FACULTY POSITION
Comparative Literature
NYU Shanghai
            
NYU Shanghai seeks to hire a mid-career or senior scholar in Comparative Literature whose focus is colonial and post-colonial literatures.  The search is open to all geographic areas, although scholars with concentrations in areas other than China are of particular interest.

Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. and will have an established record of scholarship in their field.  Teaching experience and a commitment to undergraduate education are essential. This position is part of an initiative to create a strong program in this area through several faculty hires, with the aim of establishing research programs that relate strongly to those at other NYU campuses. The appointment could begin as soon as September 1, 2017 pending administrative and budgetary approvals.

The terms of employment in NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions with respect to research start-up funds and compensation, and they 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.    
 
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, and electronic copies of up to five relevant 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 a reference letter. Senior candidates are not required to submit references at this time. The search will remain open until the position is filled, but review of applications will begin November 1, 2016.
