The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University (NYU) seeks to fill a Visiting Assistant Professor of Economic Thought position to commence on September 1, 2019. This position is a one-year appointment, renewable for a second year. We are seeking candidates with expertise in either the History of Economic Thought; Heterodox Economics; or the History of Capitalism. The ideal candidate will be able to teach creative and thoughtful courses that explore the intellectual history of economics as a discipline, or that provide a social and institutional framework for thinking about the history of capitalism. We are particularly interested in attracting a candidate who could teach some courses about the likes of any of the following:  Adam Smith, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, Alfred Marshall, Joan Robinson, Amartya Sen and/or other scholars who have been influential in the development of economic thought, and who can teach in a way that exposes undergraduate students to the texts of these thinkers. The candidate would be welcome to teach other topics-oriented courses in addition to the above; examples might include courses such as a course about the history of money, a gender and the economy course, or a course drawn from the candidate's research. The teaching load for this position is four courses per year (typically, two in the fall and two in the spring). In addition, this position serves as an adviser for approximately 13 students.


Founded in 1972, NYU Gallatin is a liberal arts college of 1,500 undergraduate students and 200 graduate students that are part of New York University. Its innovative B.A. and M.A. programs in individualized study encourage students to develop an integrated, interdisciplinary program of study that combines courses taken in the various schools of NYU with independent studies, internships, and Gallatin’s own interdisciplinary seminars, writing courses and arts workshops. The School emphasizes excellent teaching, top level faculty research, intensive student advising and mentoring, and a unique combination of program flexibility and academic rigor.
