School of Music, University of British Columbia:
„Assistant Professor“ (tenure-track)
Begin: 1 July 2015
The School of Music at the University of British Columbia seeks to appoint a musicologist to a full time tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning 1 July 2015. The Musicology Division is an integral part of a dynamic School of Music, situated in a beautiful, culturally diverse metropolis, that offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs in music, including M.A. and Ph.D. programs in musicology, music theory, and ethnomusicology.
We seek an accomplished, ambitious scholar with expertise in the music and culture of the nineteenth century and an additional field of interest complementary to the interests of current faculty (such as film music, popular music, critical theory, cultural studies, new media). Candidates should demonstrate aptitude for innovative teaching, use of new technologies, and collaborative curriculum development within the School of Music and in interdisciplinary contexts. Teaching duties include undergraduate courses for music and non-music majors, graduate seminars, and graduate student supervision. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active program of research, teaching, graduate supervision, and service to the School and University.
Candidates must have successfully defended the Ph.D. by July 2015, and demonstrate achievement or potential for high quality research and teaching. Applicants should apply online by 15 October 2014 through the UBC Faculty careers website: www.hr.ubc.ca/careers/faculty-careers and they must be prepared to upload (in the following order): a letter of application, CV outlining primary and secondary research interests and teaching experience, and short descriptions (150-250 words each) outlining one upper-level undergraduate and one graduate course the candidate could offer to enrich our programs, two samples of scholarly work representing the candidate’s expertise and versatility. Additional writing samples, course syllabi, and evidence of teaching effectiveness may be requested at a later date.
In addition, three confidential letters of recommendation must be sent directly by referees via email to musicology.search at ubc.ca by the same deadline. Review of applications may continue until the position is filled. For more information about the School of Music, please visit www.music.ubc.ca.
The position is subject to final budgetary approval. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity and diversity within its community. We especially welcome applications from members of visible minority groups, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply; however, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada.
