Pomona College — Tenure-Track Position, Studio Voice

The Pomona College Department of Music invites applications for a tenure-track position in Studio Voice beginning with the 2018-19 academic year at the rank of Assistant Professor.  The annual teaching load will primarily include teaching voice lessons, coordinating the vocal program, and working with the choral program; teaching 1-2 classroom courses is also expected.  The classroom teaching may include courses in the candidate’s area of expertise, general music, aural skills, or the Critical Inquiry program for first-year students.

As a department in which performance and scholarship are equally valued parts of a liberal-arts college curriculum, we seek a colleague who shares these principles and, in addition to professional work as a vocalist, can build bridges across the campus community. To this end, we welcome candidates with varying disciplinary and curricular interests. A DMA degree or equivalent professional experience in lieu of terminal degree is expected.  Experience teaching undergraduate students is also highly desired, as is dedication to a liberal arts educational environment.  The successful candidate will have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to improving higher education for underrepresented students.

Send a dossier, including (a) letter of application, (b) curriculum vitae, (c) transcripts, (d) three brief statements – one addressing teaching philosophy, one addressing professional work and future directions, and one addressing demonstrated ability to mentor a diverse student body, (e) a document that includes active links to recent video-recordings of live performances of at least 3 compositions for a total of 30 to 45 minutes, and (f) three letters of recommendation. These documents should be uploaded to Academic Jobs Online (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9425).  Review of applications will begin on October 13, 2017.

The Music Department has ten full-time faculty and 30 part-time applied music and ensemble instructors. The Department serves music majors as well as a large number of non-majors each semester.
