Contract:

The Department of Music at the University of Prince Edward Island invites applications for a tenure-track position (beginning July 1, 2022) in Applied Brass. We are seeking a dynamic performer and pedagogue to invigorate our brass studio and to offer leadership to the PEI musical community. Duties include the instruction of courses in applied brass, brass pedagogy, and instrumental conducting, plus assistance with the department’s recruitment and outreach activities. Additional teaching duties based on the strengths of the successful candidate are normally assigned, so the ability to teach in other areas of our music curriculum would be a strong asset. The successful applicant will hold a doctoral degree in brass (or be close to completion) and demonstrate performance artistry and a commitment to excellence in undergraduate teaching. This position is subject to final budgetary approval.

The University of Prince Edward Island is recognized as a leading, innovative centre of excellence in learning, teaching, scholarship, and research. While it is strongly connected to the vibrant social and cultural environment of Prince Edward Island, it enjoys a reputation that extends far beyond the Island’s shores.

The University is located in the provincial capital of Charlottetown, a bustling tourist destination that boasts the amenities of a much larger city, including excellent theatre, galleries, music, and dining possibilities. A province-wide hiking and biking trail runs right along the UPEI campus, and the National Park beaches and world-famous golf courses are a short drive away. Charlottetown and its surrounding communities offer charming and affordable housing options, a low crime rate, and a semi-rural lifestyle that is second to none.

Also, please arrange to have three current letters of reference sent directly to the address below:
