Faculty Job

Religious Studies Program
New York University

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 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.

NYU is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
