AUSSCHREIBUNG – CIRMMT Director Search, McGill University, Montreal, Canada


From: Mary-Beth Campbell, Ms.
Subject: CIRMMT Director Search
Date: 2014 March 11 at 3:18:18 PM EDT

Dear members of the CIRMMT community,
I’m writing to provide you with some information regarding the
Directorship of CIRMMT. Prof. Marcelo Wanderley has indicated that he
will not renew his term as Director after this year. I am extremely
grateful to him for having taken on this important responsibility
during an important period in CIRMMT’s history. Following discussions
with CIRMMT Executive and with the university and following approval
by the CIRMMT Board we are launching a search for a new Director.

This will be a tenure-stream position in the Schulich School of Music
in the Digital Humanities in Music. It is linked to a Tier 1 or 2
Canada Research Chair in the Digital Humanities in Music (i.e. the
successful candidate will be nominated for a CRC) at the level of
Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. The Digital Humanities are a
strategic research area at McGill and at the Schulich School of Music.
Please note that we are defining the digital humanities in music as
broadly as possible, to include the interaction between computing and
musicology, theory, ethnomusicology, performance, pedagogy and/or
information science.

The position will be posted as of Thursday, March 13, 2014.
We would like to ask for your help in spreading the word as widely as
possible and will provide a template text to use for email messages,
if you wish. In order to track the applications, I would like to ask
you to let us know at
of any outstanding candidates that you
have contacted. This will help us to know who may be interested and
to monitor whether they have applied or not.

It is extremely important that we recruit the finest possible
candidate to lead CIRMMT into the future. Please do your utmost to
help us reach qualified candidates.

With best regards,

Sean Ferguson
Chair, CIRMMT Board
Dean, Schulich School of Music

Mary-Beth Campbell | Faculty Administrator | Deans Office | Schulich
School of Music | McGill University |dean.music@mcgill.ca

additional information:
The Schulich School of Music invites applications for the position of
Director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and
Technology, for an initial 3-year term, renewable. The position will be
a tenured or tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant,
Associate, or Full Professor specializing in the digital humanities in
music, broadly defined to include musicology, music analysis,
performance, pedagogy, or information science. Candidates with diverse
perspectives on the intersection between computing and the humanities in
music are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be
nominated for a Canada Research Chair (SSHRC Tier I or II) in the
Digital Humanities in Music.
We seek individuals with an international profile who will maintain a
high level of professional activity in the field and are able to teach
courses and supervise students in university programs up to the doctoral
level. Applicants must have a passionate commitment to interdisciplinary
collaboration and a significant record of accomplishment in scientific-
and/or humanities- based research related to sound and music, as well as
a demonstrated ability to obtain research funding. The successful
candidate will show strong leadership and have a proven track record as
an effective resource manager, team builder, communicator, and
administrator capable of leading a complex research enterprise. He or
she will be familiar with multiple research paradigms (fine arts,
humanities, science and technology) and will have experience with
constructing and overseeing large research budgets. Fluency in French
and English is an asset.
