Description

NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for a tenure-track or tenured position at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor in Media Anthropology in the University's Global China Studies Program, starting Fall 2022. The Global China Studies program is a 4-year undergraduate major at NYU Shanghai that provides students with an intellectual foundation in Chinese history, language and society. Beyond the scope of conventional area studies, this innovative interdisciplinary major allows students to cultivate critical skills and up-to-date knowledge about China. It aims at deepening their understanding of China's interactions with the wider world as well as comprehending the trends within China, at individual, societal, state, and global levels, and in the context of socio-economic, religious, cultural, and political transformations.

Qualifications

We seek candidates who have completed a Ph.D. (or will finish a Ph.D. at the start of their appointment in Fall 2022) in anthropology, media and communication studies, or a closely related discipline. Their research profile and agenda should include a focus on China. We invite applications from candidates specialized in methodologically innovative ethnographic, interpretive methods with broad research topics. We have special interest in those with expertise in digital media, cultural institutions, urbanism, and/or media and cyber infrastructure. We expect the candidate's main research field to be contemporary China, but historical perspectives and analysis could also be part of teaching and research plans.

The selected candidate is expected to teach undergraduate foundation courses that serve the University's core curriculum on China, seminar courses that advance research and analytical skills on topics related to China, and supervise senior capstone thesis. The candidate will also engage in campus- wide research initiatives, student activities and service work.

Applicants will submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research, statement of teaching interests, and at least one writing sample via Interfolio. Additionally, applicants will be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Each referee will be contacted to upload a reference letter through Interfolio.

Applications may be received until November 30, 2021. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. If you have any questions, please email the NYU Shanghai NY Office of Faculty Recruitment shanghai.faculty.recruitment@nyu.edu.
