Part-time Lecturer in Choral Music

Job description

The School of Music at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia seeks to fill a part-time lecturer position in choral music for the 2018–2019 academic year. This part-time, nine-month appointment begins in August 2018 and ends in May 2019.

Responsibilities for this appointment include teaching/conducting one mixed choir, the Georgia Tech Chorale; and pending qualifications, one treble chorus, the Georgia Tech Women’s Choir. Knowledge of collegiate repertoire and recruitment abilities are essential. Successful college teaching experience is preferred. The Georgia Tech School of Music currently supports four academic choral ensembles. Both the Women’s Choir and Chorale consist of students from all six colleges within the institute (including music technology majors), and representing undergraduate and graduate students. Repertoire includes large works with orchestra as well as octavos and smaller works, both accompanied and unaccompanied. GT choral ensembles meet in the newly-constructed West Campus Village Building that includes rehearsal space with a state-of-the-art recording studio.

The School of Music offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in music technology, along with a music minor, that develop students’ musical, technical, and theoretical skills, challenging them to transform the ways in which we create, perform, analyze, disseminate, and learn about music. In collaboration with the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology, the School’s faculty and students conduct cutting edge research in areas such as music cognition, music information retrieval, data sonification, robotic musicianship, and STEAM education. In addition, the School houses a variety of performing ensembles that attract the participation of over 900 Georgia Tech students per semester.

Applicants must possess a Masters in music, music education, or in an allied field. Candidates with a Bachelors Degree will also be considered if they have significant professional experience.

Review of applications will begin May 20, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. Interested individuals should e-mail the following materials to [email protected] as a single PDF file:

  1. Cover letter describing your interest in the position and relevant experience;
  2. Curriculum vitae;
  3. Name, address (including e-mail), and telephone number of three academic/professional references.
