The School of Music at Ithaca College announces its Diversity Scholars Fellowship Program search for 2018-19. Hosting two fellows, this program supports promising scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy in order to better prepare them for tenure track appointments at liberal arts or comprehensive colleges/universities. Fellows who successfully obtain the doctoral degree and show an exemplary record of teaching, scholarship, and engagement in academic service throughout the fellowship may be considered as candidates for tenure-eligible appointments anticipated to begin in fall 2019.
We welcome applications in the following areas: a) ethnomusicology, with the capacity to lead a scholarly and performance-based exploration of the musics of India, China, Africa, or other cultures typically underrepresented in U.S. schools of music; and b) hip-hop music performance, preferably with an interest in music education or music for children and an ability to help explore pedagogy of non-traditional musics and ensembles in K-12 public education.
Position Responsibilities and Terms of Fellowship: Fellowships are for the academic year (August 16, 2018, to May 31, 2019) and are non-renewable. Fellows will receive a $32,000 stipend; $5,000 in travel/professional development support; relocation reimbursement; office space; health benefits; and access to Ithaca College and Cornell University libraries. Fellows will teach one three-credit course (or its equivalent) in the fall semester and another in the spring semester, will be mentored by senior faculty, will participate in at least one official function per semester, and must partake in an exit interview.
