ARTS AND SCIENCE
New York University

New York University's Animal Studies Initiative, an integral part of the Department of Environmental Studies, invites applications for the position of Faculty Fellow. The appointment will be for one year beginning September 1, 2017, renewable annually for a maximum of three years, pending administrative and budgetary approval. The successful applicant will contribute to the education of undergraduates minoring in Animal Studies, teaching three courses per year, and serving as the advisor to the minors. In addition, the successful candidate will help organize and actively participate in an initiative directed towards developing Animal Studies as a rigorous field of academic inquiry. We welcome candidates from a broad range of academic backgrounds. Primary academic training need not be in Animal Studies, but there must be demonstrable evidence of a sincere and substantive commitment to working in this field. We have special interests in ethics and animals, and animals and the environment.

Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. no more than five years before the appointment date. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2016, and will continue until the search is complete. More info is available at http://animalstudies.as.nyu.edu/page/employment.
