Two Assistant Professor Positions in Creating a Just Society: Equity and Belonging
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 research hub of interdisciplinary scholars from diverse backgrounds to understand how:
  • historical, ideological, and structural inequities impact educational and service organizations that serve children and youth;
  • these disproportionate effects impact learning, development, well-being, access to resources, and life opportunities for Black, Latinx, Indigenous, migrant and other marginalized youth, families, and communities;
  • these inequities, in turn, shape youth identity and sense of belonging; and
  • these negative trajectories can be disrupted by theorizing, developing and testing ethical and equitable interventions and policy solutions.

Steinhardt is committed to the success and well-being of hub scholars. The School aims to provide comprehensive resources to support junior faculty conducting critical research. At the same time, we understand the need to remain nimble and responsive to the needs of diverse junior faculty

To this end, we have established and continue to develop a range of supports within home departments and across the school and university. These include, but are not limited to, course reductions in the first three years, dedicated resources for scholarly engagement, writing support, and professional development activities, as well as robust mentorship programs to nurture the continuing growth of hub scholars For the latter, a mentor from within the home department as well as an external mentor will work with each hub scholar, to promote a diversity of perspectives. Mentors will be chosen by hub scholars, in collaboration with senior faculty.

Simultaneously, the school is committed to continued institutional development to ensure a safe and productive space for diverse junior faculty. A network of Steinhardt research centers will serve as an additional intellectual and scholarly node for these junior scholars.

The Institute of Human Development and Social Change (IHDSC) offers seed grants for junior faculty, intensive grants management support and working groups that support scholars’ professional development, create intellectual community, and foster interdisciplinary collaboration. The NYU Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools (Metro Center) promotes engagement with community partners in the local education and human service arenas. The Center for Practice and Research at the Intersection of Information, Society, and Methodology (PRIISM) gathers a community of methodologists and social scientists with expertise in data and society, as well as evaluation research methods.
