Location: Department of Music, Arts & Science, NYU
Internal Number: 135826
The NYU Department of Music (Arts & Science) invites applicants for a full-time Visiting Lecturer of Recorded Musics.
This position will involve teaching three undergraduate-level studio recording techniques courses per academic year, with one course to be taught in each of three semesters—Fall 2024, Spring 2025, and Summer 2025. While the standard course load for visiting lecturers is six courses per academic year, the courseload for this position will be reduced to three courses per year in recognition of service related to the Department's Mercer Studios. Service responsibilities will include supervising Mercer Studio recording sessions and open studio hours; overseeing and maintaining all Mercer Studio and Department of Music AV equipment; and providing essential audio/visual support to faculty and students for classes and events including lectures, performances, meetings, recording sessions, and concerts.
The initial appointment for this position is for one year starting September 1, 2024 and may be renewed up to two years, pending administrative and budgetary approval.
In compliance with NYC's Pay Transparency Act, the annual salary for this position is $60,000.
New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) the scope and responsibilities of the position, the candidate's work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, as well as market and organizational considerations when extending an offer.
A Master's degree in Recording Engineering or in a related field and a minimum of 1-2 years of experience maintaining or working in a recording studio are required for this position. A background in music theory, composition, musicology, or multi-media arts is welcomed but not required. Previous experience teaching standalone courses, assistant teaching, leading workshops, or other forms of instruction is preferred. The successful candidate will be able to prepare and deliver engaging undergraduate seminars that introduce students to recording, mixing and editing techniques as well as the cultural, social, and economic dimensions of recorded music practices and their histories. The successful candidate will also have familiarity with a variety of media equipment (multi-channel audio, digital mixers, projectors, interactive touch displays, PCs) and standard setups and protocols for classrooms and meeting rooms; experience running recording sessions in a variety of genres and approaches; experience troubleshooting and repairing AV equipment; thorough knowledge of computer operating systems (Mac, PC) and video conferencing and streaming software; strong interpersonal skills; and excellent written and oral communication skills.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, CV, names and contact information of two references, a link to your portfolio or at least two samples of your recording work (ideally in different genres), a draft course description of no more than 200 words and outline for a studio recording techniques course, and a statement of diversity and inclusion (no more than 400 words). As diversity is an important part of the NYU mission, for the latter statement we ask you to tell us how diversity figures into your past and present teaching, recording work, community engagement, and/or life experience, as well as how you would bring issues of diversity to bear on your teaching.

Review of applications will begin on January 16, 2024 and continue until filled.
