We are seeking a dynamic and innovative colleague to join our Education Studies program. The field of specialization for this position is open, but we are particularly interested in candidates whose work focuses on one or more of the following fields: data and education, education equity, education policy, experiential learning, history of education, innovation and transformative education, and social entrepreneurship. We are committed to substantially increasing the proportion of our faculty from historically underrepresented groups as we strive to create the most intellectually diverse, inclusive, and equitable institution that we can, and especially encourage candidates from historically underrepresented groups to apply.

Applications: Please apply online with a letter of application, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, diversity statement (describing how you address diversity, equity, and inclusion in the scope of your teaching and broader work), and names and contact information for three references.

Application review will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.  For best consideration, materials should be submitted no later than Nov 1. If you have any logistical questions, please contact Sue Woube (sw4006@nyu.edu).

  • Deliver engaging and impactful courses primarily at the undergraduate level, embracing diverse perspectives and demonstrating cultural responsiveness. There is an expected 3:3 teaching load with the possibility of reduction for administrative work.
