The Department of Music at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University–New Brunswick, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in music education at the rank of Assistant Professor. The Music Department at Mason Gross School of the Arts prepares students for fulfilling lives in music, promoting exceptional creative work and cutting-edge research and contributing to the cultural life of our community.
