Description

The Department of Music at UC Santa Barbara invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary lecturers to teach undergraduate or graduate courses. Temporary appointment positions are variable in terms of percentage of time (5% to 100%). They will range from one quarter to one year with the possibility of reappointment that is dependent on teaching performance and department needs.

Qualified applicants must hold a master's degree in Music or have two years of professional experience at the time of application. Additionally, applicants must have at least one year of teaching experience by the time of appointment. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service as appropriate to the position.

Specific areas of interest for the Department during the 2018-19 recruitment cycle include (1) trumpet (a 25% appointment anticipated in Winter and Spring 2019), (2) orchestra conducting (a 39% appointment anticipated in Spring 2019). Please inquire with the department to learn about additional openings.

The pool will remain open until October 31, 2019 to accommodate department needs. Appointments for Winter 2019 will be reviewed in early December 2018, appointments for Spring 2019 will be reviewed in February 2019, and Fall 2019 appointments will be reviewed in June 2019. The pool will close on October 31, 2019; if you would like to continue to be considered after that time, and the pooled position is advertised again, you will need to submit a new application.

PLEASE NOTE: The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists at the time you are applying. See the review date specified in UC Recruit to learn whether the department is currently reviewing applications for an upcoming opening. If there is no future review date specified, your application may not be considered at this time.

To receive full consideration for a Winter 2019 teaching appointment, submit all application materials by December 5, 2018. Thereafter, the position will remain open.
