General DiscussionEdit

  • 8/10: In case anyone is wanting to keep track there's a music administration wiki now as well.
  • 8/13: Question: is there a collated list of music fields with a jobs Wiki?
  • 8/14: The most complete list is here (all disciplines): Application Year 2017-18. For music, there are wikis for Theory/Composition, Musicology/Ethnomusicology, Piano, and now Music Administration. Last year there was a Percussion wiki but it didn't get used much and I'm not sure if it will continue into this year.
  • 9/25: Question: Can we add a counter like the Musicology Job Wiki for demographics?
  • 9/25: Done - added below. Please add any other categories that you would find useful to track. -5120j
  • 9/26: Could guidelines be given for what counts as "a recent PhD"?
  • 9/27: The musicology wiki has never spelled this out specifically so I'm not sure ... maybe, degree granted within the last three academic years? -5120j
  • 10/5: I've updated the counter to distinguish between DMAs and PhDs. You may need to change your response if you assumed "PhD" included all doctorates.
  • 10/6: From the moderator: Since there is no way that all 30-something people who have already voted are going to come back and update their votes, I've changed the wording to show that "PhD" included/includes both PhDs and DMAs. For next year's hiring cycle, I will separate out the degrees from the beginning, but for this year, trying to change it at this point will render the numbers meaningless. -5120j
  • 1/18/18: Any new ideas about getting reimbursement for travel expenses? I’m still trying to get reimbursed for traveling for a job interview over the summer. I submitted receipts immediately and this has worked in previous searches (except one). In this case, once in person and twice by email, the search chair said my request would be submitted to the dean.I followed up by email once a month for four consecutive months.  All of my correspondence has been friendly and cordial in both directions. Yet my last two emails received no response. Is there any way to go about this that does not seem pushy, or cause more embarrassment or awkwardness? Looking at it the other way: is there any reason that a college/university should stick by a commitment to an individual (a job applicant) who has absolutely no leverage over them? There's no such thing any more as expecting people or institutions to actually do what they're supposed to do? Is that the situation now?:  that candidates are expected to pay the expense of travel even when the opposite is claimed? 
  • 1/18/18 (2). The next time you follow up, I'd cc the dean and department chair.
  • 1/19 Sorry this has happened to you! They absolutely should pay if they promised reimbursement of your expenses. Have you been corresponding just with the search chair or with their or the department's admin assistant? If the former, I recommend trying to find the contact info for either the chair's/department's assistant or (better) the dean's assistant. Processing reimbursement requests/receipts is (likely) their job, not the search chair's. Maybe the assistant never got your receipts from the faculty member, or they got mis-filed/stuck in a pile of papers, or the office that cuts checks is waiting for some obscure piece of paperwork from you but no one thought to tell you. And at this point I'd try calling over email - though if it's someone you haven't contacted before, maybe email once and then follow up on the phone 1 or 2 days later. An email is too easy to ignore or let fall by the wayside. If it's awkward (and it probably will be), remember they are the ones making this awkward; you're making a perfectly reasonable request. Good luck!!
  • 1/19 (2)Thanks for your advice. But look, you people really don’t get it: once you are somehow neglected (by being thus “ghosted” for instance) in a professional situation, there’s no way out, because making anyone else aware of the neglect (or other mistreatment) is bound to make someone else look bad, and that will eventually come back to bite you. Those of us on the fringes can’t afford to even slightly irritate or even subliminally ruffle the feathers of anyone. If we did offend anyone (even while being “in the right”), we’d suffer the consequences probably without ever finding out how and when we suffered them.  (It’s all kept secret, including the passive aggressive abuse.) What a beautiful world. 
