Full-Time Faculty Positions

Extended Position Description

The Liberal Studies Program at New York University invites applications for up to five full-time faculty positions to begin September 1, 2012, pending administrative and budgetary approval.

Liberal Studies offers an innovative global core program (more about the Liberal Studies core curriculum) whose students may complete their degrees in any of NYU’s liberal arts programs, and the Bachelor of Arts in Global Liberal Studies, which is establishing itself among NYU’s range of premier liberal arts degrees. (More about the Global Liberal Studies curriculum).

We seek colleagues in the following areas who will teach both courses in the global core and, as needed, more advanced classes in the associated fields of specialization listed below:

* Cultural Foundations I and II in the core; upper division specialization in Pre-modern Near Eastern, African, or Central Asian Studies strongly preferred
* Life Science in the core; upper division specialization in Global Health Policy or related area strongly preferred
* Social Foundations I and II in the core; upper division specialization in Pre-modern Near Eastern, African, or Central Asian Studies strongly preferred
* Social Foundations in the core; upper division specialization in Economic History or International Law strongly preferred
* Writing in the core; upper division specialization in Translation Studies or related area strongly preferred

Liberal Studies is an interdisciplinary program, and we welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Liberal Studies offers the Bachelor of Arts in Global Liberal Studies, and also houses a two-year, core curriculum program, the great majority of whose students continue their studies in NYU’s College of Arts and Science.

Minimum qualifications: a Ph.D. or other appropriate terminal degree in hand by the date of appointment; three years of college-level teaching experience; and demonstrated excellence in teaching.  Publications or other evidences of outstanding scholarship, creative work, or relevant professional activity are preferred.
All Liberal Studies full-time faculty hold renewable term contracts, initially three years, and later potentially five years, in duration. There is no limit to the number of times a contract may be renewed, contingent upon satisfactory performance. Faculty normally teach three classes per semester. Faculty also are expected to remain engaged in their fields of expertise, to advise undergraduates, and to contribute service to the program and to the University.
