Start Date: July 1, 2011

Description: Composer-improviser with an established reputation who will diversify the range of contemporary creative practices explored in the department’s graduate program in Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology (ICIT), complementing the existing faculty.

In addition to offering graduate courses in ICIT, this person will contribute to the undergraduate curriculum, such as in the areas of theory or analysis, and fulfill normal service duties appropriate to the position.

Hello Christopher,

Just checking this while searching the forums, . . . this is the dreamjob :-)

Question for you : if someone were to prove themselves worthy of such a post, what bearing would a lack of college degrees have ? I realize the post is likely filled, but I wanted to ask the generic questions to gain some perspective on the lay of the land.

As soon as I get my project completed, I will begin a prolific and prodigious outflow. I am hoping that will be within the next couple of weeks.

My guess is that you getting this or a similar job without a degree in a relevant field is about a 0% chance.
