NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for a tenured/tenure-track position at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor in Art History. We are especially interested in candidates who have completed a Ph.D. in the History of Architecture and/or Urbanism of East Asia, with a particular interest in scholars focusing on China. Candidates who have completed a Ph.D. in Architecture focusing on East Asian history would also be considered. Chronological focus of research may be premodern or modern, but an ability to teach outside the immediate period of expertise is preferred.
Applicants should have earned their Ph.D. by November 2019.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, and electronic copies of at least one publication/writing sample. Applicants are asked to include the names of three referees with their application.
Terms of employment at NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions with respect to research start-up funds and compensation, and they include housing subsidies and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites of the NYU Global Network, engaging in both research and teaching.
