Artist-Teacher of Horn, Trombone, or Trumpet

The School of Music at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver campus seeks to appoint an artist-teacher of Horn, Trombone, or Trumpet to a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning July 1, 2017.

Review of applications may continue until this position is filled.
 

Situated in a beautiful, culturally diverse metropolis, the School offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs, including B.Mus., M.Mus., and D.M.A. degrees in brass performance. For information about the UBC School of Music, visit www.music.ubc.ca.

The new faculty member will play a leading role in the brass area. We seek an accomplished performer and experienced educator with a compelling record that includes: superior artistic achievement and significant national or international profile; effective and innovative teaching of solo, chamber, and orchestral repertoires in university and festival contexts; and successful collaborations with other brass artists in performance and teaching. The selected candidate’s instrument, repertoire expertise, organizational, and communication skills will complement existing faculty strengths to galvanize student achievement and lead curriculum innovation and growth in the brass area. A graduate degree is expected (D.M.A. preferred); significant high-profile professional experience is required, and may be accepted as equivalent to a graduate degree.

Duties include undergraduate and graduate studio instruction; brass chamber music coaching and coordination; supervision of masters and doctoral brass students; coordination and curriculum leadership in the brass area; active student recruitment (regionally, nationally, and internationally); service on School and University committees; and ongoing performance/research activity and professional development consistent with successful teaching and productive service to the School and University.

Applicants should apply online by January 15, 2017 through the UBC Faculty careers website: www.facultycareers.ubc.ca/24906 and they must be prepared to upload (in the following order): a letter of application, CV, summary of teaching experience and statement of teaching philosophy, and a list of web links to video recordings (including live performances) that demonstrate performance achievement and versatility. Commercial audio and DVD recordings may also be sent by post, but return is not guaranteed. Representative teaching materials and evidence of teaching effectiveness will be requested at a later date from selected applicants. (Please note that original deadline of January 6 has been extended to January 15, even though original deadline remains on the Application Portal.)

In addition, three confidential letters of recommendation must be sent directly by referees via email to brass.search@ubc.ca by the same deadline. Review of applications may continue until the position is filled. Campus interviews will occur in early 2017.

The position is subject to final budgetary approval. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
