NYU Abu Dhabi is currently inviting applications for a faculty position at any level (assistant, associate, or full professor) for appointment to its History Program. The applicants should offer a special area of research and teaching dealing with the Indian Ocean region and/or Africa and the Gulf region, in which a transnational, comparative or global approach is part of the methodology. The search will remain open until an appointment is made, but review of applications will begin December 1, 2011.
New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, a multi-site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three foundational, degree-granting campuses: New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, complemented by a network of more than 15 research and study-away sites across five continents. Faculty and students will circulate within this global network in pursuit of common research interests, the promotion of cross-cultural understanding and solutions for problems, both local and global.
Entering its second year, NYU Abu Dhabi has already recruited a cohort of faculty who are at once distinguished in their research and teaching. Our first two classes of students are drawn from around the world and surpass all traditional recruitment benchmarks, both US and global. NYU Abu Dhabi’s highly selective liberal arts enterprise is complemented by an institute for advanced research, sponsoring cutting-edge projects across the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and Engineering.
The terms of employment are competitive and include housing and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites of the global network, engaging in both research and teaching opportunities. The appointment might begin as soon as September 1, 2012, or could be delayed until September 1, 2013.
The review of applications will begin on December 1, 2011. Applicants need to submit a curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, representative publications and three letters of reference in PDF format to be considered.
