Qualifications: Candidates should have a Ph.D. in musicology, significant post-doctoral teaching experience, a promising record of publications, and demonstrated excellence in teaching. Because Washington University is an environment that fosters interdisciplinary teaching, preference will be given to candidates who can engage in interdisciplinary teaching in a liberal arts environment.

Duties: Teach undergraduate and graduate courses in areas of expertise; pursue research and publication; supervise independent projects, theses, and dissertations; and participate on department and university committees.

Deadline: Consideration of applications will begin on September 30, 2011, and continue until the position is filled.

music and provides lesson and performance opportunities for some 500 students per
semester. Our applied music teaching staff includes members of the local jazz
community and of the St. Louis Symphony. Our student body consists of
highly motivated, academically-oriented young men and women who pursue music
primarily as a means of personal enrichment and less commonly as a professional
