Notre Dame seeks Professor of Medieval Sacred Music

Department of Music
University of Notre Dame

Rank Open
Medieval Sacred Music

The University of Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track position in Medieval Sacred Music. The rank is anticipated to be Assistant Professor, but appointments as Associate Professor or Professor may be considered for exceptional candidates. There will be a concurrent appointment in Notre Dame’s renowned Medieval Institute. Candidates must be committed to working in a liberal arts teaching environment, pursue an active research program leading to publications, have wide-ranging interests in music and the arts in general, and expect to influence and contribute to the diversity and character of the academic community.

The Medieval Institute, founded in 1946, coordinates the teaching and research of the largest contingent of medievalists of any North American university (see: http://www.nd.edu/~medinst/).

Responsibilities include teaching the normal university workload, which is two 3-credit courses or the equivalent in each 15-week semester, and performing departmental, university and professional service. One course per year may be a graduate seminar in the Medieval Institute. The faculty member also will be involved with the Master of Sacred Music degree, a graduate program taught jointly by the departments of Music and Theology (http://www.nd.edu/~msm/welcome.html). Courses taught will include introductory and advanced courses in sacred music and medieval music, chant, general music courses for majors and nonmajors and university service courses. Overseeing appropriate ensembles may also be considered as a service contribution. All areas of specialization will be considered, but scholars who work in the areas of chant and/or medieval sacred polyphony are encouraged to apply.

Applicants will have completed (or will have completed within one year of appointment) a Ph.D. in Musicology with a specialty in an early music area relevant to the position.
