The Religious Studies Program in the Faculty of Arts and Science at New
York University invites applications for an appointment as an Assistant
Professor/Faculty Fellow. The appointment will be for one year beginning
September 1, 2013, subject to renewal for up to two additional years,
pending administrative and budgetary approval. Candidates must have
completed a Ph.D. no earlier than three years before the date of
appointment, have a strong commitment to teaching and participating in
the interdisciplinary Program's activities. We seek applicants whose
area of empirical research lies in the history of Christianity in
America (United States). The ideal candidate will demonstrate a
combination of historical depth with an awareness of contemporary issues
in American public life. An ability to analyze religion alongside other
fields of difference, such as gender, race, and sexuality, is a plus.
The candidate should be prepared to teach Theory and Methods in the
Study of Religion (an introductory course on anthropological,
sociological, and phenomenological approaches to the study of religion),
as well as two other courses, the nature of which will in part depend
upon her/his qualifications.
Application deadline is February 15, 2013. To apply see the NYU Religious Studies Program web site at http://religiousstudies.as.nyu.edu and click on the "Employment"
link to submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a 20-page
writing sample, a sample syllabus, and the names of three referees.
