- 11/7 Has anyone figured out how to just use the names of references in Interfolio? The way it's set up it looks like you have to submit letters or you can't apply.
- 11/7 (2) It does not appear this way to me. It appears that one can request letters as one can with any other Interfolio-based application. What is ambiguous is whether they want letters by the 15th or just contact info of referees.
- 11/7 (original poster) Yes, but they also have a section to just upload one document with the contact. This makes me think you don't need to have letters submitted, but the way the system is set up, you have to request the letters anyway, even if you just want to upload a contact document, or you won't be able to submit (because those references are configured as "required").
- 11/7 (2 again) My apologies: yes, I just saw the upload section for a sheet with contact info. I'm hoping the search committee offers some clarification.
- 11/7 (2 again, separate question) Does anyone know if they want the statement of research and teaching combined all into one document or just a statement of research? The call suggests the former while the Interfolio system has things labeled in accordance with the latter.

Potential examples include scholar-teachers who specialize in psychology, cognitive science, human biology, ecology, environmental racism, or the human dimensions of climate change.
- Applicants must have a Ph.D. prior to employment.

University of California, Los Angeles: Assistant Professor of Musicology (Early Music) (Deadline: 15 September 2017)Edit
- Job #JPF03092
- HERB ALPERT SCHOOL OF MUSIC - MUSICOLOGY
- Recruitment Period: Open July 28th, 2017 through September 15th, 2017
- Description: The UCLA Department of Musicology seeks a scholar in the early stages of their career for a tenure-track position at the level of Assistant Professor. Required areas of expertise are Early Music, broadly defined. A strong plus (but not a requirement) will be applied-music leadership skills appropriate to future development of the UCLA Early Music Ensemble, which is administered by the department. The department welcomes a wide variety of secondary specialties.
- All applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in Musicology or a closely related field. Applicants are also expected to have a robust research agenda and should be prepared to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
- The position is open until September 15, 2017. To apply, submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, diversity statement, and the names and addresses of three references.
- Please do this ONLINE at https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF03092.
- Anyone hear anything? 10/12
- Request for more materials, 10/16 (x3)
- 10/18 I have been told that they already know who they want to hire and the search is not transparent. I did not apply for this reason. I know some colleagues who have significant research and teaching background in this field are being excluded. What a shame!
- 10/19 I did not apply to this either, but respectfully, I disagree with your assessment. The call seeks applicants with diverse methodological approaches (e.g. “early music, broadly defined”); there is evidence above of multiple requests for more materials; recent hires at UCLA have come from several different institutions (again, I’m not connected to this school, but they do seem to have a recent record of transparent hiring practices). Before rushing to judgement, maybe we should wait and see how this job search plays out? In any event, I wish you and your colleagues the best of luck in your respective job searches.
- 10/25 Yes,but there are only three requests for more material, and those will be the final candidates who were already chosen before the search started. And by the way, this is the same institution that last year hired an ethnomusicologist to fill a music history position. Someone with an interest in Samoan music. Wow!!! So impressed, this is really cutting-edge research. But can someone explain to me what the correlation with western music is? Maybe, that Monteverdi, Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy, or Verdi (among all the others) went to an all inclusive vacation there??
- 10/25 (poster #2) Well, speaking as one of the short-listers I'm pretty sure I wasn't chosen before the search started, as I've never even met anyone in the department. It's unfortunate that your colleagues feel excluded, but we all know that the ratio of qualified applicants to positions makes the whole process more of a lottery than anything else. It had been a while since my number came up, so hopefully theirs will too. The only surefire way not to get a job you want, though, is not to apply for it. I have personally seen "preferred" internal candidates not get the job, even after ten years in a position they basically created. (x2)
- 10/26 Surely we all realize that not everyone posts to this list. The fact that there are only 3 requests for more materials listed here tells us nothing at all about the overall state of the long list or search.
- 11/1 I am a member of the Search Committee for this search. The information in the comment posted on 10/18 is completely incorrect. We absolutely do not know who we want to hire yet. We reviewed all the applications and cut the list to 20 people who were asked for further materials. We will be meeting next week to cut that list to a group of 8 who will be invited to Skype interviews. Absolutely no candidates were chosen before the search began. Finally, as regards the first posting on 10/25 above, we did not hire an ethnomusicologist for a music history position last year.
- 11/2 Many thanks for your input and for refuting the untruthful statements above. (x3)
- 11/9 Request for Skype interview (x2)
- 12/5 Any movement? (x2)