  • 1/22 I get feeling despondent and powerless, but in my experience, what you said 1/19 is simply not true. First of all, usually, the people in charge of reimbursement have nothing to do with the search at all—don't feel like this is a test. The search committee, and even accountants (har har), are human beings—they'll probably be moritifed that you were overlooked for so long, and will just feel apologetic to you, not angry for being uppity. This level of deference to the people in charge of the search is definitely a symptom of how much people in contingent and marginalized positions are often abused and traumatized for sure. But channel the most white-dude-entitled-senior-professor-emeritus you know, and (without being rude) stand up for yourself. <3

School-Specific DiscussionEdit

  • 8/24 I removed the listing for Pacific Lutheran University (Assistant Professor & Director of Jazz Studies) as it is outside the scope of this wiki. If anyone is interested, here is the job (deadline 11/1): Pacific Lutheran University
  • 8/24 (2) I wouldn't presume to do it myself, but perhaps an "Etc." category by itself is in order. I'm thinking of jobs that have tangential requirements for either theory or composition in the descriptions. The job above, with expertise in jazz theory/history among the desired interests, would then apply. 
  • 8/25 I do already post some jobs like this under "Theory/Performance, Etc." My rule of thumb is that the job has to require that the applicant has a degree in either Music Theory or Composition. If the job requires that the applicant have a degree in something else (Jazz, in the current example) with Music Theory or Composition as a secondary area (like as a doctoral minor field), I don't post it, since I believe that the primary audience for this wiki is people who hold a PhD or DMA in the two areas mentioned in the title (Music Theory and Composition). If I'm incorrect about the wiki audience and there is interest in tracking jobs where music theory and/or composition are more secondary - where the primary degree required is in performance or something else - I'm willing to change the current policy. But the number of jobs eligible for posting at that point will increase exponentially. Personally I think the wiki is more useful when its scope is kept narrowly defined. -5120j (moderator)
MacEwan U
  • 1/4  I have been wondering at this for a while: is it a waste of time applying to a Canadian institution as a U.S. citizen/resident if one isn't expressly invited to apply? I never see a non-Canadian/ Canada resident get a publicly posted job before. Please say I'm wrong about this...
  • 1/4 (2) It's hard to generalize, but in this particular posting it clearly states that Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. When in doubt you can email the contact in the posting: their response is usually telling. 
  • 1/5 OP here. I believe it's a legal requirement for Canadian institutions to employ Canadians as a preference. The wording at the end of the description is standard fare (much like diversity statements in the U.S.)
  • 1/25 But it's not unheard of for Americans or Europeans to get jobs in Canada. They'll take an exceptional American candidate over a Canadian one.  Although, any Canadians applying have also studied at the IVY leagues in the States and in Europe, so in the end, there isn't much difference in academic background. At McGill, most of the theory faculty are Americans. For composition, though, it tends to be mainly Canadians that get hired.
  • 1/26 Yes, Canadian citizens get preference, primarily in Composition hires. When I was an undergrad at McGill, the search for what is now Harman's job had piles of American applications, which, to quote a senior professor there, were "swept into the trash", and with great regret. That said, when I applied to the job at UToronto last year, as a Canadian with an Ivy League degree, I wasn't shortlisted. The in-person interviews went exclusively to Canadians with Canadian PhDs/DMAs. How's that for provincial?
  • 11/5 Can anyone provide more information on the Stetson search? Specifically I noticed that this year they have a tenure-track position, while in 2016 they posted a VAP, in 2015 a tenure-track, in 2014 a tenure-track, and in 2013 a tenure-track. Is this University's music theory area greatly expanding? Or are theorists leaving this position very quickly? If the latter is true, can anyone comment on why? 
  • 12/4 Can't comment specifically on Stetson, but there are a good number of schools where people come and go.  It's just the reality of the field.  There are also certain schools like Williams that offer the same visiting position year in and year out.  For Williams this is a way to hire people cheaply: to not pay them what they are owed: to take advantage of people. 
