Two Tenure Track Positions
Contemporary Global Media – East Asia Emphasis

NYU Shanghai is seeking to fill two tenure-track positions in the field of Contemporary Global Media with a special emphasis on East Asia at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning in the Fall Semester of 2016. We are seeking scholars who can contribute broadly to the curriculum in media studies and interactive media arts. Scholars with focuses in one or more of the following are of particular interest: East Asian media institutions, alternative media practices such as critical making, and contemporary forms of public culture within the region. NYU Shanghai is also looking for a commitment to research and teaching in a cross-cultural context and curriculum, and the building of new research collections. An interest in, and experience with, interdisciplinary and collaborative research is desirable, while knowledge of urban China is especially welcome. NYU Shanghai is developing an active interdisciplinary group working with other NYU faculty in New York, Abu Dhabi, and other NYU Global Studies sites. The faculty member occupying this position will play a key role in the growth of that work group. Preferred candidates will have an active research agenda and a demonstrated interest in interdisciplinary scholarship, as well as expertise in project-based pedagogy. Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D.

The terms of employment in NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions in terms of research start-up funds and compensation, and include housing subsidies and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites of the NYU global network, engaging in both research and teaching.

Review of applications will begin November 1, 2015 and will continue until the position is filled. To be considered, applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, separate statements of research and teaching interests (no more than three pages each), and electronic copies of representative publications. To complete the online process, applicants will be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Each referee will be contacted to upload their reference letter.
