  • 12/2 Moderator note: Continuation of failed search from last year.
  • (Nov 21) Anyone have inside info on this situation? They ran the same search last year (but without the vague "vision statement" requirement) and it failed. The title of the position this time and last is exactly the former title of their current visiting lecturer (who's still listed as ABD). Does anyone else suspect they're just wasting our time over some bureaucratic technicalities? (I know, I know... "sometimes the inside candidate doesn't get the job"... but come on.)
  • 11/22 No info on this particular search, but last two TT hires took positions elsewhere in fairly short order, so take that for what it's worth. Failed search last year much more likely due to internal politics than some long scheme to hire an inside candidate (speaking as someone who was a finalist for a different failed search last year).

Participate in departmental meetings and on faculty committees. Serve as Chair of the Department on a rotational basis. Fulfill other administrative duties, which may include directing the NEC Intercultural Institute.
  • Qualifications: Dedicated teacher and scholar with a record of successful collegiate experience, research activity, and ability to lead. Strong preference for a PhD in Ethnomusicology and demonstrated expertise in an area of western music. A background in performance is essential.
  • Application: Submit a letter of interest, CV, and the names and contact information of three professional references. Letter should specify ways in which applicant will complement the current roster of faculty.
  • The priority deadline for these materials is 1 November 2016.
  • 10/8/16: A music history professor with a PhD in ethnomusicology and a background in performance. I'm confused. Also, what type of position is this? Tenure-track, one-year, etc.?
  • 10/8/16: I thought the announcement was strange, too. According to this announcement, the position is not tenure-track. https://chroniclevitae.com/jobs/0000335671-01
  • 10/9/16: The announcement isn't worded as clearly as it could be, but it's not all that strange. As a conservatory, NEC focuses on performers, so they want a scholar who can play. (Too many "pure" scholars" haven't a clue how to talk to, let alone teach and mentor, performers.) There are a number of outstanding scholar/performers around the country right now. I suppose NEC is trying to catch lightning in a bottle, looking for an Ethno PhD who can also cover a Western classical course or two.
  • 10/25 An NEC Music History faculty representative will be attending the Society for Ethnomusicology conference in November, and he will be available for meetings to discuss this position and the Music History Department.

  • 10/18 - Does anyone know if this search is still active, since the position announcement is not available at the site listed above?
  • 10/19 (Moderator note) - Since the job listing posted to AMS-L on 10/17 was slightly different (and has a different, earlier, deadline) than the above one as posted online on 10/7, I think they're probably revising the online post and it will reappear shortly. I'll update the URL when it comes back online, and in the meantime I've updated the above post in bold to reflect the job as advertised on AMS-L. It's also unclear if this is still an open rank job as it was originally, or if it's just Assistant Professor now.
  • 10/19 the link above is wrong: https://ejobs.umd.edu/ gets you to the job posting. As of last night the announcement wasn't posting there and I e-mailed a friend on faculty there who tells me there is a glitch in the system that they are working on fixing asap. The job description is listed on the school of music home page: http://www.music.umd.edu/
  • 10/20 I'm so confused - the PDF on the School of Music site (now linked above) has the 11/14 deadline again. And as of this morning the job is still missing from the https://ejobs.umd.edu/ site, so it's hard to know which deadline is authoritative.
  • 10/20 (2) The person I know in the department there let me know the link is fixed on the jobs site. S/he also clarified that this is an Assistant Prof. job, not open rank, but they are open to people other than newly minted Ph.D.s with some prior experience. But they are definitely looking entry level rather than mid-career.
  • 10/21 (Moderator again) Thank you! Looks like they settled on Nov. 14 as the deadline. I've updated the page accordingly and posted the link to the Ejobs site.

  • Position Title: Assistant Professor of Music History and Theory
  • Position Type: Faculty
  • Job Type: Full Time
  • Tenure Track or Term: Tenure-Track
  • Position Summary: The Department of Music in the College of Arts and Letters at The University of Tampa invites applications for a tenure track position in Music History and Theory at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August 2017.
  • Primary teaching responsibilities will include courses in music history and theory for majors, courses suited to non-music majors such as Music Appreciation, Fundamentals, World Music or Jazz History, or other course offerings that would serve departmental needs.
  • Responsibilities will include an undergraduate teaching load of 12 credit hours in a 15 week semester. The candidate is expected to produce published scholarship and/or creative work appearing in peer reviewed settings, and service that includes advising and recruiting students, and other service to the department, college, university and broader community.

