Lincoln College invites applications for a three-year, non-renewable, Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) in Music, available from 1 September 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter, until 31 August 2023. This post is intended to provide a career development opportunity for a scholar in the early stages of an academic career.

Applicants should not previously have held a similar early-career research fellowship.
The Fellow will be expected to undertake advanced research in any field of music. He or she will be required to provide tutorial teaching or small group teaching for up to three hours per week, averaged across the three 8-week terms of the academic year and to act as advisor to a limited number of graduate students in the subject.
