Applications received by December 1, 2021 will be assured full consideration, though the search will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.

The teaching load for this position will be 4 courses per year (2 fall/2 spring). The department welcomes applications from candidates who contribute to the Department’s stated priorities for diversity, inclusion, and equity.
Applicants must have completed the PhD in ethnomusicology (or a related field) by the date of appointment, and have a demonstrated commitment to excellence in research and teaching.
