The Program in Museum Studies, an interdisciplinary program of the Graduate School of Arts and Science at New York University, invites applications for a Faculty Fellow. The initial appointment will be for one year beginning September 1, 2019, with the expectation of annual renewal for three years pending administrative and budgetary approval and satisfactory performance. We seek a strong scholar whose research interests engage the history and theory of museums, and whose knowledge of museums extends beyond his or her area of specialization. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, teaching three Museum Studies courses a year, advising master’s theses, and actively participating in the life of a dynamic program. Teaching experience is required, and professional museum experience is desirable. Ph.D. must have been completed within five years of the date of appointment.
Review of applications will begin on December 3, 2018 and continue until the search is complete. To apply, submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of reference, descriptions of three Museum Studies courses you would like to teach, and a brief paragraph telling us how diversity figures into your past and present teaching, research, community engagement, and your lived experience. Please submit your completed application at the job posting. More information about the department can be found at http://museumstudies.as.nyu.edu.
