NYU Faculty Fellowship in Latin American and Caribbean Studies

The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at New York University invites applications for a Faculty Fellow to begin in September 2016, pending administrative and budgetary approval.

CLACS is a Title VI National Resource Center (jointly with Columbia University’s Institute for Latin American Studies). We are looking for an outstanding scholar of Latin American and/or the Caribbean Studies with demonstrable commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship and excellence in teaching. Discipline and regional specialization are open; a focus on indigenous studies is particularly welcome.

Responsibilities include teaching three courses per year in the CLACS MA program (including the core course on the colonial period), mentoring students, supervising MA theses, and participating in faculty colloquia. PhD must be in hand by time of appointment and must have been completed no earlier than September 2011. The position is renewable annually for a maximum of three years.

CLACS encourages applications from minority or international candidates.
