New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions. These lines are the first of six new hires that will take place over the next three years relating to a new intellectual hub - Creating a Just Society: Equity and Belonging. Successful applicants will help to build a hub of interdisciplinary scholars from diverse backgrounds to investigate and teach how: a) historical, ideological, and structural inequities impact educational and service organizations that serve children and youth; b) these disproportionate effects impact learning, development, wellbeing, access to resources, and life opportunities for Black, Latinx, Indigenous, migrant and other marginalized youth, families, and communities; c) these inequities, in turn, shape youth identity and sense of belonging; and d) these negative trajectories can be disrupted by theorizing, developing and testing ethical and equitable interventions and policy solutions. We seek applicants whose research and teaching explores these issues, and whose mentorship and service reflects a commitment to equity, belonging, and justice.
