2. Please include the deadline and a web link to the ad/website; PLEASE follow the format of other entries. Include the location of the job IF the location is not obvious from the institution name.

3. Please do not include the full text of the ad - a few sentences at most. Full text of job ads is preserved off-site here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1y31UbTzobhCNodojSVEKdBaJ2Wx2RPDX?usp=sharing

Jobs for 2024[]

Note: in keeping with prior practice, "Jobs for 2024" shall be interpreted as covering jobs that fall into the 2023-2024 application cycle for jobs starting during the North American / UK 2024-2025 Academic Year. Although exact start times will vary, this will generally include any positions starting between January 2024 and April 2025, and can include such things as 1-term visiting professorships, temporary lecturer opportunities, etc. Listings accidentally placed here but belonging to a preceding or following academic year will be moved appropriately.

In keeping with discussion on previous year's wikis, this listing welcomes postings about jobs from institutions around the world (however, we only post international jobs which are advertised in English), including but not limited to: full-time tenure track faculty, full-time non-tenure track faculty, full-time community college faculty, and part-time/adjunct faculty appointments. (We do not currently post listings for part-time adjunct pools, only for specific part-time/adjunct positions.) Postings in the UK will be put in the full-time section if salaried/.5 FTE or above, and in the part-time section if below .5 FTE and/or paid hourly.

  • 6/7 A VAP in Music job posting appeared on HigheredJobs and a couple other places today, but it doesn't give any clues as to what kind of music courses the post is for. The entire text of the ad is just HR boilerplate (including "Other Duties & Responsibilities: List any other duties or responsibilities unique to this position"). It is not yet up on the Alfred University jobs site but I'll update if it gets posted. -5120j

GENERAL DISCUSSION[]

Music Studies 2023-2024 Wiki Moderator: 5120j (5120janon@gmail.com)

  • 9/6 I am thinking of moving all the non-North American jobs to the Talk page since there are a lot of them and I think their appeal is fairly niche (though enough people voted for them last year that I don't want to stop posting jobs outside the US & Canada). Any objections? -5120j
  • 1/9/24 Definitely don't move international listings: I know of many people outside of North America who use this wiki as a resource
  • 9/6b Personally I’ve been pleased to see all the international positions listed this year, I think it’s immensely helpful to have them all in one place and I am very interested in them.
  • 10/2 I think it doesn't hurt to have all in one place, and it is good to have all in one place to make quick comparisons. Also a new category could be included like "Interdisciplinary", such as music psychology, neuromusicology, music & data science, computer science, engineering. Also music therapy, which is a clinical discipline.
    • 10/3 I will not be adding any additional fields to this wiki, which already casts its net widely enough, but if someone wants to start another wiki for other music-studies-adjacent fields such as music psychology or music therapy, I will be happy to help you set it up. -5120j
    • Since it is a wiki, anybody can add anything they like. That's the essence of a wiki. If some person or people claim to be "in charge," it's not really a wiki anymore.
  • 10/7 Thank you 5120j for spearheading this work for so many years, and thanks to all the contributors. This wiki is a fantastic resource. (x3)
  • 1/8/24 Happy New Year to all! Does this wiki have an established convention as to how long to wait before commenting "Any Updates Here?" on any specific job listing? A month or so after the review was scheduled to begin? Longer? Thanks in advance!
  • 1/9 A month (maybe 6 weeks?) is probably reasonable for jobs posted in the fall; you can probably expect jobs posted during the spring to move faster. But every search is different.

Wiki for 2024-2025[]

  • 6/5/24 A few 2025 jobs are now posted, so I will be creating next year's wiki in the near future. If anyone has any comments or suggestions on structure/format for next year, please let me know. At the moment I'm planning to keep everything basically the same as this year, though I might cut the Commercial Music jobs, except when the posting indicates that applicants with a degree in musicology/ethno/theory/comp could truly be considered, since jobs that are more interested in music industry/music business applicants didn't get much traffic this year. -5120j
