Two Full Time Positions in Food Systems Associate Professor, Tenured/Tenure Track Assistant Professor, Tenure Track Application

Deadline Dec. 15th

NYU’s < Department of Nutrition,  Food Studies, and Public Health is seeking candidates for two  tenure-track positions in food systems:  one at the assistant professor  level and one at the associate professor level.  Both positions begin September 2012.

The NYU Food Studies program takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying food production and consumption, particularly in urban settings.  The program examines the complexities of supplying the city, including food distribution and transportation, water and waste  management, and the rural-urban interface.  Policy and health issues  are also germane to topics on urban food systems.

Qualifications:  Doctorate in related field, teaching experience,  record of research.  We will consider candidates with a range of  research interests, which may include: environmental studies; urban  studies or planning; waste and water management; agricultural policy  and urban markets; political or cultural geography; agroecology;  science studies; landscape design with a focus on the northeast.

Responsibilities:  We are seeking candidates who can contribute to the  NYU food studies program, particularly courses in the masters’ program focused on food systems.  The candidate will be expected to be  an active, accomplished teacher and to engage in the intellectual life  of the program and the department.

NYU’s dynamic Global Network University includes NYU Abu Dhabi and  international programs and academic centers around the world. NYU  Steinhardt faculty may be afforded the opportunity for variable term  work at these global study and research sites.

NYU is committed to building a culturally diverse educational  environment and strongly encourages applications from historically  underrepresented groups.

Please apply online with a cover letter explaining research interests  and teaching experience; a list of three references and their email  addresses (letters are not required at this time), CV, related  syllabi/course outlines, publications (as appropriate).
