The Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position with appointment to begin September 1, 2019. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise and a record of research in political science with application to the environment. Successful candidates will teach in our Master of Public Administration program and will have demonstrated excellence in research.
NYU Wagner is a multidisciplinary school that prepares public service leaders to translate ideas into actions that have an effective and lasting impact on the public good. Wagner’s nearly 40 full-time faculty members are trained in a wide variety of disciplines and share a commitment to addressing issues of public importance in their teaching and research. Wagner faculty members collaborate with other schools and departments across the university, including the Departments of Politics, Economics, and Sociology in Arts & Science; School of Law; Stern School of Business; Tandon School of Engineering; and the College of Global Public Health.
A Ph.D. in political science, public policy, economics, public administration, or a related field is required and must be conferred by August 31, 2019.
Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, two completed research papers, and three letters of reference. Because diversity is an important part of the mission at Wagner and the University, candidates should also describe how they would address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in their teaching.
Application review will begin on October 28, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled. Early applications are encouraged.
