Posner, who has served as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor since early on in the Obama administration, will begin teaching in the fall semester and will help establish a center for business and human rights at NYU Stern, the school announced.

Posner’s principal deputy, Uzra Zeya, will fill in until a successor is named, a State Department spokesman said.

Other recent high-profile departures from State have included deputy Secretary of State  Tom Nides  and Jake Sullivan, deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
