New York University, the Department of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, invites applications for an open-rank position in modern Middle Eastern history, to begin September 1, 2013, pending budgetary and administrative approval. We especially encourage applications from junior and mid-career scholars whose research focuses on the Mashriq (including Egypt) in the “long” 19th century and whose interests would complement the department’s strengths in comparative and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the Middle East and the Muslim world. Candidates must have the Ph.D. by the time of appointment, demonstrate potential for superior scholarly accomplishment, and be prepared to teach a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses and to supervise doctoral dissertation research.
To apply, visit the department website at http://meis.as.nyu.edu/ and use the “Employment” link to submit a detailed cover letter describing research and teaching experience, c.v., writing sample (a published article or a dissertation/book chapter), syllabi, and three letters of recommendation. NYU is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Review of applications will begin on October 01, 2012.
