We seek applicants for the following position: World Cultures, Arts and Literatures

PhD in Classics, Foreign Language Literatures, English, Comparative Literature, World Literature, Art History with literature teaching experience, or Anthropology with arts focus. Candidates should have the ability to teach the arts produced across the globe in a variety of artistic media from antiquity to the early 18th century in our Cultural Foundations I and II sequence. Candidates with the ability to teach upper-division seminars in their areas of expertise also welcome.

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 (Associate, Full). Faculty normally teach three classes per semester, advise undergraduates, and contribute service to Liberal Studies and to the University.

Liberal Studies offers a global liberal arts curriculum at sites around the globe in the context of a leading research university. We seek scholar/educators of the highest caliber whose work reflects an interest in global diversity. Liberal Studies strongly encourages 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.
