Assistant Professor of International Affairs and Global Studies, New School
Posted: November 13, 2019

Requisition Number: 0106071581
Location New York City
Position Type: Full Time Faculty
Position Status: Full-Time
Department: SPE/Dean's Office

Responsibilities: The Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs (SGPIA) and the Global Studies Program
of The New School invite applications for a renewable-term (non-tenure track) faculty position as
Assistant Professor of International Affairs and Global Studies beginning on July 1, 2020.
We are seeking a scholar from any of the disciplines in the social sciences with an active agenda
of research and publication relevant to the two programs, and a record of excellent teaching. We
encourage applications from candidates whose research crosses disciplines and works with
heterodox/non-mainstream theoretical frameworks (such as feminist, post-colonial/decolonial,
non-Western, or indigenous approaches, among others). We are interested in candidates who
pursue innovative research agendas that engage with urgent contemporary challenges, and who
explore creative pedagogies. A particular research focus is not required. However, there are
fields that would be of particular interest, including: environmental studies, science and
technology studies, legal studies and indigenous studies. Research areas of interest include
global justice, sustainability, and digital technologies. A focus on the Global South would be
preferred, particularly China and the Middle East region.
The teaching load is five graduate/undergraduate courses per year or its equivalent, plus
advising students and supervising theses in both programs. The successful candidate should
also demonstrate an interest and aptitude for curriculum development and rotational faculty
leadership roles.
The position would be a joint appointment to SGPIA that offers graduate degrees and the Global
Studies program that serves undergraduates. The position is homed in SGPIA in the Schools of
Public Engagement but will involve participating in and contributing to teaching, advising and
service in both faculties. Both are interdisciplinary programs that include faculty with diverse
disciplinary backgrounds in the social sciences and the humanities. Both programs bridge critical
theory and practical training and investigate complex global processes and issues. The approach
is distinctive in the New School tradition: reflective, iconoclastic, and socially engaged.
