Full-Time Clinical Assistant Professor in First-Year Program (Writing and Visual Arts)

New York University

The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University invites applications for a full-time Clinical Assistant Professor to teach in our first-year program, beginning on September 1, 2013. We seek scholars who have extensive experience and success in teaching expository writing and the visual arts, cinema, photography or visual culture more broadly.

The position is a non-tenure track but renewable contract line and the candidate would become an on-going member of the full-time faculty of the school. The teaching load for this position is four courses a year in addition to a co-curricular or administrative project with students often related to the applicant’s area of expertise. Thus this position will consist of two theme-based first-year writing seminars; one first-year interdisciplinary seminar; and an interdisciplinary seminar, an advanced writing course, or an arts workshop, based on the applicant’s interest and expertise.  In addition, the position involves serving as an adviser for 20–25 students. 

The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in interdisciplinary teaching and in advising students in designing individualized programs of study.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in hand by September 1, 2013, (open field) and demonstrated excellence in teaching expository writing at the college or university level. Experience in academic advising at the college or university level is also desirable.

Founded in 1972, Gallatin is a liberal arts college of 1,400 undergraduate students and 200 Masters students which forms a part of the major research university of NYU. Its innovative B.A. and M.A. programs in individualized study encourage students to develop an integrated, interdisciplinary program of study that combines courses taken in the various schools of NYU with independent studies, internships, and Gallatin’s own interdisciplinary seminars, writing courses and arts workshops. The School emphasizes excellent teaching, intensive student advising and mentoring, and a unique combination of program flexibility and academic rigor.
