The Department of Music and Dance at Swarthmore College invites
applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant or
Associate Professor beginning with the Fall semester of 2017. We seek
candidates with excellent classroom presence, a broad range of research and
teaching interests, and a commitment to engaging in cross-departmental
collaboration.  Areas of specialization are open as we plan to expand and
enhance our Department's current curricular reach. Scholarly interest at
the intersection of music and dance is particularly welcome. Performance
expertise is not required, but would be of interest. Tenure-track faculty
members have a 3/2 teaching load (which will move to 2/2 in 2020) and enjoy
a generous leave policy. A Ph.D. in Musicology, Ethnomusicology, or a
closely related field is expected by August 31, 2017.
