The Department of Liberal Arts at the Juilliard School seeks applicants for a full-time, non-tenure-track, assistant professor. Successful applicants will teach in the department’s writing, core, and elective curricula. Candidates must have experience in teaching First Year Composition and must be dedicated to the department’s core curriculum, which emphasizes critical reading and writing, cross-cultural thinking, and the humanities and social sciences. A disciplinary specialization in the social sciences, especially political anthropology, cultural anthropology, sociology, geography, or social psychology, is preferred. Opportunities to teach electives in the field of specialization will be provided. The ideal candidate will demonstrate skills in interdisciplinary and collaborative pedagogy. Candidates must have the Ph.D. in hand upon application, must have significant teaching experience as instructor of record and the ability to work with a wide range of constituencies (staff, students, faculty, and administrators) with diplomacy and tact.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach six courses per year. While Juilliard does not grant tenure, new faculty can expect, after two years of service on annual contracts, to earn renewable three-year contracts.

Applicants should submit:

1. a letter of interest that includes a brief discussion of teaching experience, current scholarship, and approaches to teaching and research

2. a curriculum vitae

3. a more detailed statement of teaching philosophy, including an explanation of the manner in which a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging translates into classroom practice (2 pages or 1000 words max).

All materials should be received by April 6, 2021. Late applications may be considered until the position is filled. After an initial review, some applicants will be asked to submit letters of recommendation, and a writing sample. Finalists will be asked to perform a teaching demonstration. Interviews will be held by videoconference. Receipt of materials will be acknowledged by email.

Juilliard Statement on commitment to EDIB: The Juilliard School has an ongoing commitment to the principles and practices of diversity and inclusiveness throughout the community and strongly encourages applications from candidates who would enhance the diversity of the School's faculty.
