New York University Department of Media, Culture, and Communication

United States


New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development invites applications for a non-tenure track Visiting Assistant Professor position in Media, Culture, and Communication to begin in September 2020. The appointed faculty member will be part of the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication. This is a one-year, non-tenure track appointment that is renewable for an additional two years, depending upon department need and satisfactory performance. We are committed to substantially increasing the proportion of our faculty from historically underrepresented groups as we strive to create the most intellectually diverse, inclusive, and equitable institution that we can, and especially encourage candidates from historically underrepresented groups to apply.

Position Description:  The Department of Media, Culture, and Communication serves over 900 undergraduate majors, a growing number of whom seek to integrate digital making into their studies of media as socio-cultural phenomena.  The ideal candidate is one with competence in one or more areas of digital making taught in the department’s existing practice-based curriculum (e.g. website development, digital imaging, audio and video production, and expressive coding) and an interest in developing and teaching courses on themes of platform society, big data, surveillance, and privacy.

Responsibilities: Steinhardt seeks a dynamic Visiting Assistant Professor who will teach three undergraduate courses each semester in addition to providing advisement of undergraduate theses.  The successful candidate will be engaged in the intellectual life of the department and may also facilitate new course design.


An earned doctorate or completed doctoral degree by September 2020 and strong record of teaching are required. 

Application Instructions

Please submit your application online including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, diversity statement (describing how you address diversity and inclusion in the scope of your teaching and broader work), and the names and contact information for three references to upload confidential letters.
