The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University seeks to fill two open-rank positions in the Department of Musicology. Qualified candidates may be considered for appointment as chair. One of the two selected applicants will have specialization in music before 1750. Duties include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses as well as advising Masters in Musicology and Doctor of Musical Arts students. The initial appointment will be for a period of three to four years, depending on rank, with the expectation of reappointment and the opportunity for promotion. Peabody does not offer tenure.
The Department of Musicology plays an integral role in the education of students across the Conservatory. Undergraduates complete a three-semester survey and an upper-level elective. Those interested in additional work in Musicology can pursue a Minor in Musicology. Graduate course offerings include a broad range of seminars that reflect the wide-ranging interests of our faculty. In addition to teaching at the Conservatory, faculty in the Department of Musicology can teach students at the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus through the Peabody at Homewood program.
Located in the heart of Baltimore's Mount Vernon Cultural District, the Peabody Institute was founded in 1857 as America's first academy of music. Today, through its degree-granting Conservatory and its community-based Preparatory music and dance school, Peabody trains musicians and dancers of every age and at every level. Each year Peabody stages more than 850 major public concerts and performances. Peabody is one of the nine divisions that comprise Johns Hopkins University.
Nominations and letters of application, accompanied by a C.V. and three letters of recommendation should be submitted through Interfolio. A review of applications will begin on November 1, 2022. Candidates will be invited to submit two writing samples that show the breadth of scholarly work (e.g., articles or book chapters).