University of Cambridge: British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship (Deadline: 18 August 2017)Edit
- The British Academy will shortly invite applications to their prestigious Postdoctoral Fellowships scheme, with a deadline expected to be in early October 2017 (http://www.britac.ac.uk/british-academy-postdoctoral-fellowships). These fellowships fund three years of research on a topic of the applicant’s choice, and applications have to be hosted by a UK higher education institution. You should check the latest eligibility details on the British Academy website but basically you need to have obtained your doctorate in the last three years or else to have your viva by the end of March 2018 (but see below). There are also nationality/residency conditions, but you are automatically eligible if you have a doctorate from a UK university.
- If you would like to apply through the University of Cambridge, you need to submit a draft application to the Faculty of Music by 18 August 2017. Before then you may wish to contact an appropriate member of the Faculty who might act as mentor (for a staff list see http://www.mus.cam.ac.uk/directory/academic-staff), but this is not a requirement.
- In line with new British Academy requirements, applications will be initially scrutinised by the Faculty but the final decision as to whether we can host your application will be made at University level. We hope to tell you this by around the middle of September; if so, you will be asked at that point to commit yourself to applying through Cambridge, and we will work with you to make your application as good as possible.
- The documentation we require falls into two parts, the first of which is for the University's evaluation process, while the second is the basis of the application to the British Academy.
- (i) a document containing your name, the title of your proposed research project, and a research project description (maximum 750 words), addressing the following:
- the research problem you are seeking to address and why it is distinctive
- the design and methodology through which your project will adresss this problem
- how your proposed research will significantly change the established landscape
- how you will complete your project within the three-year period of the award
- why Cambridge is the right place to carry out the project
- (ii) a draft British Academy application consisting of the following:
- an academic CV
- a summary of your doctoral or other previous research in about 500 words
- a research proposal of about 1500 words. This should be structured as shown at the bottom, since these are the key sections of the British Academy application form.
- These documents should be supplied as Microsoft Word documents (not PDFs) emailed to email@example.com. You can also use this address for any queries you may have.
- You should be aware that in 2016 the British Academy introduced a restriction on the number of times you can apply within your period of eligibility. Normally only one application is possible, although a small number of near-miss applicants may be permitted to apply in the following year. (If this applies in your case, please say so; otherwise we shall assume this is your first application.) For this reason we would generally recommend you to apply in this round only if you will have obtained your doctorate by September 2017; this is in part because in most cases the best informed referees will be your examiners (supervisors are not permitted to act as referees).

GENERAL DISCUSSION Edit
Musicology/Ethnomusicology 2017-18 Wiki Moderator: 5120j (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- 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.
- 7/6/17 Call for new moderator: After many years of much-appreciated service, Hybridist will be stepping down as back-up moderator, so I am in search of someone new. I plan to continue to do the day-to-day updates and job postings for the foreseeable future, so this will not require a lot of time on your part. However, I prefer to have a backup administrator/moderator to keep an eye on the page when extra care is needed and/or I am unable to do so myself.
- If you are interested, please send me an email (anonymously is fine) at 5120janon at gmail dot com.
- Moderators need to be off the job market, have a basic understanding of the wiki setup/formatting/history, and already have a Wikia.com username with an edit history.
- 7/6/17 Thank you for everything, Hybridist! I have really appreciated your work all these years. 5120j, thank you also for all of your service to the wiki! (x2)
- 7/14 Please note that positions starting in Fall 2017 are still being posted on the 2016-17 wiki page.
- 10/14 A job ad for Director of the School of Music at Cal State Fullerton was posted yesterday. I have removed it as outside the scope of this wiki (since a degree in ethno/musicology was neither required nor preferred), but interested candidates can find the posting here: http://hr.fullerton.edu/diversity/job-openings/ft/9734BR_director_school_of_music.asp
- Also, new this year, there is a Music Administration wiki for jobs as Department Chairs, Directors, and Deans: http://academicjobs.wikia.com/wiki/Music_Administration_2017-18 -5120j
- 11/12 100th job posted on November 10. In 2016, the 100th job was posted on October 31; in 2015 we hit 100 on November 19 and in the 2014-15 season, the wiki didn't reach 100 until February 11.
- 11/16 I am interested in visiting forums and websites that discuss the state of music studies in higher education, whether the opinions and observations are positive, negative, anecdotal, scholarly, or just plain venting. My interests include the job market, the state of today's students, changing curricula, etc. Please post your suggestions below.
- 11/27: People who have used interfolio before: when you list your references does it automatically generate a request? Also, even if old, is it advisable now *not* to double space after periods?
- 11/28 I'm not sure about interfolio, but I am sure that you should never use two spaces after a period unless you're using a typewriter.
