Liberal Studies at New York University invites applications for two Clinical Assistant Professor positions to begin September 1, 2022, pending administrative and budgetary approval.

The Liberal Studies Core is a dynamic liberal arts curriculum that provides a global and interdisciplinary foundation for nearly 100 NYU majors. The Global Liberal Studies Bachelor of Arts is an innovative global studies major grounded in the spatial, conceptual, and temporal understandings of a highly interconnected world, with a program of study that is distinguished by experiential learning, study away, and independent research focused in an interdisciplinary concentration. In both the LS Core and the GLS Major, small, seminar-style classes and close faculty-student interaction ensure the benefits of a liberal arts college within a large urban research university. We are especially interested in hiring qualified candidates who can contribute through their research, teaching and service to the diversity and excellence of the Liberal Studies community.

We seek applicants for the following positions:

Writing and Translation:
Ph.D. or M.F.A. in Writing Studies, Translation Studies, Creative Writing, or related field. Candidates must have the ability to teach in the first year writing sequence of the Core Curriculum with a global, interdisciplinary, and intersectional emphasis. Candidates must have the ability to teach upper-division seminars focusing on theoretical and/or applied aspects of translation and to contribute to the development of a new minor in translation studies.

Writing and Screenwriting and/or Digital Storytelling:
Ph.D. or M.F.A. in Writing Studies, Cinema and Media Studies, Creative Writing, or related field. Candidates must have the ability to teach with a global, interdisciplinary, and intersectional emphasis in both the first year writing sequence of the Core Curriculum and upper-division Global Liberal Studies seminars in screenwriting, documentary scriptwriting, digital storytelling, and/or multimedia storytelling.

Minimum qualifications: Ph.D. or M.F.A. by the date of appointment; three years of college-level teaching experience; and demonstrated excellence in teaching. We are especially interested in qualified candidates who share Liberal Studies’ commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and who can contribute to the diversity of intellectual life in LS and NYU. Candidates must present demonstrated experience and commitment to interdisciplinarity, intersectionality, and a teaching approach informed by global perspectives. Publications and evidence of outstanding scholarship and relevant professional activity are strongly encouraged.

All Liberal Studies full-time faculty hold renewable term contracts, initially three years, and later five years in duration. Faculty are eligible for promotion within the Clinical faculty ranks (Assistant, Associate, Full). Faculty normally teach three classes per semester, advise undergraduates, and contribute service to Liberal Studies and to the University.

Applications include ONLY (1) a cover letter, (2) a current c.v., and (3) a Diversity and Inclusion Statement addressing past and/or potential future contributions to diversity through teaching, professional activity, and/or service (additional information can be found here http://as.nyu.edu/departments/facultydiversity/recruitment/diversity-statements.html).
