Postdoctoral Lecturer in French Studies

New York University Institute of French Studies

United States

Description

The Institute of French Studies (IFS) invites applications for a post-doctoral lecturer position for academic year 2021-22. We are seeking to hire a recent NYU graduate with a strong record of research and teaching, relevant professional experience, familiarity with the IFS curriculum and student body, and a commitment to questions of equity and diversity. The post-doctoral lecturer will be responsible for teaching graduate courses as well as handling a range of advisory and administrative duties.

The position will begin on August 1, 2020, and end on May 31, 2022, pending administrative and budgetary approval. Total compensation will be $40,000 (subject to taxation).

Qualifications

Candidates must have defended their dissertation between 2018 and 2021.

If the selected candidate will graduate in Summer 2021, the IFS must receive by July 31 a signed Doctoral Thesis Reader Sheet from the primary adviser approving the dissertation for defense. The dissertation must be successfully defended and deposited to the Graduate School on or before September 10, 2021 in time for the graduation deadlines. Failure to meet any of these deadlines will result in a failure to meet criteria for employment in a post-doctoral capacity in the IFS.

Application Instructions

Applications should include (1) a statement detailing the candidate’s qualifications and explaining how diversity has figured in their academic activities; (2) one-page descriptions of two graduate courses the applicant might teach, including key texts to be assigned; and (3) a curriculum vitae.
