University of Maryland, School of Music:
„Two full-time lecturers (musicology and ethnomusicology)“
Deadline: May 11, 2015
The University of Maryland School of Music seeks two full-time lecturers, one in musicology and one in ethnomusicology for the 2015-16 academic year (subject to institutional funding). The successful candidates will teach five courses during the academic year, will have PhDs in hand by August 2015, and will be dynamic teachers with significant classroom experience.
The successful musicology candidate will be expected to teach two parts of the undergraduate music majors‘ history survey course (Antiquity-1600 and 1600- ca.1810), a general education course in music appreciation, and a survey of symphonic or chamber or, perhaps, piano music for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. The candidate will also teach a graduate seminar on a topic of their choice to complement the specializations of the current faculty.
The successful ethnomusicology candidate will be expected to teach „Selected Music Cultures of the World“ (a survey course that includes both music majors and non-majors), and „Popular Music of Black America,“ for non-music majors. In the spring, they might also teach an „Area Studies in Ethnomusicology“ course in an area of their choice (to complement the specializations of the current faculty).
Both positions will involve the supervision of teaching assistants and service on examination panels and thesis/dissertation committees. We especially encourage candidates able to teach across the two disciplines.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Interested candidates should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references with contact information (mailing address, telephone numbers, and email) to Prof. Richard King (rgking -at- umd.edu), for musicology; and to Prof. J. Lawrence Witzleben (jlwitz -at- umd.edu), for ethnomusicology. Please be sure to write „Musicology Position“ or „Ethnomusicology Position“ as the subject line in your email. Do not send publications, letters of reference, or other materials at this time.
For best consideration, please apply by May 11.
