New York, USA 

The Department of Environmental Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Science at New York University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Animal Studies at the rank of Assistant Professor. We encourage applications from scholars whose research specializes in any dimension of Animal Studies, a multidisciplinary field that examines what nonhuman animals are like, how human and nonhuman animals relate to each other, and the significance of these relations across several dimensions. Research areas include but are not limited to animal minds, animal ethics, animal law, compassionate conservation, the relationship between animals and climate change, and the representation of animals in the media. The successful applicant will have a strong record of research and publishing. They will be committed to educating students in programs hosted by the Environmental Studies department, including the Animal Studies masters (MA) and undergraduate minor programs, the Environmental Studies undergraduate program, and/or the anticipated Environmental Studies PhD program (expected to launch in Fall 2024, and to include students in the field of Animal Studies). They will be committed to helping administer our Animal Studies programs. Finally, they will be excited to work within a department that emphasizes and encourages transdisciplinary scholarship and systems thinking, and with a faculty whose work spans the natural and social sciences and the humanities. The appointment will begin September 1, 2024, pending administrative and budgetary approval.
