Wilfrid Laurier University's Faculty of Music invites applications for an
Assistant Professor in Composition (tenure-track) to start July 1, 2021,
subject to budgetary approval. The Composition program at Laurier has a
long and distinguished history of facilitating student development in the
fundamentals of composition, in the creation of concert music, electronic
music, and music for new media, as well as in music improvisation and other
modes of performer-composer intersection and collaboration. Many of its
graduates have gone on to top-tier graduate schools and beyond into
established careers. More recently, the Composition program has added an
Integrated Musical Arts (IMA) concentration—a programmatic cluster of
courses and experiences that help students expand their creative tool-kit
with skills in song writing, composing for different media, concert
curating and production, and entrepreneurship. This facet of the program is
rich in its intersections with the Faculty’s undergraduate program in
Community Music; the expanded programmatic breadth is designed to better
prepare students for professional careers as multi-faceted creative

The successful candidate will have an established profile as a composer and
a reputation for being an excellent teacher, with experience teaching
studio and classroom composition at the undergraduate level. Given the
breadth of the concentrations in which they will be involved, the ideal
candidate will also have experience in at least two of the following: music
for visual media (dance/film/theatre/gaming), sound production, electronic
music, song writing, improvisation, performance across genres,
theory/analysis of non-classical music.

With a commitment to Indigenization and a commitment to equity, diversity,
inclusion, Laurier’s thriving community has a place for everyone.

Electronic applications will be accepted until Monday, March 12, 2021. If
you have any questions about the application process they can be addressed
to the Chair of the Faculty Appointments and Promotions Committee, Jessica
