Assistant Professor in Viola

The Department of Music Performance Studies, Don Wright Faculty of Music, Western University, invites applications for a Probationary (tenure-track) position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Viola to begin July 1, 2013.

Candidates should have an established professional career, experience as a studio teacher at the university level, and a grounding in current performance research.

The successful candidate must be prepared to balance ongoing professional commitments with a strong profile in teaching, performance, performance research, and committee work at the Don Wright Faculty of Music.

Letter of application, a comprehensive curriculum vitae, and a CD containing selections of at least two recent performances should be sent to the following address. Three letters of reference indicating first-hand knowledge of the candidate’s teaching and research abilities should be forwarded under separate cover. Additional material including a fifteen minute clip of private teaching at an advanced level may be requested later.
