APAP believes that pay transparency is a critical step toward pay equity and benefits both the job seeker and the employer. For those reasons, we are now requiring that employers include a salary range in all new job postings.
Postings that are backfilled from another association’s career center may not include salary information.
In compliance with NYC's Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary range for this position is $80,000 - $100,000. New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) scope and responsibilities of the position, candidate's work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, as well as market and organizational considerations when extending an offer.
The New York University (NYU) Division of Libraries is seeking a tenure-track faculty Librarian for Music to liaise with the world-class music focused programs and departments within NYU's Tisch School of the Arts; the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; the College of Arts and Science; and other programs throughout the University.
The Librarian for Music will lead relationships with our faculty and students engaged in music-related work across a spectrum of areas that includes music composition and theory, music education and therapy, music technology and business, music history and ethnography, and more. This Librarian will work collaboratively with colleagues in our Arts, Performance, and Humanistic Inquiry team to develop and sustain our liaison services in these areas. They will also work in close collaboration with our Avery Fisher Center for Music and Media, the collection and service location for our audiovisual materials, and with colleagues in our Collections and Content Strategy group to develop music collections in physical and electronic formats that are distinctive, interdisciplinary, and intersectional in order to serve the wide-ranging needs of our communities.
The Librarian for Music will work with colleagues within the Division of Libraries to support and facilitate modes of scholarly inquiry in Music and the Humanities and work with NYU researchers who are at the cutting edge of scholarship and technology related to music and sound. The Librarian will work closely with colleagues on challenging questions related to copyright, scholarly communication, and licensing of streaming media. This librarian will also represent NYU in professional consortia and associations locally and nationally.
Faculty librarians pursue their own research, contributing their expertise, experiences, creative or artistic outputs, and investigations to build new knowledge and make cultural contributions. The person in this position has wide latitude in determining their own research agenda in their chosen areas. The Librarian for Music would find themselves well positioned to make substantive contributions to research in a number of areas, including, but not limited to: the underrepresentation of historically marginalized voices in publishers' and libraries' music and performing arts collections; the challenges of collecting and preserving born-digital and informally published content produced by underrepresented content creators and performers; the provision of sustainable and equitable services to music-focused communities; and much more.
NYU Cluster Hiring Initiative
NYU Libraries is participating in the NYU Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative to build a more diverse faculty community that seeks to recruit, welcome, and support new library faculty working across the Division on timely themes of social importance, such as Inequality and Anti-racism, Population Health and Health Equity, Open Science and the Public Good, and Urban Environments and Politics. This particular position is part of our Transformative Humanities for All: Building and Sharing the Cultural Record cluster. This cluster will enhance NYU Libraries' capabilities to support academic and non-academic knowledge production in the humanities and related disciplines at NYU and beyond. The positions in this cluster build upon the advancement of the humanities. The scholarship conducted by the faculty in these cluster positions will center a transformative approach to building and sharing knowledge through critical, ethical inquiries that focus on the (in)visibility of epistemologies from historically and continuously underrepresented communities. The practicality of this cluster's work will reside in fostering knowledge creation, identifying and acknowledging current and pre-existing knowledge, and focusing on the relationships between the academy and those communities most implicated by any particular area or approach to knowledge creation. The goal of this cluster is to build a transformative humanities that exists beyond the bounds of what has been known as traditional epistemological processes in the interest of more equitable shared knowledge.
