Clinical Assistant Professor, with a focus on Intersectional Social Justice
XE: Experimental Humanities & Social Engagement, an interdisciplinary master’s program housed in the Graduate School of Arts and Science at New York University, invites applications for a Clinical Assistant Professor whose research and teaching focuses on the histories and material processes of contemporary social justice, in terms of race, gender, or environment, and is rooted in interdisciplinary methodologies drawn from one or more of the social sciences. The appointment is expected to begin September 1, 2022, pending budgetary and administrative approval.
XE fosters the combination of creativity and criticality with a keen interest in social engagement of various forms. We seek outstanding interdisciplinary scholars whose work may not neatly align with traditional disciplines, who are committed to exploring new pedagogies, to program building and curricular innovation, and to contributing centrally to the intellectual and creative cultures of a tightly-knit community of experimental thinkers and makers. The successful candidate will be working at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary and intersectional inquiry into one or more of such critical areas as: race, gender and sexuality, food, health, displacement and migration, indigenous rights, decolonization, incarceration, planetary forces, species, climate.
The Faculty of Arts and Science at NYU is at the heart of a leading research university that spans the globe. We seek scholars of the highest caliber, who embody the diversity of the United States as well as the global society in which we live. Because broad diversity is essential for creating an inclusive climate, we are committed to the fair treatment of and equal access to opportunity and advancement for all, and we will assess the many qualifications of all applicants. We strongly encourage 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.

Candidates must be committed to interdisciplinarity in scholarship. Candidates must also demonstrate excellence in teaching and mentorship. While PhDs are required, candidates may also be practicing artists or public-facing intellectuals, with a strong critical practice in the field of intersectional social justice. XE is a stand-alone, student-centered master’s program and clinical faculty teach three courses per semester, advise and mentor students, organize public programs, and participate actively in shaping the life of the program.
