Faculty Fellow in Music and Sound Studies
Department of Music
New York University Arts and Science

The Department of Music at New York University invites applicants for a Faculty Fellow position in the field of music and sound studies. We are looking for a superb scholar who will be a dynamic presence both in the classroom and the field. Their work should complement the research and methodologies of current faculty and bring fresh approaches to the study of musical and sonic practices. The initial appointment will be for one year beginning September 1, 2023, renewable annually for two additional years, subject to pending administrative and budgetary approval.

The successful candidate will be working at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary inquiry into histories of colonialism and processes of decolonization in music and sound studies. Within and alongside this broad area, we are especially interested in building strength in the following specializations: postcolonial studies; the Global South; Indigenous/Native American studies; religion and spirituality; and classical music historiography in relation to colonialism, imperialism, race, gender, and sexuality.

Responsibilities include teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in their areas of expertise - possibly including overseeing undergraduate independent studies. The teaching load will be three courses per annum. Service in the program might involve facilitating the department colloquium series.

In compliance with NYC’s Pay Transparency Act, the annual salary for this position is $60,000. New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) the scope and responsibilities of the position, the candidate’s work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, as well as market and organizational considerations when extending an offer.

Candidates must have completed their Ph.D. no earlier than January 2018 and no later than August 1, 2023.
