Position description

The Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies at The New School for Social Research invites applications for its Visiting Faculty Fellowship, to be held for one or both semesters of the 2021-2022 academic year. Rank is open, but we seek a scholar who will contribute significantly to the flourishing activities of the Center.

Candidates must hold a PhD - conferred no later than 2018 - in a humanities or social science discipline.

Capitalism Studies in an emerging area of interdisciplinary teaching and research that engages critically with contemporary economic arrangements through diverse inquiries into the many forms of capitalism.

We encourage applications from scholars working on the following themes: financialization and fintech, gender and social reproduction, post-capitalism, racial capitalism, political economy and policy, emergent infrastructures of capitalism, precarity and informality, ecology and capitalism, global perspectives on inequality, dispossession and empire, and contemporary or historical perspectives on global configurations of labor, trade, and finance.

The responsibilities of the position include residence, teaching one graduate level course, organizing the work-in-progress series and annual symposium for graduate student fellows, participating in the faculty fellows' work-in-progress group, and, in general, contributing to the life of the Center. Title, salary, and benefits will be commensurate with rank and experience. The fellow will be required to be in residence on campus in New York City for the 2021-2022 academic year, contingent on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and university policies as well as those of New York State and New York City. Recognizing that the situation remains fluid, accommodations may be made consistent with relevant university policy for a remote appointment if necessitated by the global pandemic.

We invite applicants to explore other centers and initiatives at the New School that might relate to their research and teaching, including: the Sawyer Seminar on Currency and Empire: Monetary Policy, Race, and Power; The Institute for Race and Inequality; The Institute for Power, Politics, and Organizing; The Gender and Sexualities Institute; The Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis; The Zolberg Institute for Migration and Mobility

The New School is committed to actively recruiting from a diverse pool of applicants. We encourage candidates from groups underrepresented in US higher education to apply.
