Instructor in Queer Studies

New York University Gallatin School of Individualized Study

United States


The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University seeks an adjunct instructor (part-time faculty) in Queer Studies for Academic Year 2021-2022. The successful applicant will teach one course per term on gender and sexuality emphasizing the lives and experiences of queer, trans, and non-binary people. The position is open to a range of disciplinary approaches, time periods, and geographies. We particularly welcome proposals for courses that examine the intersection of sex, gender, and race and focus on queer-of-color critique. We seek applications from scholars in humanities and humanistic social sciences in disciplines such as Queer studies, history, sociology, gender and sexuality studies, women’s studies, ethnic studies, American studies, and performance studies who reach across disciplinary boundaries in research and teaching. 

Founded in 1972, NYU Gallatin is a liberal arts college of 1,500 undergraduate students and 200 Masters students that is a part of New York University. Its innovative B.A. and M.A. programs in individualized study encourage students to develop an integrated, interdisciplinary program of study that combines courses taken in the various schools of NYU with independent studies, internships, and Gallatin’s own interdisciplinary seminars, writing courses and arts workshops. The School emphasizes excellent teaching, top level faculty research, intensive student advising and mentoring, and a unique combination of program flexibility and academic rigor.


Advanced doctoral candidate or Ph.D. in hand by time of appointment; demonstrated excellence in teaching at the college or university level; and a strong record of research and writing.
