Position Summary

Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track assistant professor of instrumental conducting in the Department of Music beginning in August 2022. The successful candidate will be responsible for directing the university orchestra and teaching applied lessons (brass or strings). Additional courses will include music theory and/or music history courses, based upon the strengths of the candidate and need of the department. Teaching responsibilities could include other areas as aligned with the strengths and expertise of the successful candidate and department need. The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain relationships with area music programs and music education/music therapy professional organizations. Consistent with the expectations of all SRU faculty, the selected candidate will be responsible for teaching courses in the candidate's area of expertise, maintaining scholarly productivity, and demonstrating leadership/service at the department, college, and university levels, or beyond.

Most important, the successful candidate will be responsible for continuing and expanding the SRU Department of Music's instrumental program with development of an active on-campus and off-campus concert schedule. The candidate must maintain a high profile in professional organizations and develop a strong network with high school directors in the region, actively recruiting, guest conducting for high school festivals, and giving recruitment performances within the region. The candidate will assist colleagues in helping to shape the music curriculum to meet twenty-first century demands, NASM, and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), of which SRU is a part.

Slippery Rock University prides itself on being inclusive, welcoming, and small-town friendly and is routinely recognized as a “Great College to Work For.” The Department of Music is active and highly visible on campus, with thirteen tenured/tenure-track faculty members and thirteen temporary faculty. As a unionized faculty, salary and benefits are excellent. This position is one of three tenure-track music positions that are currently being filled at SRU due to retirements.

Minimum Qualifications

Doctorate in Instrumental Conducting or a related field is required (doctorate must be in-hand by August 2022). The candidate must demonstrate success in conducting instrumental ensembles and strong ability as a performer. The candidate's demonstrated commitment to the education of diverse populations must be clear and vivid in the applicant's materials. The candidate should possess a collaborative and collegial disposition and have a demonstrable commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, belonging, and community outreach. Strong administrative, collaborative, and interpersonal skills, as well as a proven commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, belonging, and community outreach.

A successful interview, including conducting one or more instrumental ensembles and a teaching demonstration, is required. We will seek a candidate who has successful professional experience and connections, as well as active involvement in related professional organizations, and who can demonstrate a history of engaging students both within and far beyond the classroom/studio.

Preferred Qualifications

Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated success in engaging college students both in the classroom/studio and beyond, a developed applied pedagogy, commitment to mentoring student development, as well as candidates who possess significant experience with orchestral conducting and program management (recruitment and administration, which could include marching band) and who have experience teaching music theory, music history, and/or an applied area (brass or strings).
