All EWP faculty are expected to participate in faculty development.
Successful applicants will be strong writers who have demonstrated excellence in college-level teaching. We encourage applicants from across the disciplines. Preferred qualifications include any combination of the following: 5 or more years’ experience teaching composition; 3 or more years’ experience working with multilingual students, including both international students and domestic speakers of heritage languages; TESOL certification or research on multilingual learners; experience teaching in a diverse, multilingual environment, and an interest in teaching writing at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
- PhD, MFA, or EdD (ABD considered, subject to successful completion of the PhD before the appointment begins);
- 3 years’ experience teaching composition and/or other writing-intensive courses.
We welcome applicants who can advise a range of students, including historically underrepresented students (students of color, LGBTQ+ students, students with disabilities, and first-generation college students). We encourage candidates to describe, in their cover letter, how they will aid NYU in its commitment to building and maintaining a diverse community of thinkers and writers.
The Faculty of Arts and Science at NYU is at the heart of a leading research university that spans the globe. We seek scholars of the highest caliber, who embody the diversity of the United States as well as the global society in which we live. We strongly encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are underrepresented in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender and sexual identity, or any other legally protected basis. NYU affirms the value of differing perspectives on the world as we strive to build the strongest possible university with the widest reach.
