STEM faculty job opening at The New School


Assistant/Associate Professor in the Natural Sciences. Eugene Lang College for Liberal Arts, an undergraduate college of The New School, invites applications for a full-time renewable term appointment in the Department of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. We seek innovative educators at the senior or junior level who can contribute to a distinctive Interdisciplinary Science Program that teaches basic scientific principles, concepts, and methods within the context of solving planetary health challenges. The program prepares students for advanced interdisciplinary study and careers in public health/epidemiology, environmental policy/natural conservation, transdisciplinary design, data visualization, and STEM communication. Candidates will be expected to maintain a research or creative practice appropriate to a liberal arts context (which can include the scholarship of teaching and learning and/or science communication) and are encouraged to develop collaborations within and outside the University. We are particularly interested in those who make connections to design, social sciences, and/or the arts, and those who have experience with informal science learning (DIY, science cafe, museums, film, STEAMD) or using cities as learning labs. Preference will be given to those candidates who have familiarity with SENCER  (Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities) or similar programs that place STEM, social justice, and civic engagement at the center of learning. The New School campus has two teaching laboratories (BSL2) and an extensive Making Center, which can be used to support research. The start date is July 2018. For full ad and application protocol see
