Assistant Professor of Music (Music Technology/Composition)

Albright College, a dynamic liberal arts college in Reading, PA, invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Music with a dual focus on Music Technology and Composition. This is a tenure-track position starting August 15, 2018.

Position Expectations and Qualifications
We seek a collaborative colleague who aims to contribute to the ongoing creative and intellectual development of our undergraduate students who study the field of Music Industry Studies. In addition to our academic programs, the Music Department also actively supports Albright’s unique interdisciplinary academic mission with coursework and creative projects that invite a cross-disciplinary approach to learning. A DMA or Ph.D. in Music, Music Technology, or Composition is required; ABD will be considered.

In our search for new colleagues to join our dedicated faculty, we look for demonstrated excellence in teaching, evidence of creative/scholarly production or potential, and commitment to the values of liberal education in service to Albright’s mission, namely, “to inspire and educate the scholar and leader in each student, building on a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences and a commitment to the best of human values, fostering a commitment to a lifetime of service and learning.” That commitment includes attention to equity and inclusion in all aspects of our work.

Teaching Responsibilities
Teaching load is six undergraduate courses per year. Applicants should have a strong commitment to teaching undergraduate students in an interdisciplinary liberal arts environment. Faculty have the opportunity to develop new and innovative courses, and may choose to offer courses in January term or Summer Session. The specific teaching assignment will depend on the candidate’s areas of expertise and experience as well as departmental needs. Possibilities include the following courses: Theory/Aural Skills I and II, Live Audio Production, Recording Technology, Music Production, Songwriting, Commercial Arranging, as well as general education courses such as Music and the Cinema, Music in World Cultures, and a First-Year Seminar in the History of Recorded Sound.

Departmental Home
This faculty position is situated within the Department of Music, consisting of a team of 4 full-time and 9 part-time faculty members who champion the idea that the study of music is an essential aspect of a well-rounded, liberal arts education. We strive each day to provide our students with diverse opportunities to explore their musical creativity and advance their music-related knowledge/abilities through a large array of academic courses, private instruction, as well as multiple choral and instrumental performing ensembles that are open to all students.

Integral to our committed study of music at Albright College are our award-winning academic programs.  Our full major in Music Industry Studies integrates three academic areas of focus: Artistry, Industry, and Technology. The first focus, Artistry, includes courses in music history, theory/analysis, songwriting, commercial arranging, and private instruction (voice, piano, guitar, etc.). The second focus, Industry, harnesses our department’s Music Business curriculum to examine topics as diverse as: artist management; distribution; licensing; copywriting; marketing and promotion; and, music law. The Technology strand includes contact time within the arenas of audio/recording technology and music production. The degree program concludes with two capstone experiences: a pre-professional internship and an academic seminar in entrepreneurship. In addition to this full degree, we also offer a co-major that focuses solely on the business aspects on the Music Industry. The current student population within these two programs is approximately 75 students.

Beyond teaching, scholarship, and professional activities, our faculty supervise internships and independent studies, serve as academic advisors and on faculty governance committees, and are engaged in supporting students and the college in multiple ways. We sponsor an annual Music Business Forum that offers our students and the community the opportunity to interface with high-profile music industry artists and business leaders. Faculty mentors also advise our pre-professional organization, Lion Enterprises, which is comprised of four divisions: Lion Records, Albright Music Publishing Group, Lion Management, and our Songwriters Organization. Many of our departmental faculty and students participate in Albright’s Creative Research Experience (ACRE), which supports student-faculty collaborations on focused projects during January interim and summer sessions.
