*Assistant Professor in Musicology/Ethnomusicology*

The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU seeks to fill a
tenure-track position of assistant professor in *Musicology/Ethnomusicology*
to commence September 1, 2017. We seek an interdisciplinary scholar in
musicology or ethnomusicology working in one of the fields of 20-21st
century American, African-American or Western music (art, jazz, and/or
popular traditions). We are interested in a candidate with broad historical
range who can teach music across periods outside of the specific area of
focus of his or her research. Possible thematic areas of study could
include race studies, diaspora, or music and migration.

The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in interdisciplinary
teaching (including the teaching of non-majors and students with little
technical or formal training in music) and in advising individualized
undergraduate and graduate research and arts programs. Assistant Professors
teach four courses per year and serve as an adviser for 20-25 students.

To be successful, a candidate needs to be able to design and teach
imaginative, innovative courses that elaborate and examine musical
questions in their historical and theoretical contexts, and in practice. The
ideal candidate will also have active interest in participation in the
co-curricular activities of the School.

*Qualifications:* Ph.D. in hand by time of appointment; demonstrated
excellence in teaching at the college or university level; and a strong
record of research and writing.

All application materials must be submitted electronically. *To apply,

Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a statement of
your teaching philosophy, a writing sample of 10-20 pages, a brief
description of three dream courses, and three letters of reference.

*Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2016, and will continue
until the position is filled.*

*For questions, please contact Gallatin Human Resources at
