Job Description

Boston University College of Fine Arts seeks two music educators at the rank of assistant professor who will be part of the Music Education Department and are familiar with innovative approaches to music learning and pedagogy. Special consideration will be given to candidates who bring expertise and insight related to social justice, curricular design, non-traditional music students, advocacy, technology integration, and community engagement. Experience with online teaching, course management systems, and other related pedagogical approaches and technological tools is essential. Candidates must have at least four years teaching in elementary or secondary schools. The ability to foster relationships with Massachusetts’s public schools is critical as is the building of the department’s undergraduate population. Successful applicants will be expected to teach in both the graduate program (on-campus and online) and undergraduate program. Dissertation supervision will be an essential part of each faculty member’s load. These are non-tenure track positions.
