Assistant Professor

Pratt Institute, School of Information

Application Deadline: November 01, 2023.

Pratt Institute invites applications for a cluster of five new tenure-track faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor, focused on “Diverse Voices Creating Just Futures.” We seek applicants from a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary backgrounds whose teaching and research / creative practices will advance the Institute’s commitment to an education that centers on justice:

Pratt students make decisions with consideration of their impact upon individuals, communities, and the earth. They are compelled into action to resist all forms of discrimination, inequalities, and supremacism, in order to promote just societal transformation with frameworks and tools that allow for reflection and agency” (All-Institute Learning Goals).

The faculty hired through this initiative will have the opportunity to work as a multi-disciplinary cohort with shared interests that cut across fields, as well as pursue their work as individual scholars and creative practitioners.

With this initiative, Pratt further elevates its commitment to increasing the size of its full-time faculty; to recruiting, hiring and supporting diverse faculty; and to educating artists and creative professionals whose work has a transformative impact on the world. A top-ranked college with opportunities in art, design, architecture, liberal arts and sciences, and information studies, Pratt Institute provides the creative leaders of tomorrow the knowledge and experience to make a better world.
