The Department of Music at Emory University, Atlanta, GA invites applications for a tenure-track composer at the rank of assistant or associate professor. The area of specialization is open, but the ideal candidate will be a dynamic composer of exceptional merit who presents a captivating portfolio of work and creative engagement in national and international arenas. We seek a program builder who can bring coherence to a composition curriculum and a vision for the program’s future engagement with other tracks of our music major and other programs across the campus. We welcome applications from composers who have a compelling vision for a program of compositional study in a dynamic liberal arts research institution, and a commitment to teaching undergraduate composers using new media, and also in more traditional, acoustic domains. The successful candidate will teach a range of composition courses that could include: (1) studio composition, (2) electro-acoustic composition, (3) composition-related courses such as orchestration and counterpoint, (4) composition courses for non-majors in the broader liberal arts curriculum, and (5) advanced composition seminars.
Qualifications: PhD or DMA is required. Evidence of creative achievement and successful teaching experience are essential, as is a commitment to the study of music in a liberal arts context. Rank: Appointment at a level commensurate with experience, either Associate or Assistant Professor, tenure-track.
Please submit a letter of application outlining the candidate's qualifications; a CV; a teaching statement reflecting upon the candidate’s experience and vision regarding the teaching and mentorship of students from diverse backgrounds; and three letters of reference. No further materials will be considered at this stage in the process.
