About Northeastern:

Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the confines of discipline, degree, and campus.

Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.

Northeastern’s comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.

About the Opportunity:

The Department of Music in the College of Arts, Media and Design and the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University announce a search for a tenure-track appointment in Music Technology and Computer Science, Music and Artificial Intelligence specifically, at the rank of Assistant Professor. The appointment will be 75% in Music and 25% in Computer Science.


The new faculty member will be instrumental in forging new curricular paths and developing innovative directions in research and scholarship at the graduate and undergraduate levels and in developing a distinctive profile for Northeastern’s Music Technology programs. We are searching for a colleague in a music department that offers a widely encompassing and flexible series of paths to majoring in music, with a larger view of creativity as inherently collaborative and central to all areas of study.


The candidate will be on a career trajectory towards achieving significant recognition and accomplishment in research and creative practice within the array of disciplines at the intersection of AI and music, including but not limited to deep learning, music information retrieval, computational creativity and music metacreation, with particular emphasis on human interaction. Candidates should be committed to fostering diverse and inclusive environments as well as to promoting experiential learning, which are central to a Northeastern University education. The position has an anticipated start date of Fall 2021.

Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in Music or a related area, including but not limited to Computer Science and Engineering, by appointment start date.
