Musicology, Assistant Professor full-time, tenure track
Location: Chestnut Hill, MA
Closes: December 15, 2013
Start date: September 1, 2014
Primary responsibility is teaching undergraduate courses in Western art music post 1750. The successful candidate will have a doctorate in musicology, a record of excellence in undergraduate teaching, a well developed research agenda, and will be able to demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to Boston College’s mission. The Boston College Music Department favors an integrated approach to the discipline and places Western music traditions within a broad cultural context that emphasizes the interdependence of theoretical approaches and practical music making. The ideal candidate will be encouraged to forge interdisciplinary links with other departments and centers at the University. While specialization in any area post 1750 will be considered, candidates with an interest in sacred music (broadly defined), and/or a willingness to help develop the department’s commitment to the innovative use of digital technologies in the classroom would be an advantage. Boston College is a Catholic university in the Jesuit tradition, and the candidate’s willingness to contribute to this educational mission will be regarded as an asset.
