    Department of Musicology - Tenured Professor Position

    University of California Los Angeles

    Requisition Number: JPF08009

    The Herb Alpert School of Music at the University of California, Los Angeles is searching for a senior hire in Musicology. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply, and candidates should, in their letters of application, highlight research and teaching activities that demonstrate a strong commitment to the needs and perspectives of disadvantaged populations. 

    The successful candidate will hold a PhD in musicology or a related field, and have the experience and academic record commensurate with the rank of Associate or Full Professor at UCLA. Candidates with significant administrative experience (e.g., chairing a department), who have an excellent teaching and mentoring record and accomplishment in more than one research field, and whose research, teaching, and service notably advance equity, diversity, and inclusion, are especially encouraged to apply. The candidate's areas of specialization should complement or extend the department's already considerable strengths. Complementary areas could include, but are not necessarily limited to: screen-media musicology (film, television, video games, etc.), global music histories, repertories of music or musicking before 1800, writing, and a number of interdisciplinary combinations such as music and disability, politics, race, urban geography, or LGBTQ+ studies. The department is particularly interested in candidates with a clear commitment to enhancing the diversity of the faculty and student population, and a demonstrated ability to mentor graduate students from a diversity of backgrounds in musicology and related fields. In addition to teaching in the current musicology curricula, we anticipate that our new colleague will take the lead in developing new courses in their areas of specialty.

    The Department of Musicology is in The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, with significant historical ties to the Division of Humanities in the College of Letters and Science. The School of Music unites separate departments of Music, Musicology, and Ethnomusicology, as well as interdepartmental degree programs (IDPs) in Global Jazz Studies and Music Industry. (Musicology faculty are active in both IDPs). The School offers the BA, BM, MM, DMA, and PhD degrees in a wide array of performance, creative, and scholarly fields. Given this unique set of alignments and our faculty's history of interdisciplinarity, candidates are encouraged to highlight any relevant interdisciplinary experience they would bring to UCLA.

    Candidates should provide (1) a cover letter outlining their qualifications; (2) a scholarly CV (plus a separate professional resume if appropriate); (3) a statement addressing how their work addresses issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion; and (4) the names/contact information of four referees. Writing samples, letters of reference, and statements on research and teaching may be requested later in the process as needed.

    To ensure full consideration, all materials must be submitted to https://apptrkr.com/3606685 by December 15, 2022.

    The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, bullying and other demeaning behavior, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists' current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University's Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks. 

    To apply, please visit: https://apptrkr.com/3606685
