Job Description/Responsibilities:

The Department of Music, Bates College, in Lewiston, Maine, invites applications for a two year postdoctoral fellow for pedagogical innovation and curriculum renewal in the humanities funded by the Andrew W.

The ideal candidate will have combined strengths in music theory, psychology of music, and pedagogy and will assist the department in the innovative redesign of our four semester theory sequence.

Over the two-year period, the successful applicant will teach five music courses within the context of a highly integrated liberal-arts program of composition, performance, theory, ethnomusicology, and historical musicology. The candidate will teach three courses in 2015-2016 (one each in the fall and winter semesters and one in the five-week spring term), and two courses in 2016-2017 (one each in the fall and winter semesters), including core courses in our music theory curriculum, and at least one new course in the specialization of the candidate. We seek applicants whose teaching and research bridges musical skills and methodologies (from among theoretical, experimental, and fieldwork-based research, composition, and performance) and who can help us raise the cognitive component of our music theory course sequence. The halftime teaching load provides release time to help balance research and teaching. Funds for travel to conferences are also available. A completed doctorate in music cognition, composition, music theory, or a related field of music scholarship is expected, along with a serious commitment to professional achievement as a scholar.
