The School of Music at Ithaca College announces its Diversity Scholars Fellowship Program search for 2018-19. Hosting two fellows, this program supports promising scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy in order to better prepare them for tenure track appointments at liberal arts or comprehensive colleges/universities. Fellows who successfully obtain the doctoral degree and show an exemplary record of teaching, scholarship, and engagement in academic service throughout the fellowship may be considered as candidates for tenure-eligible appointments anticipated to begin in fall 2019.

We welcome applications in the following areas: a) ethnomusicology, with the capacity to lead a scholarly and performance-based exploration of the musics of India, China, Africa, or other cultures typically underrepresented in U.S. schools of music; and b) hip-hop music performance, preferably with an interest in music education or music for children and an ability to help explore pedagogy of non-traditional musics and ensembles in K-12 public education.

Position Responsibilities and Terms of Fellowship:

Fellowships are for the academic year (August 16, 2018, to May 31, 2019) and are non-renewable. Fellows will receive a $32,000 stipend; $5,000 in travel/professional development support; relocation reimbursement; office space; health benefits; and access to Ithaca College and Cornell University libraries. Fellows will teach one three-credit course (or its equivalent) in the fall semester and another in the spring semester, will be mentored by senior faculty, will participate in at least one official function per semester, and must partake in an exit interview.

Position/Job Qualifications:

Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited program leading to a doctoral degree (DMA, EdD, PhD) at a U.S. institution, display evidence of superior academic achievement and a commitment to a career in teaching at the college or university level, and be authorized to work in the United States. Prior to August 15, 2018, potential fellows must be advanced to candidacy at their home institution. Preference will be given to candidates in the last year of dissertation writing, or of completing the final document or its equivalent.

Instructions for submitting your application:

Interested applicants must apply online at http://ithaca.edu/jobs/ and attach a cover letter, CV, transcripts from an accredited doctoral-granting institution, and two syllabi of courses you propose to teach. You must also provide names and email addresses of three (3) individuals who will be asked to submit letters of reference. Emails containing a link to submit letters of reference will be auto-generated and sent to the references upon final submission of your application. Questions about online application should be directed to the Office of Human Resources at (607) 274-8000. Screening of applications will begin immediately. To ensure full consideration, complete applications should be received by December 9, 2017.
