The School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (SIAS) at the University of Washington Tacoma invites applications for a competitively searched, non-tenure track, Part-Time Lecturer in Music, with an immediate need to teach classes in Music, Community, and Culture. We are seeking one or more candidates to join our faculty on a part-time basis (33%-67%, or 3-6 classes) for a 9-month service period. Appointments may be for one to three years, and may be renewed based on instructional need. These positions are pending budgetary approval.

The Tacoma campus of the University of Washington was founded in 1990 with an interdisciplinary approach at its foundation. It has evolved into a thriving downtown campus that serves students of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds in the South Puget Sound. Faculty have access to the resources of a major research university, including an extensive library system, but work and teach within a small campus setting. Our campus provides a unique environment for the development of creative teaching, research and community collaborations. The campus commitment to equity and inclusion is central to maintaining an atmosphere where students, staff, and faculty find abundant opportunities for intellectual, personal and professional growth within our campus and broader community.