  • Qualifications: PhD or DMA required (advanced ABD candidates considered). Evidence of successful teaching at the college level. Evidence of scholarly productivity and publications.
  • Special Instructions to Applicants: Applicants should be prepared to include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, statement of research interest, copy of terminal degree transcripts and work sample. Applicants should include in the work sample attachment a sample video recording (secure link to an online source such as YouTube or Vimeo) of conducting. Instructions for the recording: The video should contain two segments - a 10-15 minute unedited rehearsal and a 10-15 minute unedited performance segment with the camera facing the conductor. Links may be provided on document and attached. Please include a statement of vision for an orchestra program in a private liberal arts university. In addition, applicants will be required to enter name and email address for three references providers who can address the candidate's teaching experience.
  • Posting Date: 08-15-2016
  • Moderator note 8/16 - I think the requests for a conducting video and a statement of vision for an orchestral program were included in error. I'll update the above listing if/when the job posting is changed.
  • 8/22 Language about conducting has been removed (although they also removed the request for references, possibly accidentally). Above ad is edited accordingly.
  • Also posted at Music Theory/Composition 2016-2017
  • 9/28 Interested applicants beware: this posting doesn't mention three letters of recommendation, but these ARE required, and they can't be sent through Interfolio. The online application system sends out requests to referees. My referees were caught unawares, since the posting didn't mention anything about references, and I didn't know to ask them in advance. 
  • 10/1: This may be a late, but, in reference to the comment made on 9/28, I *think* you can use Interfolio. When uploading the letters of rec. in the documents section of the application, you have to use the email address interfolio assigns to each letter in your dossier. When looking at your LORs in your dossier, left-click on the name of the recommender (the "Recommendation from Prof. X"), and a text bubble will appear prompting you to "Edit Document." Page down a bit, and you'll eventually see "document email." It'll be the recommender's name with a sequence of letters and numbers, followed by @interfolio.com. Use those email addresses when uploading the LOR information. You'll get email notifications from Interfolio to send those individually, but I usually go to the Interfolio home page and click on "applications." It'll have all three or four letters waiting to be checked out, and I send them all in one shot. I just applied to UT using this method, and it appears to have worked. I just got confirmation that the emails were sent. I believe this method works for any general e-application. I hope this helps, but please let me know if I'm mistaken! 
  • 10/5: Job posted on Chronicle and HigherEdJobs.com, despite "Review of applications will begin October 1." I don't think the opening was advertized very broadly before that (I only ever saw it here).
  • 10/10: In response to 10/1: thank you! This is hugely helpful for all future applications that use their own submission form. 
  • 10/19 ^^^ You bet! Good luck out there.

  • 10/19 (1) Were any other Jewish applicants frustrated that interviews for Western Michigan and UHawai'i were announced and instantly filled on Yom Kippur? x2
    • 10/19 (2) I was extremely frustrated about the U Hawaii one. The Western Michigan one was put up a week earlier over Rosh Hashanah. In my opinion, it gives an edge to people who are not practicing Jews. Perhaps it was on purpose, but more likely a sad oversight on the part of AMS.
    • 10/19 (1) Yes, it does seem like an AMS oversight. I wrote an anonymous message in their online suggestions box, politely requesting that they watch out for high holidays in future. Maybe if more of us let them know, they'll be more conscientious about this next year.

GENERAL DISCUSSION Edit

Musicology/Ethnomusicology 2016-17 Wiki Moderators: 5120j (5120janon@gmail.com) and Hybridist.

  • A few comments from 5120j:
1. My rule of thumb for deciding which jobs to post is: "COULD an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" Not the more narrow question "WILL an ethno/musicologist fill this post?" So, this means I will post more general "humanities" jobs, and positions (mostly at small schools) looking for someone to teach music history/appreciation but also direct an ensemble/teach applied lessons/etc. (If the most important part of the job seems to be the ensemble directing/applied lessons and music history/appreciation is an add-on, I don't post it.)
2. I post almost the entire text of the job ad so that if any changes are made later, they can be noticed and noted. The ads also usually disappear from the institution's website after the application deadline has passed, so it's helpful to preserve them here. And it's very instructive to see how the winning candidate did and didn't fit the job as it was advertised. I do usually excise the description of the hiring school/department/facilities and the EOE boilerplate, but I leave the rest of it as-is. Removing anything more feels like editorializing on my part.
3. I don't have a current membership to CMS/MVL or SEM so if jobs are posted only in those locations, I won't see them. I don't think we've missed too many in the last few years though, since most jobs are advertised fairly widely.
4. My anon email is 5120janon at gmail, and I welcome comments and questions about the wiki and its moderation this year. I'm not a musicologist of any type and am not (and will not be) on the market myself, but I have a professional interest in the ethno/musicology job market.
  • 8/27 Question: I like to read the wiki through news feeds. I can't find the RSS or atom for this wiki; even if I append ?=rss or atom, it doesn't work. How could I access the news feed?
    • Click on the "Subscribe to RSS Feed for This Page" link under Recent Activity above.
  • 9/28 So far, I see 4 jobs that will accept a DMA rather than a PhD, but that nonetheless appear to be primarily musicological. Do others here have any thoughts or insights on this? Is this a new trend?
  • 11/1 Some statistical info: 100th job posted on October 31 this year; in 2015 we hit 100 on November 19 and in the 2014-15 season, the wiki didn't reach 100 until February 11.


