Job Title Department of Music (Performance & Creativity, TT) Department Music

Job Summary

The Department of Music invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Performance and Creativity in music or sound art beginning Fall 2022. Assistant Professor (DMA or Ph.D.) preferred; Instructor (ABD) or Associate Professor possible. This is an unprecedented position for which we are prioritizing performers in historically marginalized and under-represented sonic practices. Thus, exceptional creative artists without an advanced terminal degree may also be considered. We seek a colleague whose practice complements the contributions of our current faculty and who uses and teaches experimental, participatory, collaborative, community-based methods, and/or digital practice to engage with issues of social justice or inequality. Performing, teaching, and research interests might include, but are not limited to: music performance, sound art, sound studies, interface and instrument building, improvisation, creative ethnography, and sound design. Artist/scholars whose work engages with the Global South, indigenous North America, or the African diaspora are particularly encouraged to apply. The teaching load is equivalent to five courses over two semesters, including two course equivalencies in applied instruction; periodically one course will be Tutorial (a topical writing/critical thinking course for first-year students, the only College-wide requirement beyond the completion of a major in an individually-advised curriculum); periodically one course will be Introduction to Music Studies (a course that gives students a general overview of a wide variety of perspectives on and approaches to music). Additional information about our curriculum and faculty can be found at https: // www. grinnell.edu/academics/majors-concentrations/music.

We use E-Verify to check employment eligibility of our new hires. E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The system allows employers like Grinnell College to verify the employment eligibility of its employees, regardless of citizenship. Based on the information provided on Form I-9, E-Verify confirms this information with DHS and Social Security Administration (SSA) records.

Grinnell College is committed to establishing and maintaining a safe and nondiscriminatory educational environment for all College community members. It is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in matters of admission, employment, and housing, and in access to and participation in its education programs, services, and activities.

Discrimination and harassment on any of the bases covered by state or federal antidiscrimination statutes is unlawful and a violation of Grinnell College policy.

Grinnell College recognizes that harassment can relate to an individual's membership in more than one protected class. Targeting individuals on the basis of their membership in any protected class is also a violation of Grinnell's Community Standards and Responsibilities and may violate the College's Hate Crime and Bias-Motivated Incident Policy. Under these circumstances, the College will coordinate the investigation and resolution, provided that doing so does not unduly delay prompt and equitable resolution under this policy.

This policy prohibits sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence against Grinnell College community members of any gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. This policy also prohibits gender-based harassment that does not involve conduct of a sexual nature.
