Music: Visiting Assistant Professor of Music - 000080M

The Department of Music at the University of Richmond invites applications for a full-time non-renewable one-year term appointment as visiting assistant professor in music theory with a focus on popular music (broadly construed) beginning in August 2019.

We seek candidates with a commitment to and enthusiasm for teaching major and non-major students in an undergraduate liberal arts context. The successful candidate will oversee a theory curriculum that includes courses in harmony, musicianship and analysis, and offer courses in a secondary area such as popular music composition, music industry, arranging, leading popular music ensembles, and/or song writing. The teaching load is three courses each semester. Completion of PhD is expected prior to appointment.

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and 92% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.”

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information about the Music department at the University of Richmond, see
