Global Academic Fellow
Writing NYU Shanghai
NEW YORK UNIVERSITY SHANGHAI IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE SEARCH FOR GLOBAL ACADEMIC FELLOWS SPECIALIZING IN WRITING. The NYU Shanghai Global Academic Fellowship enables individuals passionate about education and leadership to apply their talents to delivering academic support services and enrichment for the outstanding students at NYU Shanghai. NYU Shanghai is the third degree-granting
campus in NYU’s global network,
joining NYU in New York and NYU Abu Dhabi. It is a world-class, comprehensive liberal arts and sciences research university in the heart of Shanghai. With half of the student body drawn from China and half from over 30 other countries, The Global Academic Fellowship provides unique opportunities to explore teaching, work closely with faculty, serve an international population, gain administrative experience, and enhance a developing university community both as a leader and community member. The Global Academic Fellowship is a unique position designed for young professionals who have recently completed their academic study programs. Candidates for the Global Academic Fellowship (GAF) positions specializing in writing must have received high distinction during their college and early professional careers, and they must be gifted writers. Experience teaching writing is helpful, but not required. We also value evidence of initiative, judgment and skill working with people from many different cultures. During their fellowship, Writing GAFs will be vital resources for students in the Academic Resource Center, serving as English writing and speaking tutors. Every GAF also partners with a university department for his/her Institutional Enrichment Project (IEP). IEPs expose GAFs to various departments and their functions and develop leadership, project management, and collaborative-working skills, while providing GAFs with opportunities to enhance the NYU Shanghai community. GAFs will also have the opportunity to work on their own writing projects over the course of the academic year with mentorship from a member of the faculty. HIGHLIGHTS:
