Assistant/Associate Professor of Voice (Classical/Musical Theatre) The University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites
applications for a tenure-track appointment for an artist-teacher
in voice (soprano, mezzo-soprano, or alto/contralto) for classical
and musical theatre repertoire to begin on August 12, 2019. The
primary teaching responsibility of this position will be to
recruit, teach, and offer regular studio classes to voice majors
and minors, as well as to teach courses in musical theatre.
Qualifications: Candidates must hold a
terminal degree, or an appropriate graduate degree with
commensurate professional experience and be committed to
undergraduate teaching. Candidates who have experience and pedagogy
expertise in classical and contemporary styles are especially
desirable, and previous teaching of studio voice at the

given to candidates who can demonstrate success with teaching
inexperienced singers and with developing a robust voice studio.
The Department of Music places a premium on collegiality and
collaboration; accordingly, particular attention will be afforded

incorporates a commitment to diversity in higher education are
particularly encouraged to apply.
Responsibilities: Duties include
teaching private voice to undergraduate students in classical and
musical theater traditions; work with theater and dance faculty and
staff; recruit and retain excellent students; and teach related
courses in vocal pedagogy or other areas of interest. Additional
duties may be assigned commensurate with the candidate's expertise
and the department's curricular, service, and community outreach
needs. The successful candidate will demonstrate either potential
for (Assistant rank) or an established record of (Associate rank)
significant contributions to the field through creative activity
and/or scholarship. Previous success in recruiting and teaching
voice at the collegiate level is strongly preferred, particularly
for those submitting credentials for the rank of associate
professor. Candidates should demonstrate a strong commitment to
developing a studio of undergraduates, including a diverse
population of first-generation students, within the context of an
urban research university.
