Job Description

Are you interested in working for a vibrant, Russell Group University? Are you committed to delivering an excellent student experience? Are you ready to shape a new generation of music graduates by supporting—through the study of instrumental composition and orchestration—their development of cutting-edge subject knowledge and critical skills?

We are seeking to recruit an experienced Teaching Associate to contribute to our innovative teaching. You will contribute to the coordination and delivery of teaching within the Department of Music.

As a member of the Music Composition team, you will play a key role in teaching across the Department’s undergraduate composition modules, focusing on instrumental composition and orchestration. This includes supervision of UG final year students.

You will be responsible for the delivery of face-to-face teaching, supported by online materials within a blended learning framework; undertake marking duties; provide supervision and academic tutor support to students; and undertake administrative responsibilities as required.

As an academic tutor, you will work closely with Professional Service colleagues to signpost students to appropriate services for academic, mental health and well-being support.

You must be based in the UK, and willing to work on campus in Sheffield to deliver teaching, attend training, meetings and other events throughout the working year.

We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
