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.
