Minimum of a master’s degree required. Doctorate preferred, or equivalent combination of education and experience.

Job Description/Responsibilities:

We seek competencies in industry-standard software platforms, knowledge of hardware, and possibly a background in commercial music, to teach in our theory/analysis curriculum and to help develop course(s) in multimedia composition/recording. In addition, we seek a breadth of interests and competencies and a passion for teaching music within a liberal arts framework. Other responsibilities of the position will include periodically teaching an interdisciplinary First-Year Seminar, intended for the general student population; a Senior Seminar for majors; and various departmental service courses as needed. Familiarity with at least one non-Western system of music is desirable.

We work together as a community of musicologists, ethnomusicologists, theorists, composers, and performers, and value each other’s contributions to music. We welcome a colleague who will join a vital academic department in which different music systems are reflected in the courses we teach. As we are carrying on a college-wide curriculum review, this new colleague will help shape the Music Department of the future.
