Job description

NYU’s Global Institute for Advanced Study plans to hire 3 post-doctoral fellows for the academic year 2018-2019, one each, in philosophy, sociology and economics. These fellows, funded by the Berggruen Institute in relation to its programs around the Great Transformations, will help in the first stages of a project on the ethical and policy issues raised by long-term changes in the labor market. The basic framework for the project is described in a document available at http://appiah.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/NYU-Hard-Problem.pdf.

The central questions are whether we need to find new social and economic forms that meet the need to (1) produce goods and (2) provide incomes, while providing frameworks for (3) sociability and (4) significance; and, if so, what the major normative issues are that we will face in doing that. Fellows will work under the guidance of Professor K. Anthony Appiah and a small group of senior scholars to produce literature reviews and a preliminary paper for their respective fields. NYU will provide office space and assistance in housing and a stipend of $75,000.  Applicants should submit a CV and a one-page letter of interest as well as one piece of recent published work by March 16 .

Finalists will be interviewed by Skype, probably in March. We aim to make offers by the beginning of May.
