Job Description / Duties

DePauw University, a nationally ranked liberal arts college with one of the first Schools of Music in the country, invites applications for a one-year term position in Applied Voice beginning August 2017. Applicants of all voice types will be considered. Responsibilities include teaching undergraduate applied voice, inclusive of art song and opera. Teaching may also include musical theatre, with interdisciplinary experiences highly preferred. Responsibilities may also include teaching other voice area courses such as diction for singers, vocal pedagogy, musical theatre scenes, performing opera scenes, and solo vocal literature, depending on the candidate’s qualifications and the needs of the School of Music. As our students often seek a wide range of vocal experiences, promoting good vocal health and development in their applied studies is a must.

School of Music faculty members seek a colleague, who is:
• Dedicated to liberal arts, committed to a student-centered small campus environment, and committed to 21CM concepts;
• Committed to diversity and inclusion by employing inclusive pedagogy and valuing diversity of student scholarship, learning and creative performance;
• Devoted to being an outstanding and versatile performer, musician, and vocal music pedagogue;
• Dedicated to working collaboratively with others and building community; and,
• Committed to excellence in college teaching, active engagement in recruiting a diverse student body of vocalists, and working with students to increase their musicianship.

Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. A M.M degree is required; experience teaching at the university level and evidence of scholarly/artistic activity are preferred. A commitment to undergraduate teaching in a forward-thinking and innovative context is essential.

The DePauw University School of Music recently launched the 21st-Century Musician (21CM) Initiative, a complete reimagining of the skills, tools and experiences necessary to create musicians of the future instead of the past; for example, flexible, entrepreneurial musicians who find diverse musical venues and outlets in addition to traditional performance spaces, develop new audiences, and utilize their music innovatively to impact and strengthen communities. Our program is the only required multi-course entrepreneurial music curriculum in the country. With a focus on creating musicians of the future instead of the past, this is an exciting time in the 131-year history of the school.

Located in Greencastle, Indiana, about a 45-minute drive west of Indianapolis, DePauw is also home to a 520-acre nature park - which includes at least 9 miles of trails - and Historic East College, built in 1877, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. DePauw is committed to diversity in its student body, faculty, staff, and curriculum.

Review of applications will begin June 5, 2017 and continue until the position is filled. Applications received by this date will be assured of full consideration. Send inquiries to: Dr. Caroline Jetton, Associate Dean of the School of Music.

Submit through Interfolio an application letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and web links to live video recordings of recent unedited performance, preferably including a variety of languages and styles.
