Clinical Assistant Professor, Director of Field Office and
Co-Director of Residency Programs, Non-Tenure Track
New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development invites applications for a non-tenure track Clinical Assistant Professor, Director of Field Office and Co-Director of Residency Programs to begin in summer 2020. The appointed faculty member will be part of the Department of Teaching and Learning. We are committed to substantially increasing the proportion of our faculty from historically underrepresented groups as we strive to create the most intellectually diverse, inclusive, and equitable institution that we can, and especially encourage candidates from historically underrepresented groups to apply.
Position Description: The successful candidate will serve as the Co-Director of the NYU Teacher Residencies (NYU TR). The NYU TR (secondary and elementary) are year-long learning experiences built in conjunction with partner districts and charter networks using technology-enhanced course modules leading to NY State certification. Collectively with the Director of Teacher Education, the Co-Director of the NYU TR will spearhead Steinhardt’s efforts to influence federal, state, district and school-based educational leaders around the power of residencies and innovative teacher education models. Additionally, the successful candidate will serve as the Director of the Field office, which places and supports several hundred undergraduate and graduate-level emerging teachers each year, often in underserved communities. Through collaboration, the successful candidate will work closely with teacher education colleagues in the Department of Teaching and Learning, throughout the larger NYU/Steinhardt community, and across New York City schools and Department of Education.
Responsibilities: Steinhardt seeks a dynamic candidate to engage in teaching and administration, with an opportunity for applied research. The successful candidate will teach courses in the elementary- and secondary-level Masters of Arts Teacher Residencies and drive efforts to identify strong school partnerships and placements for all teacher education programs with a focus on underserved communities. Responsibilities include providing day-to-day administrative management for the NYU TR as well as providing structural and intellectual leadership and oversight to the Department of Teaching and Learning’s Field Office, the regional team of Field Mentors, and the national team of NYU TR Residency Directors. This also includes managing staff, supporting continued professional development for all teams, and setting a program vision centered on equity, diversity, and innovation. The successful candidate will participate in applied research and present findings and key learnings from the residency programs in internal and external fora, including national conferences related to teacher education. In addition, the candidate will participate in faculty meetings and serve on department, school and/or university committees.
Qualifications: An earned doctorate in teacher education or a closely-related field, a strong record of leadership in educational administration, and a minimum of 5 years experience in K-12 settings with additional experience in higher education are required. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated ability to teach courses to undergraduate and graduate students in elementary and secondary teacher education programs. Demonstrated experience in technology-enhanced teaching and curriculum design required. Evidence of the ability to engage with multiple stakeholders including partner schools, districts, networks, and community-based organizations is also required.
Applications: Please apply online with a letter of application, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, diversity statement (describing how you address diversity and inclusion in the scope of your teaching, and broader work), and the names and contact information for three referees who will be automatically contacted by Interfolio on your behalf to upload confidential letters. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
