Applicants should have a university degree in music, teaching experience, and experience performing as soloist in chamber groups or with symphony orchestras. Teaching will take place in English, though knowledge of Arabic is also desirable.

Applicants should send their resume and supporting material (video recordings of teaching, performances, etc.) to this email address.

Further information regarding the position can be found here.

In 1999, Daniel Barenboim and the late Palestinian Edward W. Said created a workshop for young musicians from the Arab world and Israel. As a result, The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra was created, made up of Arab and Israeli musicians, together with members from other countries. One of its main missions is to show that music can break barriers.Since Edward W. Said’s untimely death in 2003, his widow Mariam C. Said has kept the project going with Daniel Barenboim. Now a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization based in New York City, The Barenboim-Said Foundation (USA) also funds other programs, including a music school in Ramallah, Palestine, and academic workshops in Israel.
