NYU Shanghai

New York University Shanghai is excited to announce the search for Global Postdoctoral Fellows for the 2013-14 Academic Year.

NYU Shanghai is the newest university within NYUs global network, providing a liberal education in the arts and sciences to an exceptionally talented group of students selected from around the world, half of whom will hold Chinese passports.

The Global Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at NYU Shanghai offers an exceptional opportunity for early-career scholars to join with NYU Shanghai Vice Chancellor Jeffrey Lehman in teaching the Global Perspectives on Society course for first-year undergraduates at NYU Shanghai.  

The course will be a year-long global intellectual history course devoted to examining ten central questions concerning life as a human being: gods and mortals; parents and children; women and men; the human body, health, and medicine; humans, other species, and the environment; sovereignty and law; strangers and strangers; property, labor, and economic exchange; races, ethnic communities, and nations; and war, collective violence, and international relations.  Each topic will be engaged through the close study of several texts that have been recognized as important over the course of history.  The texts will reflect contrasting perspectives of different individuals, cultures, and time periods.

Each Global Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for teaching one session each week to two different sections of approximately 15-25 students per week (TOFEL改错:这句英文有没有问题?.  The sessions will help to prepare students for the full-class sessions to be taught by Vice Chancellor Lehman, largely using the Socratic Method.  (The students will also have two sessions each week with writing instructors teaching writing materials directly associated with the course readings.)  

Global Postdoctoral Fellows will also participate in grading students performance in the course, serve as academic advisors to first-year students, participate in the less formal aspects of campus life, make public presentations of their own scholarly work during the course of the academic year, and carry out such other responsibilities as they may from time to time be called upon to fulfill.
