The Gallatin School of Individualized Study NEW YORK UNIVERSITY

The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University invites applications from scholars in the fields of Business and Economics broadly understood for the position of tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor. The ideal candidate will be a scholar who approaches business and economics from a social scientific perspective (e.g. PhD in sociology, political science, economics, anthropology or a scholar of business who engages the social science literature), whose research and teaching would address the needs of students interested in business, economics, and development, and enable them to understand the functions of different economic systems and their institutionalization. Important topics or subjects that this scholar might work on include, for example, the social and political function of debt; the creation and impact of different financial systems on social structures; deficits and deficit spending; markets as social structures (e.g., financial, capital, wage labor, informal economies, ethnic economies); grounded analyses of economic theory (e.g. behavioral economics, theories of entrepreneurship; how financial systems and instruments are created and their effects; and cultures of business).

The ideal candidate will have experience and a strong interest in interdisciplinary teaching and in advising individualized B.A. and M.A. research programs. Possible affiliations in other schools of NYU may allow the candidate to work with doctoral students in the relevant discipline.

Qualifications: Demonstrated excellence in teaching at the university level. Ph.D. required.
