We seek an outstanding, self-motivated Teaching Fellow to contribute to the education of exceptional future audio engineers and musicians on the BMus/BSc Music and Sound Recording (Tonmeister®) programme in the Department of Music and Sound Recording, from 1st September 2021.

Running since 1970, the Tonmeister programme is unique in the way that it combines study of audio engineering, music, and practical sound recording.  It has produced a stream of successful alumni, including winners of Oscars, Grammys and the Mercury Prize. Our graduates work across a wide cross-section of the audio industry, from product design to film music composition, and this alumnus network enables us to call upon current industry expertise in many areas.  Alumni are very keen to give something back to the programme, and our reunions are excellent networking opportunities.  The programme includes a Professional Training Year, and we have regular placements with many high-profile companies including Abbey Road Studios, Focusrite/Novation and Sky Post-Production.

The facilities available in the Department for teaching and research include: 3 recording studios containing high quality equipment including consoles from Studer, AMS-Neve and SSL; over 120 microphones for recording and technical measurement; an ITU-R BS 1116 standard listening room containing a 30-loudspeaker reproduction system; and a range of test and measurement hardware and software.  The Department is home to the Moog Sound Lab UK, and benefits from many links with the audio, video and computer games industries.

The University of Surrey Department of Music and Media is a top 10 UK University Department. It is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. The Department of Music and Media also includes degrees in Music, Creative Music Technology, and Film and Video Production Technology.  Research Centres within the department include the International Guitar Research Centre and the Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR).  Both the IoSR and the FVPT research is closely allied with the Centre for Vision and Speech Signal Processing (CVSSP) in the faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

Potential applicants are encouraged to contact Russell Mason ( or Prof. Tony Myatt ( for an informal discussion about the role.
