New York University Shanghai

Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract

NYU Shanghai invites applications for Teaching Fellows for Global Perspectives on Society for the 2023-24 academic year. This residential fellowship for the entire academic year 2023-24 entails one semester of teaching responsibilities, followed by one semester dedicated to the fellow’s own scholarly work. NYU Shanghai seeks to appoint a team of Teaching Fellows that will further diversify NYU Shanghai’s instructional faculty.

Global Perspectives on Society (GPS) is a required course that forms the foundation of the humanities and social science core curriculum for first-year undergraduates at NYU Shanghai. GPS is a fall semester course devoted to examining central questions about the individual in society through the study of key concepts and texts, as well as developing the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills central to a liberal arts education.  The course introduces students to a range of intellectual and critical traditions concerning the foundations of society and the analytical categories used to describe, understand, and critique society.

Lectures for GPS are delivered by core faculty members at NYU Shanghai. Teaching Fellows are responsible for leading two recitation sections per week during the fall semester. Each section contains approximately 18 students; half the students in each section will be Chinese nationals, and half will be international students. During fall semester, course-related responsibilities include the following:

  • helping students understand the texts and concepts covered in the course;
  • designing weekly lessons, in-class activities, and teaching strategies based on the readings to maximize discussion and participation in the recitation sections;
  • grading paper assignments and examinations;
  • assessing overall student progress and the course learning outcomes;
  • assisting occasionally in the lectures as facilitators for specific in-class activities;
  • holding office hours for student consultations;
  • participating in weekly meetings to discuss administrative and/or pedagogical matters related to the course;
  • normalizing grade expectations with the course instructors and other Teaching Fellows.

In addition, Teaching Fellows are expected to engage with the larger intellectual life of NYU Shanghai by presenting their scholarly work at various possible venues in the university, participating in or possibly organizing academic events of interest to the university community, or otherwise contributing to the intellectual mission of the university. The teaching responsibilities of the fellowship are in the fall semester; the spring semester is devoted to the fellow’s self-directed research and writing. Teaching Fellows are expected to remain in residence for the full academic year, but will have a research fund for travel to conferences or research sites.

The appointment is expected to begin in August 2023, with the possibility of a one-year renewal. Terms of employment at NYU Shanghai are comparable to NYU New York and other U.S. institutions.
