Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) Manhattan, a partnership of Bard College and the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE), invites applications for a full-time faculty position in the Department of Social Studies beginning Fall 2024. BHSEC, a national model in the field of public school reform, enables talented and highly motivated students to move in four years from the ninth grade through the first two years of college, earning an associate of arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College as well as a high school diploma. The academic program emphasizes small class size, seminar-style discussion and a commitment to teaching a diverse student body in a liberal arts environment.

The Department of Social Studies seeks to expand its college electives in Social Studies, especially in the fields of Philosophy, Religion, or Economics. Applicants with expertise in the histories, ideas, and cultures of Africa, East Asia or the Middle East from the early modern period onwards are encouraged to apply as well. The successful candidate will offer college electives and seminars in their field of expertise and collaborate as part of the team teaching our 10th grade Global Studies course. In addition, candidates will be expected to participate fully in the life of the school.

Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience–evidence of teaching to different learning styles is a plus–and to those whose training and research are interdisciplinary and cross-cultural. A Ph.D. is preferred; qualified candidates with a master’s degree who have exceptional teaching credentials will be considered as well; otherwise, assistance in securing certification will be provided to the successful candidate.

The position offers the opportunity to work in a school that is an innovative model in secondary and post-secondary education as a member of a dedicated faculty, most of whom hold doctorates in their fields. Salary is competitive, commensurate with experience.
