New York University Abu Dhabi is inviting applications from political scientists for faculty positions at any level (assistant, associate or full professor, tenure/tenure track) to strengthen its program in Political Science, for appointment on September 1, 2016. We encourage applications from all subfields of Political Science, with a particular interest in applicants in International Relations. You may visit the Political Science program’s website for a description of its innovative curriculum:

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, complimented by a network of eleven research and study-away sites across five continents: Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Sydney, Tel Aviv, and Washington. Our students are drawn from around the world and surpass all traditional recruitment benchmarks, both US and global. 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.

Entering its sixth year, NYU Abu Dhabi has recruited a cohort of faculty who are distinguished in their research and teaching. 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 institute will invest significant funds in creating a hub for research related to social, economic, and political development in the broader region; applications from candidates with an ambition to contribute to this agenda are especially welcome.

The excellent terms of employment are competitive and include generous start-up and on-going research funds, as well as housing subsidies and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend an occasional semester at NYU New York and other sites of the global network, engaging in both research and teaching opportunities.

Applications are due no later than September 15, 2015. Campus visits to NYUAD will be held November 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 with the visits to NYUNY occurring in the succeeding four weeks. The review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the positions are filled. To ensure full consideration by the search committee, applicants must submit their curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and representative writing samples. To complete the online process, applicants will be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees.  Each referee will be contacted to upload their reference letter.  Senior candidates are not required to submit references at this time. Please visit our website at for instructions and information on how to apply. If you have any questions, please e-mail Professor Ronald Rogowski and other members of the search committee will be attending the APSA meetings in San Francisco and will be happy to meet with candidates there.
