Job Description/Responsibilities:

The Jacobs School of Music seeks candidates for a two-year, full-time visiting assistant professor/post-doctoral resident scholar in music theory for the academic years 2019-2021. The resident scholar will teach one course per semester, and during the first year will also offer a series of workshops in their area of expertise. In addition, they will be expected to conduct an active program of research, attending and participating in scholarly conferences, submitting articles to academic journals, and/or developing a longer-term project.

We envision this position as a way of enriching our department while providing an environment in which an emerging scholar can develop their work. Preference will be given to candidates whose research interests complement and diversify those of the department. The scholar will work with a faculty mentor to develop a concrete plan for engagement with the Indiana University community, and to launch a productive and successful career in the field of music theory.

In addition, candidates should address how residency at Indiana University would positively contribute to their research agenda. The online application will also ask for the name, title, email address, and other information for three reference providers. An email with instructions about uploading letters of reference will be sent automatically to each of the reference providers immediately after the application is submitted. Please do not send other materials until requested to do so.
