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 visit:
