The Department of Music seeks applications for a Lecturer in Music. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2023. Lecturers at Harvard teach four courses per year (two per semester), one of which may be a graduate or advanced undergraduate course in their area of specialization. Lecturers in the Music Department primarily teach music theory at the undergraduate level (introductory courses), and also cover a graduate musicianship class, which is required for first-year Music graduate students. We invite candidates in all areas of specialization and are actively seeking candidates who can also teach practical courses in sound technology, as well as participate in the Department’s Sound Studies Lab.
The appointment is for three years, with the second two years contingent on a satisfactory performance review during the first year.
PhD or equivalent degree in Music (music theory, musicology, composition) or a related discipline, required by the expected start date.
Demonstrated strong commitment to teaching is desirable.
