Hi all,
My department, Global Studies, is hiring jointly with International
Affairs, at The New School. Please circulate widely. It would be a great
job for a geographer!
Laura Liu
Associate Professor of Global Studies & Geography
80 5th Avenue, Room 510, New York, NY 10011
212.229.5100 ext. 2276


*Assistant Professor of International Affairs and Global

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. Information about The New School and the Studley Graduate
Program in International Affairs can be found at:
and Global Studies at: 

The New School is committed to actively recruiting from a diverse pool of

The New School, a private university in New York City, serves undergraduate

bringing social science research and practices in design to studying issues
of our time and challenging students to become engaged global citizens
dedicated to contributing to the public good.
- A Ph.D. in one of the social sciences (including but not limited to
political science, economics, anthropology, sociology, and geography),
