APPOINTMENT OF EDITOR OF RMA MONOGRAPHS SERIES
The Royal Musical Association seeks to appoint an editor for its Monographs series. The appointment arises as a result of the election of the current editor, Professor Mark Everist, to the presidency of the Association with effect from September 2011.
The RMA publishes a series of research monographs supported by funds made available from the estate of Thurston Dart. Its purpose is to provide a medium for specialized investigations of a topic, concept or repertory -- studies of a kind that would not normally be feasible for commercial publishers and that would be too long for most periodicals. The Monographs are published for the RMA by Ashgate Publishing. The series first began publishing in 1985 and has published 18 volumes to date. The current ambition is to publish at a rate of one volume a year, though not on a regular schedule.
The editor of RMA Monographs is ex officio a member of the Publications Committee of the RMA Council and is entitled to attend Council meetings. The editor is expected to be a member of the RMA during their tenure (though not necessarily at the time of application). There is no fixed term, but as usual the first year of appointment is probationary. The post attracts an honorarium of £600 p.a. in 2012 (£560 pro rata for any portion of 2011).
The person specification for the editor of RMA Monographs is as follows: good honours or higher degree; a record of publications; experience of editing; a knowledge of historical musicology; a knowledge of the wider academic community. A detailed job specification is available on request from the Executive Officer, Jeffrey Dean <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>>, who welcomes expressions of interest. Formal applications, including a letter outlining ambitions for the series as well as levels of experience and expertise, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact details of two referees, may be made by 31 July 2011, either by post or by e-mail (attachments in .doc or .pdf format), to the Executive Officer (contact details in the signature panel below). Interviews are expected to be held in London directly before the RMA Dent Medal Study Day and AGM on 17 September 2011.
