NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for a position at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor in Environmental Studies. We seek candidates who have completed a Ph.D. in geography, sociology, anthropology, political science, or a related social science field, and whose work demonstrates a capacity for excellence in interdisciplinary environmental research and high-quality classroom instruction. We are especially but not exclusively interested in scholars whose research adopts a global perspective on disasters, urban ecology, or energy and climate change.

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.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research, statement of teaching, and electronic copies of up to five relevant publications. To complete the online process, junior applicants will be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Each referee will be contacted and asked to upload their reference letter. In the case of senior applicants, reference letters will be requested at a later stage as needed.

Review of applications will begin October 16th and will continue until the position is filled.
