The John W. Draper Interdisciplinary Master’s Program in Humanities and Social Thought invites applications for an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow in the area of Literary Cultures. The initial appointment will be for one year beginning September 1, 2012, pending budgetary and administrative approval, renewable annually for a maximum of three years. We seek an outstanding interdisciplinary scholar whose work focuses on intersections among specific literary practices and other forms of cultural production. A strong background in literary theory, philosophy, or cultural studies is essential; an interdisciplinary focus on questions of ethnicity, gender, class, post-colonialism, visual culture, or social space is an advantage. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, teaching three courses a year, supervising theses, advising students, and participating in Program events. Candidates must demonstrate commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship and excellence in teaching, and have completed the Ph.D. no more than three years before the application date. Applications are due April 16, 2012.
Application materials should be submitted to NYU’s online system, accessible through the “Employment” link on the Draper Program’s home page, http://draper.fas.nyu.edu. Please upload a letter of application, c.v., dissertation précis, descriptions of three courses you could teach in our program, and three references.
