Anticipated start date is August 15, 2023. Responsibilities may include: teaching/developing undergraduate and graduate courses in string education and other areas consistent with candidate’s expertise; engaging in leadership and mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students in music education; supervising student teachers and early field experiences of music education majors; advising graduate level research projects, theses, and dissertations; recruiting undergraduate and graduate string music education students; facilitating outreach activities in the schools and community; promoting collaborations with artistic community stakeholders within and outside the university; and maintaining a research/scholarly agenda commensurate with expectations of a research extensive university.
The candidate should be poised to engage with students, faculty, staff, alumni, PreK-12 educators, and community partners to build collaborations and interdisciplinary initiatives within the School of Music and with other departments across, for example, the College of Arts and Sciences, the broader university community, Ohio State’s five regional campuses, and other organizations in Ohio and beyond. Candidates should have demonstrated a commitment to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
