Religious Studies Program
Arts and Science

The Religious Studies Program in the Faculty of Arts and Science at New York University invites applications for an appointment as a Faculty Fellow. The appointment will be for one year beginning September 1, 2018, renewable annually for a maximum of three 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 African-American Religious life in the 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 Theories 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, 2018. To learn more about the Religious Studies Program, please visit our web site at religiousstudies.as.nyu.edu. Please submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a 20-page writing sample, a sample syllabus, and the names of 3 referees. To apply, please go to apply.interfolio.com/46695.
