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 over 15 research and study-away sites across five continents. Faculty and students will circulate within this global network in pursuit of common research interests and the promotion of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary solutions for problems, both local and global.
NYU Abu Dhabi is currently inviting applications for tenure track and contract appointments at any level (assistant, associate, or full professor) for its History Program. The applicants should offer a special area of research and teaching dealing with any historical period concerning Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian Ocean region, Southeast Asia, or the South Pacific. We are seeking historians with a transnational, global or cross-disciplinary approach, an active research and publishing agenda, and a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching. Please visit the History Program’s website for a description of its innovative curriculum: http://nyuad.nyu.edu/academics/catalog/majors.html?id=12&view+overview.
Entering its third year, NYU Abu Dhabi has recruited a cohort of faculty who are at once distinguished in their research and teaching. Our 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, 2013, or could be delayed until September 1, 2014.
Applications for all positions are due by November 1, although review of applications will begin on September 1; applications received later will be reviewed until the positions are filled. We will consider candidates on a rolling basis. To be considered, candidates should submit a Curriculum Vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, representative publications and three letters of reference, all in PDF format. Senior candidates are not required to submit references at this time.
