The Department of Music at Princeton University invites applications for a part-time lecturer for spring 2018. Responsibilities include teaching one undergraduate course, grading, and holding office hours. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated ability to teach an electronic composition workshop class, in the context of the traditional sound studio. Emphasis will be on the student's creative work, composing both "fixed media" works and live electronic/laptop music. Topics to be covered include musique concrte, studio microphone techniques, sampling, MIDI programming in a DAW, software synthesis, and analog hardware synthesis. Each week should include listening assignments and composition exercises. Students will come in with knowledge of audio programming in Max/MSP and ChucK, but not necessarily any familiarity with traditional electronic studio techniques. The lecturer will be responsible for two 80-minute classes per week for 12 weeks. (Tuesday/Thursday from 1:30 to 2:50 pm; classes begin February 6, 2018.) Interested applicants should apply online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/5204. Applications must include a cover letter and current curriculum vitae. Please list the names and contact information for three references as part of the application document. The Department of Music will request letters only for the finalists. Due to the volume of applications, the Department will contact only candidates selected for an interview. Essential Qualifications: Candidates must have a bachelor's degree and teaching experience. Preferred Qualifications: Preference will be given to candidates carrying an MFA or advanced degree, or equivalent experience. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
