Position Announcement: Assistant Professor of Composition (Review of Applications Begins Dec. 1, 2013)
The Department of Music at Columbia University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in Composition at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin July 1, 2014.
The appointee will be expected to carry out creative work; teach composition at undergraduate and graduate levels; teach in music theory or some other area of intellectual interest, as well as in the undergraduate Core Curriculum; and participate actively in the development of the Department's programs. We seek candidates who, through their composing, research, teaching, and service, can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community at Columbia.
An appropriate doctorate or its professional equivalent must be in hand at the time of the appointment. Significant achievement and potential as a composer is the most important qualification. We are open to a wide range of aesthetic and technical orientations. A candidate's potential for working closely with the Computer Music Center would be viewed as an advantage, as would any involvement that would expand the scope of compositional possibility at Columbia.
