The Department of Music at New York University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin September 1, 2014, pending budgetary and administrative approval.
We seek a dynamic and forward-thinking colleague in the area of ethnomusicology, broadly conceived. The ideal candidate will demonstrate an active research agenda, excellence in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels, and an ongoing reciprocal relationship with the community about which s/he writes. Regional specialization is open, but we are especially interested in candidates whose ethnographic work involves the global south and whose theoretical engagements complement the department's strengths in other areas.
The study of music at NYU takes place in an intellectually flexible, multi-disciplinary department. We enjoy ongoing collaborative relationships with numerous Humanities and Social Science departments and area studies programs, such as Anthropology, Performance Studies, and Social and Cultural Analysis. We seek colleagues who are eager for interdisciplinary conversation and opportunities for collaborative teaching and research.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. or expect to hold one by the starting date. Applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and the names of three references. Review will continue until the position is filled, but applications received before December 15, 2013, will receive the fullest reading. NYU is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
