Applications are being accepted for an appointment as Faculty Fellow in the Irish and Irish-American Studies Program in NYU's College of Arts and Sciences.
The Irish Studies Program is located within Glucksman Ireland House, NYU's Center for Irish and Irish-American Studies.
The appointment will begin, pending final budgetary and administrative approval, in September 2016.
This is a term appointment, renewable annually for up to three years.
The Faculty Fellow in Global Irish Studies should have received the Ph.D. no earlier than September 1, 2013. In no cases will an appointment be made to a candidate without the Ph.D.
The position of Faculty Fellow in Global Irish Studies will support our undergraduate Minor in Irish Studies, though we hope that Fellows might also contribute to our MA Program in Irish and Irish-American Studies. The Faculty Fellow will teach three courses per year (2/1 or 1/2, on the semester calendar), but will also be eligible to teach in either the six-week Summer Sessions in New York or on our Summer in Dublin Program on the campus of Trinity College, Dublin.
Field of Study
The Irish Studies Program at New York University seeks to complement current research strengths in the study of Ireland and its global diaspora by appointing as Faculty Fellow an early career scholar whose research and teaching can engage and extend existing strengths in relevant areas of social science and humanities at NYU. Across a wide range of disciplines, the study of Ireland has provoked methodological innovation and refinement; we seek a scholar whose approach can illuminate topics in Irish Studies research from innovatory perspectives, and perhaps introduce new agendas to the field.
We invite applications from any primary field of study (Sociology, Anthropology, History, International Relations, Urban Humanities) where research on topics central to Irish Studies as a global field of inquiry can be advanced. Thus scholars of globalization, migration, inequality, labor, gender and sexuality, kinship, capitalism, and conflict resolution from an Irish and a global Irish comparative perspective are especially encouraged. We welcome applicants with skills in digital humanities.
Because the Faculty Fellow in Global Irish Studies will typically teach courses cross-listed with other Departments and Programs, applicants are encouraged to become familiar with the Departments, Programs, and Research Centers relevant to their own field of research and teaching within NYU:

Tips for using the online application system
- You must enter the names and email addresses of your referees before you may upload any documents. Referees may be edited before you submit your final application and they are notified of your request, but you must remember to change them in advance of submission.
- Referees will not be contacted and may not upload references until you submit your final application. Please keep this in mind in terms of the deadline and turn around time for references. You will want to request your references directly with referees in advance of official notification to work with the hiring timeline.
- When using online document management/credentials services such as Interfolio, please enter the credential service-supplied, reference-specific email address instead of the referee's individual email address in the referee contact field.
