The Department of Music at Binghamton University (State University of New York) invites applications for a full-time Lecturer in Musicology for a three-year term to begin in Fall 2022, with the possibility of reappointment at the end of the term.
The successful candidate will be an engaged and inspiring educator of graduate and undergraduate students, and will teach a 3-3 load of non-major, music-major, and masters-level courses that span Western classical and popular music. In the first year, this will include a graduate research seminar (Fall), an upper-level undergraduate elective (Spring), a non-major popular music survey (both semesters), and a non-major Western classical music history course (both semesters).
The Department seeks candidates with documented excellence in teaching and course design, an approach to curriculum design that disrupts canons and integrates historically excluded groups and repertoires, and an ability to nurture critical thinking, listening, and writing skills.
The Binghamton University Music Department offers graduate and undergraduate degrees, including the Master of Music degree with emphasis in History & Literature, Composition, Conducting, Collaborative Piano, Instrumental Performance, and Vocal Performance; the Master of Music in Opera, the Bachelor of Music in Performance, and the Bachelor of Arts in Music.
The department also serves students from all majors across the university as part of Harpur College of Arts and Sciences.
The Music Department has a strong commitment to hearing and amplifying the voices of those who have been historically excluded in musical practices and pedagogy. Members of historically excluded groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
