George Fox University announces a tenure-track faculty position in Music, to begin in August 2018. The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching courses in our highly successful music education program, as well as providing leadership for one or more of our musical ensembles.

George Fox University, a Christ-centered community, prepares students spiritually, academically, and professionally to think with clarity, act with integrity, and serve with passion. Professors teach all truth as God's truth, integrating all fields of learning around the person and work of Jesus Christ, bringing the divine revelations through sense, reason, and intuition to the confirming test of Scripture. As a Christ-centered community, George Fox University is an institution that values diversity as an essential dimension of God's design for human communities. In seeking to become a more inclusive community, we especially encourage applications from women and candidates from racial and ethnic backgrounds that are underrepresented on our faculty.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Direct the University Band and Music Education programs
  • Teach Music Education courses such as Methods, Instrumental and Choral Techniques, and Foundations of Music Education.

  • A master's in Music, Conducting, Music Education, or other relevant field is required; a doctorate in one of these areas is preferred.
  • Demonstrated excellence in teaching and instrumental conducting at the secondary school level or university level is essential. Familiarity with and a strong reputation in the music education community in the Pacific Northwest is desirable but not required.
  • A commitment to working with a diverse population of students (including students of color, first-generation college students, international students, etc.) is essential; demonstrated experience in this area is preferred.
  • A record of relevant professional activities (clinics, adjudication, etc.) is preferred.
