lot of time on your part. However, I prefer to have a backup administrator/moderator to keep an eye on the page when extra care is needed and/or I am unable to do so myself.
  • If you are interested, please send me an email (anonymously is fine) at 5120janon at gmail dot com.
  • Moderators need to be off the job market, have a basic understanding of the wiki setup/formatting/history, and already have a Wikia.com username with an edit history.
    • 7/6/17 Thank you for everything, Hybridist! I have really appreciated your work all these years. 5120j, thank you also for all of your service to the wiki! (x2)
  • 7/14 Please note that positions starting in Fall 2017 are still being posted on the 2016-17 wiki page.
