The Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment invites applications for a Visiting Professor of Policy and Social Justice. This is a three-semester fixed-term appointment starting in January, 2019 and continuing through the 2019-2020 full academic year. The position is based in the Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment, a unit of the New School.

Rank is open, and applications from both highly accomplished practitioners, as well as senior faculty, are invited.

The ideal candidate’s research or practice would focus on the causes, consequences, politics, and remedies of racial and ethnic inequality, including intersectional approaches. While a range of policy specialties will be considered, a research and publications record focused on social stratification by race, gender and/or some other identity perspective is preferred. The successful candidate will also have experience and be interested in working with students in the Milano School’s vibrant doctoral program.

In Spring 2019, the teaching and advising load will be determined in consultation with the Milano School Dean. In academic year 2019-2020, the teaching expectation will be the equivalent of five courses spanning the academic year, both required core courses for the master’s in Public and Urban Policy and at least one elective in the area of racial and economic inequality.

Minimum Qualifications: For senior faculty applicants, a terminal degree is expected; for practitioners, an advanced degree related to relevant practice is preferred. Teaching experience is highly desired as is experience mentoring/advising graduate students. The capacity to work well with people of diverse cultural backgrounds and levels of professional experience is expected.
