NYU and the Center for the Humanities recognize the value of a diverse community in supporting an intellectually challenging and inclusive environment. To this end, the University actively recruits, supports
and trains scholars and students from a diverse range of backgrounds. With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation the Center seeks to appoint one Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow for a NYU fellowship to diversify the field of scholars in the next generation.
