Now is a truly exciting time to join our dynamic and forward-looking institution; we represent a new breed of university, a fast-growing, gold-rated university where staff and students work collaboratively and create world-changing knowledge and research. We offer our staff simply a life changing opportunity.

The School of Fine & Performing Arts at the University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Musical Theatre with specific skills in musical directing, vocal coaching and piano accompaniment.

As a new member of staff at the University of Lincoln the successful candidate will be situated within the School of Fine & Performing Arts, part of the College of Arts. The School currently offers Undergraduate programmes in Dance, Drama & Theatre, Fine Art, Music, and Technical Theatre & Stage Management, alongside a suite of M-level programmes and MPhil/PhD opportunities. Our new BA (Hons) Musical Theatre is in its second year, having welcomed its first students in September 2020. School resources include the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, which includes rehearsal studios and a 444-seat public theatre venue. The School has a growing reputation of international dimensions and a rich legacy of developing small-scale theatre and performance groups who tour their work to regional venues, community clients, and national festivals.

The BA (Hons) Musical Theatre offers an exciting degree with a balance of practice and theory, and a focus on learning through doing. Each semester’s work centres around the rehearsal and performance of a musical theatre production, with appropriate contextual and reflective learning opportunities developing critical, contextual and technique-based skills. As Lecturer in Musical Theatre, primary duties will be to teach and assess student work across a range of both practical and theoretical modules; to provide practical expertise in mounting student productions as a musical director, and to accompany students in audition, rehearsal and performance environments. Successful candidates may also be expected to make a contribution to the school’s BA (Hons.) and/or MA Music programmes.

Appointed on a Teaching, Scholarship and Professional Practice (TSPP) profile, colleagues would be expected to contribute to ongoing scholarly activity and pedagogic development, as well as pursue (where applicable) a professionally facing practice and/or developing productive connections to the professional sector.
