Faculty Position Announcement at The New School
Professor (field open)
School of Undergraduate Studies, New School for General Studies
The New School is seeking up to two senior-rank faculty members committed to innovative undergraduate education that links liberal learning, civic engagement, and social and professional practice. Candidates would join the undergraduate faculty of a newly integrated division that merges The New School for General Studies (the university's founding division) with Milano, the New School for Management and Urban Policy. The division is an innovative venture organized around interdisciplinary engagement with social issues and public culture. It comprises not only undergraduate programs, but also graduate-professional faculties in media studies, writing, international affairs, urban policy, non-profit management, and the teaching of English as a second language. The division's School of Undergraduate Studies includes both a liberal arts bachelor's program designed to be accessible to adult, "non-traditional" students and interdisciplinary, issue-oriented programs in environmental, urban, and global studies. Minimum Qualifications: Candidates' primary appointment would be in the undergraduate faculty, although joint appointment is possible with other programs in the division. The search is open to scholars from all fields, but there is particular interest in interdisciplinary, engaged scholars who bridge academic work with social, professional, and public cultural practice. Especially important is the candidates' commitment to the role of undergraduate education in a diverse, complex democracy and to the division's goal of connecting liberal, practical, professional, and civic learning through innovative, problem-based curricula. This initiative is being undertaken in close collaboration with Eugene Lang College The New School for the Liberal Arts and Parsons The New School for Design, together with the university's three performance schools.
Review of applications will start on March 8 and will continue until the position is filled. The starting date for the position is July 1, 2011.
The decision to hire is subject to budget approval.
