Clinical Assistant Professor in Social and Political Philosophy or Political Theory
Liberal Studies
New York University Arts and Science


Liberal Studies at New York University invites applications for a Clinical Assistant Professor position to begin September 1, 2023, 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 position:
 
SOCIAL AND POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY OR POLITICAL THEORY 

PhD in Philosophy, History, or Politics, with a focus on contemporary comparative political theory or global justice theory. Candidates must have the ability to develop upper-division seminars that include non-Western approaches to political theory, political philosophy, or global justice in the Politics, Rights and Development concentration. Candidates are also expected to draw on ancient and early modern sources in their teaching with a global, interdisciplinary emphasis in the Global Works and Society sequence of the Core Curriculum. Candidates must embrace interdisciplinary and intersectional approaches from a variety of global perspectives and must have the ability to examine relationships of power and to interrogate the historical roots of current challenges. 

Minimum qualifications: PhD 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 herehttp://as.nyu.edu/departments/facultydiversity/recruitment/diversity-statements.html). Complete applications must be recorded by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (US), November 1st, 2022. Applications recorded after this deadline will not be considered.