  • 11/28 Civil Discussion about Gender / Sexuality / Race in Hiring
  • I am a white male and becoming extremely discouraged about hiring practices. I have now witnessed negative selection twice, based entirely on the gender of the candidate – the first time as a member of a search committee, and the second to my face by a member of the search committee. In the first, the SC member said of a highly qualified candidate, that they were not interested because "we are going to hire a woman." The second was similarly blunt. A tenured faculty member at a well-respected institution began to encourage me to apply for position that was opening up at their instutition, but then said, "actually, we are planning to hire a woman, so perhaps not." A gay friend of mine––and yes, I know how absurd that sounds coming from an anonymous writer on the internet––has told me that he feels like his "gay card" can be powerful in hiring. I, probably like most of us on here, am left-leaning, invested in social justice issues, and committed to equality. But when faced with such blatant dismissal on the one hand and the bitterly competitive market on the other, I don't what to think. I don't know how to fold these experiences into my committment to equality – that is, I'm not sure that my committment to equality means that I should accept these experiences as just and equitable. (I'm also fairly sure that it is illegal, although almost impossible to prove.) I get the sense that this sort of selection is "understood" to be happening, but that actually discussing it openly is academic suicide, regressively patriarchal, or otherwise impolitic, especially considering the recent rise of white nationalists, male chauvinists, and other such trolls to prominence in the US. Is it possible to discuss this with civility, whether anonymously or openly? Is there already published work (think-pieces or research) on this that anyone can recommend? Are my anecdotes not representative of the whole? Or are they representative, but praiseworthy?
  • 11/28 I've been on a # of scs and have never seen anything like this.  Yes, there's certainly (appropriate) pressure to develop diverse pools, and it's true that hiring a white male out of such a pool might occasion a "why this guy" conversation with a dean, but I have never been on an sc where we felt we were to fulfill a pre-ordained outcome.  I'm at a SLAC, so maybe it's not representative.  I would take both of these concerns to the HR depts of the institutions (or in the case where you were a sc member, perhaps to a dean)  and would expect it to be handled competently and confidentially.  
  • 11/29 My response to that would be to say that this is a great time for some self reflection. I understand that it feels unfair to be passed over by jobs due to reasons that seemingly have nothing to do with the quality of your scholarship. However, if you are really committed to social justice and bringing previously marginalized folks into positions of power within the university (and greater society), how would you propose we go about doing it, other than to make concerted efforts to hire those who have traditionally been marginalized? The whole reason there is a push for this is because the academy is finally beginning to take seriously the fact that there are systems of inequality within the university itself. I view it as an effort at leveling the playing field, which for someone like you, who historically has been most "hire-able," may feel like you are being slighted. But for me personally, I feel that being committed to social justice also means being commited to it when it is not convenient or advantageous for me, when my own positions of privilege are put in check. The examples you give indicate a really uninformed and essentializing way of approaching diversity initiatives; but I still view the university's efforts to make departments more inclusive a positive step, even if that means I may be passed over for a job in favor of someone who brings something else to the table. To me, it is a necessary, although at times imperfect, effort.
  • 11/30 Yes, of course this happens, but as with most small fixes to structural inequality, it can feel really unfair to be on the receiving end of it. Some committees do indeed engage in this sort of behavior to counteract structural biases and neglect of attention to these issues that have resulted in entire departments that are uniformly straight, white men and people tend to hire people who are most similar to themselves. When I was on the market, I interviewed for a department that was exclusively men (10 faculty, 10 men) and I later heard that every candidate they brought to campus was a woman. Clearly they noted that they had a problem far too late to address it more incrementally. Similarly, I think the discrimination still goes in the other direction. How many departments still won't hire people who deviate from some ill-defined norm, such as gender performance or (dis-)ability? How many job ads for some specialization are actually written with a "diversity hire" in mind, even though not all queer people choose to study gender and sexuality and not all African American scholars choose to work on hip-hop, for example? It goes in all directions, and I think it's probably best to reorient our views of the job market away from a discourse of fairness. There's nothing fair about this process.
