|Position:||Associate Professor, Full Professor, Other Teaching|
NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for up to two open-ranked positions in History, with a preference for Associate or Full Professor. In each case we seek a scholar with substantial publications, active research, and demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching in the following areas:
1. Chinese History: We seek a scholar with a specialized area of research and teaching in Chinese History of any period, ideally with a transnational, comparative or global approach.
2. History of Science and Technology: The successful candidate will have a particular interest in developing and exploring intellectual connections between the humanities and the social sciences on the one hand, and areas of research and teaching in STEM on the other. A knowledge of Chinese science or technology is preferred but not required. The search will remain open until the position is filled, but review of applications will begin December 1, 2012.
NYU Shanghai is the newest degree-granting campus within NYU's global network. It is the first Sino-US higher education joint venture to grant a degree that is accredited in the US as well as in China. A research university with liberal arts and sciences at its core, it resides in one of the world's great cities that is also a vibrant intellectual community. NYU Shanghai will recruit scholars who are committed to our global vision of transformative teaching and innovative research.
New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, a multi- site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three degree-granting campuses - New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi - complemented by 12 additional academic centers across five continents. Faculty and students circulate within the network in pursuit of common research interests and cross-cultural, interdisciplinary endeavors, both local and global.
The terms of employment are comparable to U.S. institutions. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites of the global network, engaging in both research and teaching opportunities. Tenure/tenure-track faculty may also be members of the History Graduate Faculty in New York. The appointment might begin as soon as August 1, 2013, or could be delayed until August 1, 2014.
Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, representative publications and three letters of reference in PDF format to be considered.
