Sep 16, 2019Full time
The Department of Music at Colorado College invites applications for a tenure-track position in ethnomusicology at the assistant professor level beginning August 2020. We seek candidates with a contemporary-topic focus, abreast of the latest methodological developments in the field, and open to integrative and collaborative teaching in a liberal arts environment. The candidate should be conversant with social, cultural, and structural elements of musical practices with a commitment to offer innovative exploration of these areas in the classroom through inclusive pedagogical practices. Situated within a thriving performing arts program, courses to be offered by this position will expose students to diverse cultures and identities as well as upper-level seminars in their areas of expertise. We especially encourage applications from candidates who can contribute music courses to the college’s Indigenous Studies program. This position will also contribute to the core curriculum of the music department as well as participate in the broader General Education requirements of the college. As an academic model for our students, we seek candidates with an active and robust scholarly agenda. The College actively promotes a dynamic and inclusive environment in which students and employees of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives can learn and work. Applicants should describe the ways in which they can contribute to this goal in their cover letter. One distinguishing feature of Colorado College is its Block plan, in which professors teach, and students take, one course at a time. This model lends itself to experiential and community-engaged learning as well as opportunities for field-based courses. Candidates whose ideas for teaching at Colorado College include such possibilities are encouraged to speak to them in their cover letter. Colorado College is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the diversity of its community. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation in our educational programs and activities or our employment practices.
