Tenured or Tenure-Track Position

Department of Comparative Literature

New York University Arts and Science

The Department of Comparative
Literature at NYU seeks applications for a tenured or
tenure-track position specializing in either South
Asian/subcontinent or West Asian (can include Ottoman, Turkish,
Persian, Arabic) literature and theory. The rank is open but
preference will be given to mid-career or senior faculty. We are
especially interested in candidates with a comparative and
theoretical approach who can teach and advise students across
periods, as well as in critical fields understood
transcontinentally. Demonstrated excellence in devising innovative
syllabi for courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels and
the ability to contribute to the department's Certificate in
Comparative Approaches to the Literatures of Africa, the Middle
East and the Global South (CALAMEGS), are a priority, as is a
history of departmental engagement and service.

Application materials are due November 5th and must include a cover
letter, a complete CV, and two sample syllabi. Entry-level
applicants should provide three letters of reference. Because
diversity and inclusion are an important part of the NYU mission,
we request that you include a paragraph in your cover letter
telling us how diversity and inclusion figure into your past,
present, and future teaching, research, and community engagement
(additional information can be found here

Review of complete applications will begin November 15th. The
anticipated start date is September 1, 2020, pending budgetary and
administrative approval. Please submit applications through the
following link apply.interfolio.com/68672.

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 under-represented 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. To learn more about the FAS commitment to diversity,
