composition faculty search, Columbia University


    Oct 02 2013 | 8:17 am
    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.

    information for three references. To apply and for more information,
