The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health
Two Full Time Positions in Food Systems Associate Professor, Tenured/Tenure Track Assistant Professor, Tenure Track Application
Deadline Dec. 15th
NYU’s <http://steinhardt.nyu.edu/nutrition/ 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).