  • 12/4 That is good to know about Williams. Are there other jobs like Williams? As someone on the job market for the first time, and who also has a family, I would genuinely rather use my skills and experience from the PhD outside of academia than spend the time applying to positions that abuse workers like that. I don't mind teaching at a school that has a one-year replacement vacancy, or that needs someone last minute and it's too late to request/acquire a new line. But I don't want to drag my family across the country to a place that operates in a system like that.
Western Washington
  • 12/11 Says here that review for the Western Washington position begins on 12/15/17, but their job listing says 1/8/18. Anybody know where the 12/15 date came from? Just curious. Thanks.
  • 12/12 Not sure - I checked a couple sites and they all say 1/8. Probably just a typo. I fixed it above. -5120j
New England Conservatory (NEC)
  • 2/6 NEC doesn't have rank or tenure. Understanding that conditions will vary by institution, I have two questions about these types of positions: 1) What can one expect with regard to teaching load, research expectations, contract length, job security, and academic freedom? 2) Are salaries markedly different than those of tenure-granting institutions?
  • 2/8 I'm not familiar with NEC, but at similar institutions I have more knowledge of, I'd say it's something like this. Teaching load is high to moderately high. Research expectations are non-existent (although many faculty will do great research anyway, and may receive some support for it). Contract length is short-term, but many such positions offer virtual tenure in that you can expect reappointment. There are no explicit protections regarding academic freedom, but the administration probably isn't reading your stuff anyway. Salaries are highly variable—they can be competitive with tenure-granting institutions, but may not be.
University of Utah
  • 2/8 First time on the market, so I was just wondering... when a school like UU says to submit applications by 2/3 (that is, before 2/4) to be fully considered, but then requests additional materials from someone four days later, did the search committee really consider applications submitted by 2/3? Will there be a rolling request for additional materials? The two hiring committees I sat on as a student didn't begin compiling applications until the close date, so this timeline seems strange to me. Can anyone offer insight?
  • 2/8 (2): Trying to read the tea leaves of, and applying timeline-based logic to, an academic search will only bring you unnecessary anxiety and confusion; nothing good comes from it. It is possible that the school already had someone in mind for the job, perhaps a Visiting Prof or an adjunct. It is also possible that the search committee buckled down, divided up the applications, and was given the charge of coming up with shortlists in a matter of days. It is also possible that a combination of both scenarios could be in play, or one of many other possible situations. To your second question, it's also possible that they would ask for other materials on a rolling basis. When I was hired into my current position, they had already offered someone the job (I wasn't even part of the original pool of finalists), but that person said no to the job and here I am. In short, anything can happen or be true; however, most of the time the committee doesn't go back or do these later rounds on a rolling basis. At the risk of sounding cold (trust me, I've asked your question several times in the past), I would say that if you see on here that the search has advanced to additional materials or another type of later round, and there's not an email in your inbox asking for those materials, then just let it go and move on. Use the mental energy on something you enjoy :)
  • 2/9 For what it's worth, I was one of those who received an additional materials request, and I'm glad I wasn't the only one to notice something odd about the search. I was asked to respond to a set of written questions about music technology - something that was nowhere to be found in the original job advertisement. If the job was supposed to require that skill set, why not advertise it in the first place and potentially attract more applications from composers whose expertise is in music technology?
  • 2/9(2) - Above posters -- Are you talking about the theory position or the composition/theory position?
    • 2/10 This is the composition/theory position.
  • 2/14 Thank you for the kind words in response to the original post. I asked the original question, and I was referring to the theory position, not the composition/theory position.
Wheaton College
  • 2/13  Note that this is NOT the religious Wheaton College, which is a conservative Christian school in Illinois that offers a BM. This Wheaton is a secular liberal arts college in Massachusetts that offers a BA. The schools are unrelated. 
  • 2/15 Although this job doesn't really fit perfectly in any of the set job categories on this page (since it includes duties in theory, composition, and technology), I'm deleting the duplicate posting in the Composition/Technology category, so that all updates will stay in one place. -5120j
