Research Associate (AHRC Project: Music, Migration and Mobility)

The Music, Migration and Mobility project brings fresh methodological approaches to the study of the experiences, musical lives and subsequent impact on British musical culture of musicians who came from Nazi-ruled Europe in the 1930s and '40s. The project will investigate and map the journeys of approximately 30 musicians as they negotiated and helped to form aspects of British musical life in the post-war period. The project will also probe the practical challenges of performing and mediating their compositions-which are defined by multiple trans-national cultural influences and traditions-through a programme of experimental rehearsal workshops and concerts and explore the cultural value of this music for contemporary audiences.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in music, history or a relevant subject area; the ability to read accurately manuscript and printed 20th century archival materials in German and translate them into English.
