Research Network Administrator
Job reference number: 500-17
Founded in 1882, the Royal College of Music (RCM) is a world-leading music conservatoire with a prestigious history and contemporary outlook. Our 800 undergraduate and postgraduate students come from over 60 countries and are taught in a dynamic environment, leaving the RCM to become the outstanding performers, conductors and composers of the future. In 2016, the RCM was named by the QS World University Rankings as the top conservatoire in the UK and third in the world for the Performing Arts.
In partnership with the International Centre for Community Music at York St John University, the Royal College of Music has been awarded an AHRC Research Network grant. The purpose of the grant is to establish a new group of scholars engaged in a broad variety of research that focusses on musicians who provide active interventions within the fields of music therapy, community music therapy, community music, music education, music and health, music and wellbeing, and music and rehabilitation. The aim of the Network is to critique the current definitions that steer music interventions through an exploration of a series of research questions in order to foster debate, inspire dialogue and create new discourses surrounding excellence and inclusion within music interventions that can support and inform both research and practice. We are seeking to engage a Research Network Administrator to provide organisational and administrative support to the network convenors, and to curate and monitor participation in the network activities.
