Pour tous renseignement

New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development invites applications for a tenure­-track Assistant Professor in East and Southeast Asian Media to begin in September 2017. The appointed faculty member will be part of the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication.

NYU Steinhardt has one­-of­-a-­kind integration of education, communication, health, and the arts, with eleven departments, seventeen research centers and institutes, 292 full­-time faculty, and close to six thousand students. 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. The Department of Media, Culture, and Communication (MCC) is at the forefront of scholarship and teaching in media studies, attuned to the scale, scope, pace, and power of mediated communication. Our research and curriculum emphasize the study of global media and culture, digital media and new technologies, media history, visual culture, sound studies, media industries and infrastructures, social interaction, media activism, and political communication.


The successful candidate will extend existing strengths within the department, specializing in new media technologies within East and/or Southeast Asian contexts. We are seeking a research scholar whose methods are attentive to media as socio­cultural phenomena and who can contribute broadly to our curriculum at graduate and undergraduate levels.


Conduct research; teach and advise undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students; participate in faculty meetings, serve on committees, and provide other service to the University.

NYU’s dynamic Global Network University includes NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, and international programs and academic centers around the world. NYU Steinhardt faculty may have the opportunity to engage in research and teaching at these global study and research sites.


Doctoral degree and an active agenda of research, publication, and teaching, with the potential for service to the department, School, and University as well as a demonstrated commitment to excellence in scholarship and teaching is required.
