The Cornell University Department of Music invites applications for the position of Director of Wind Ensembles and Assistant Professor (full-time, tenure-track).  The appointment will commence July 1, 2018.

Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in music or demonstrate equivalent professional achievement.  In addition to outstanding qualifications as a winds conductor, the successful candidate should understand how to foster high-level performance in a liberal arts environment, and be committed to university-wide engagement in instrumental music.  The successful candidate is expected to possess musical and intellectual breadth compatible with the goals of a major research university, as well as the requisite administrative experience and artistic vision for guiding Cornell’s winds program.

Duties will include directing the Wind Ensemble(s); teaching courses in the department’s Materials & Techniques curriculum as necessary; teaching conducting; advising students; and engaging in service within the Department and the University.

The candidate is expected to work closely and collaboratively with Department of Music colleagues, and exhibit potential for a distinguished career as a teacher-scholar and performing artist on national and international levels. We envision our top ensemble will provide a "lab" for composition students, and a top-notch conductor might provide doctoral and advanced undergraduate students essential consultation in topics like instrumentation and conducting. Desirable attributes include (but are not limited to) a record of innovative programming, classroom teaching experience, and a desire to work with students in an interdisciplinary liberal arts community. Applicants are requested to apply online at with a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and three current letters of recommendation.
