The Mary Pappert School of Music at Duquesne University invites nominations and applications for a tenure-track position (nine-month contract). We seek an accomplished and collegial musician with demonstrated ability to provide leadership among all facets of an outstanding university choral program, including recruiting.

• Coordinate and lead choral ensembles (Voices of Spirit, Men's Pappert Chorale, Women's Pappert Chorale); partner with voice, opera, and Spiritan Campus Ministry offerings;
• Teach related courses based on areas of expertise and the needs of the School of Music-such as Choral Conducting, Choral Literature, and Advanced Choral Methods;
• Establish and maintain positive relationships with secondary school choral programs in the state and region;
• Build relationships within a vibrant community of choral organizations across the Greater Pittsburgh Area.

The School of Music-accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music-is a recognized national leader, offering degrees in performance, music education, music technology, sacred music, and music therapy. Duquesne University is committed to attracting, retaining, and developing a diverse faculty that reflects contemporary society, serves our academic mission, and enriches our campus community. As a charter member of the Ohio, Western PA, and West Virginia Higher Education Recruitment Consortium, we encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups, and support dual-career couples. Motivated by its Catholic and Spiritan identity, Duquesne values equality of opportunity both as an educational institution and as an employer. Founded in 1878 by its sponsoring religious community-the Congregation of the Holy Spirit-Duquesne University is Catholic in mission and ecumenical in spirit. Its Mission Statement commits the University to "serving God by serving students-through commitment to excellence in liberal and professional education, through profound concern for moral and spiritual values, through the maintenance of an ecumenical atmosphere open to diversity, and through service to the Church, the community, the nation, and the world." Applicants for this position should describe how they might support and contribute to this mission.

Candidates must hold an earned doctorate in music, demonstrate a track record of teaching excellence, and present an ongoing creative/scholarly agenda. Duquesne University uses Interfolio for the electronic submission of application materials. Complete materials include a letter of application, current curriculum vitae, the names and contact information for at least three professional references, and two video recordings-a recent rehearsal and a recent performance. (We ask that recordings be limited to 15 minutes each. YouTube links may be provided in place of one or both submitted recordings.) Review of complete application materials will begin January 5, 2015, and will continue until the position is filled. The anticipated employment date is August 15, 2015.  Application materials should be submitted to: http://apply.interfolio.com/28075
