The appointed faculty member will be part of the Department of Music and Performing Arts Profession. This is a one-year, non renewable non-tenure track appointment.

Responsibilities:     Expected teaching load is up to six undergraduate or graduate courses per year (3 in fall and 3 in spring).  Other duties include undergraduate capstone project supervision, master's thesis supervision, developing and maintaining professional bridges to the music technology industry, student recruitment, and program administration. Participation in faculty meetings, committees, and other service appropriate to a university faculty member is also required

Qualifications: A terminal degree in music technology, performance, composition, computer science, engineering, digital media arts or a closely related field is required. ABD applicants will be considered as long as the degree is completed prior to the start date of the position.  A successful applicant will demonstrate commitment to excellence as exemplified by publications, performances, installations, compositions, and/or hardware/software design. Experience in teaching and mentoring of students is desirable.

Application Instructions: Please apply online with a letter of application, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, diversity statement (describing how you address diversity and inclusion in the scope of your teaching and broader work), and names and contact information for three referees who will be automatically contacted by Interfolio on your behalf to upload confidential letters.
