New York University

The Department of English at New York University seeks to appoint a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the field of Contemporary Multi-ethnic American Literature effective September 1st, 2018, pending administrative and budgetary approval.  

We are particularly interested in candidates who work on Asian American, African American, Latina/Latino, and/or indigenous authors in comparative and/or transnational contexts.  Work on women of color feminist methodologies or that crosses interdisciplinary boundaries, such as urban studies or visual studies, is desirable.  

The successful candidate will demonstrate scholarly excellence and a commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching, and must have the PhD in hand by September 1, 2018. The search committee is especially interested to hear from candidates who will bring to their research and teaching the diverse perspectives that come from non-traditional educational backgrounds or an understanding of the experience of those under-represented in higher education. Candidates may include in their cover letter information about how they will contribute to the building of a broadly diverse educational environment at NYU. Those wishing to be considered should submit a letter of application, CV, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample of up to 9,000 words. Materials are to be uploaded via the “Employment” link on the NYU Department of English web site: http://english.as.nyu.edu. All applications will be acknowledged, and the committee will begin reviewing applications on September 18, 2017. The deadline for applications is October 2, 2017.  

The Faculty of Arts and Science at NYU is at the heart of a leading research university that spans the globe. We seek scholars of the highest caliber, who embody the diversity of the United States as well as the global society in which we live. We strongly encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender and sexual identity, or any other legally protected basis. NYU affirms the value of differing perspectives on the world as we strive to build the strongest possible university with the widest reach.
