The Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs in the Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor, beginning on July 1, 2015. The New School is strongly committed to diversity in higher education and particularly invites applications from those individuals who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our intellectual community through research, teaching, and service.

The New School, a private university in New York City’s Greenwich Village, serves undergraduate and graduate students across a range of fields with a commitment to bringing practices in design and social research to studying issues of our time and challenging students to become engaged citizens dedicated to solving programs and contributing to the public good.  The Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs is a multidisciplinary Master’s level program within the Milano School that bridges critical theory and practical training. Its approach is distinctive in the New School tradition: reflective, iconoclastic, and morally engaged. The program was recently named one of the country’s top international affairs programs by the Foreign Policy Association. The program offers five concentrations: Cities and Social Justice, Conflict and Security, Development, Governance and Rights, and Media and Culture.

Minimum Qualifications:  The successful candidate will be a social scientist with an active agenda of research and publication and a strong background in economics, including in areas such as institutional economics, development economics, and political economy. Candidates should have a research focus on geographical regions outside of Europe and the United States, particularly the Middle East. We encourage applications from candidates whose research crosses disciplines and whose scholarly work provides a critical understanding of contemporary issues in international affairs. While the position is primarily dedicated to supporting the International Affairs MA/MS program, faculty are expected to teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.  A Ph.D. in one of the social sciences (including but not limited to political science, economics, anthropology, sociology, and geography) is required.

Preferred Qualifications:   The New School is committed to a policy of equal opportunity in all its activities and programs, including employment and promotion. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, physical handicap, veteran or marital status. Applications are strongly encouraged from individuals who belong to groups historically underrepresented in higher education.

This position is dependent on final budget approval from the Office of the Provost.

In addition to a dynamic and progressive work environment, The New School offers a competitive benefits package, including medical and dental insurance, retirement plans, flexible spending accounts and a tuition waiver. We encourage a healthy work/life balance and offer employee assistance services, health and well-being programs and over four weeks of vacation time per year.
