*Two Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Music at Columbia University *

The Department of Music at Columbia University is pleased to announce two
Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowships, to begin in September 2010. We seek
scholars or composers in the early stages of their academic careers
(with doctorates received after June 30, 2007 or with all requirements
completed by June 30, 2010) whose research, creative work, and teaching will
add to the intellectual vigor and diversity of musical life at Columbia. In
each semester of a two-year appointment, a Fellow will teach one course. At
least three of these four courses will be in Columbia's Core Curriculum:
either Music Humanities (Masterpieces of Western Music) or a comparable
course in Major Cultures (such as Asian Music Humanities). A fourth course
may be on a subject chosen by the Fellow, in consultation with the
Department. (For information about the
Core Curriculum, visit http://www.college.columbia.edu/core/classes/.)

Fellows will also be encouraged to share their work with the University
community in colloquia and other appropriate presentations. The Fellowship
will bring an initial salary of $52,250, with an increase
anticipated in the second year. Research expenses will be reimbursed up to
$1,000 annually. A letter of application should be accompanied by: (1) a
curriculum vitae (2) one sample of work: a dissertation chapter or
an article, or a composition (score, recording, or both) (3) a statement of
research or creative plans for the fellowship period (up to 1500 words) (4)
a brief statement of teaching experience and interests (up to
500 words) (5) three letters of recommendation, which may be sent directly
by the writers

After initial review, the committee may request further written or recorded
materials from applicants. Applications MUST BE RECEIVED BY November 9,
2009. Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
employer. Minorities and women are encouraged to apply.
