The New School seeks to make a tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Anthropology of the New School for Social Research to begin Fall 2016. The ideal candidate will complement the department’s emphasis on interdisciplinarity, conceptually rigorous and ethnographically grounded scholarship, and innovative pedagogy.

Geographic area and subject specializations are open. We are looking for applicants with a research focus on urban social ecologies: this includes work on infrastructures, digital technologies and networks, zones of reconstruction or occupation, the politics of mobility and sustainability. We encourage applicants whose scholarly work and intellectual practice reach across theoretical and disciplinary divides and in particular we are looking for applicants motivated to play a role in developing and teaching in a new graduate program in design and anthropology being developed in conjunction with the school of design (Parsons).

The New School is committed to maintaining a diverse educational and creative community, a policy of equal opportunity in all its activities and programs, including employment. The University is engaged in a diversity initiative and we encourage individuals from groups underrepresented in U.S. higher education to apply. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran or marital status.
