Johns Hopkins University Assistant Professor of Musicology (Ethnomusicology) in Baltimore, Maryland
The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University seeks an Assistant Professor of Musicology with a specialization in ethnomusicology. Duties include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses as well as advising Masters in Musicology and Doctor of Musical Arts students.
The initial appointment will be for a period of three years, with the expectation of reappointment and the opportunity for promotion. Exceptionally qualified candidates may be considered for appointment to the rank of Professor or Associate Professor. Peabody does not offer tenure.
The Department of Musicology plays an integral role in the education of students across the conservatory. Undergraduates complete a three-semester survey and an upper-level elective. Those interested in additional work in musicology can pursue the Minor in Musicology. Graduate course offerings include a broad range of seminars that reflect the wide-ranging interests of our faculty. In addition to teaching at the conservatory, faculty in the Department of Musicology have the opportunity to teach students at the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus through the Peabody at Homewood program.
The ideal candidate will be an effective and versatile teacher, an active scholar, and a community-minded colleague willing to contribute through departmental, conservatory, and university-wide service. The area of specialization within the field of ethnomusicology is open. We encourage applications from candidates whose work engages with scholarship and theory on decolonization, broadly construed, who are eager to teach conservatory students from diverse backgrounds, and whose teaching interests will enrich and complement our current course offerings.
The start date is July 1, 2022, and the PhD must be in hand prior to this date.
