NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for an OPEN RANK tenure/tenure-track faculty appointment to its Literature Program, in the field of Global Literature. We are particularly interested in scholars whose research and teaching stretch across languages and cultures, spanning different disciplines, and whose critical inclination and training are comparative. A strong background in, as well as scholarly and pedagogical commitment to, Chinese literature and culture of any period, are highly desirable as well. We seek faculty who will establish and maintain an active research profile, with a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching, and who are willing to commit their energy and experience to building this new program in dialogue with faculty from other disciplines. 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 Department of Comparative Literature Graduate Faculty at NYU. 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.
