Stony Brook University invites applications for the College of Arts and Sciences' Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access (IDEA) Fellows Program (2022/2023), a full-time, 12-month, non-tenure-track faculty position at the lecturer level at the annual salary of $70,000 including full benefits, to commence Fall 2022. The fellow will be a part of a mentored research environment and, with a successful and demonstrated contribution to inclusion, diversity, and equity, will be invited to join the tenure-track faculty at Stony Brook University after two years.
Stony Brook prides itself on attracting an incredibly diverse student body, including many first-generation immigrants and first-generation college students. Recent studies have shown that Stony Brook is one of the top universities in the U.S. for supporting the upward mobility of its students.
We are interested in scholars with the potential to offer a critical perspective based on experience in or understanding of groups historically underrepresented in higher education in these particular areas of interest: critical race theory, globalization, health disparities, sustainability/ climate justice, aging, racial justice. Multiple fellows will be hired so this list reflects a broad swath of interest for a pool of fellows.
The Department of Music is one of several departments participating in the IDEA Fellows Program. We offer degrees focusing on music scholarship, composition, and performance. The faculty in each of these areas are active scholars, composers, and performers who use their expertise to provide a rigorous and cutting-edge educational experience for undergraduate and graduate students.
During the 2020-21 academic year, the Department developed a new framework for undergraduate and graduate curricula. By explicitly decentering the European-derived classical tradition and positioning it as one among many musical cultures shaping the world, this framework invites engagement with these diverse musical cultures, including popular and jazz traditions in the US and abroad. The IDEA fellow would join a Department with rich interdisciplinary connections, and a faculty committed to diversifying music scholarship and to providing flexible and inclusive teaching.
