NYU Abu Dhabi

New York University Abu Dhabi seeks to appoint two leading scholars at
the level of associate or full professor in the fields of Shakespeare
Studies (especially Global Shakespeare) and World Literature, with
preference for scholars working in the field of Arabic Literature. The
successful candidate will have the opportunity to play an integral role
in fashioning an international research university oriented around the
liberal arts. We are looking for a literary scholar who maintains an
active agenda of research, has substantial publications, and has
demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching. Experienced junior
scholars with substantial records of publication may also be considered.
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, the promotion of
cross-cultural understanding and solutions for problems, both local and
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.
Applications for tenure-track positions are due by February 1;
applications received later will be reviewed until the positions are
filled. To be considered, candidates should submit a cover letter,
Curriculum Vitae, statements of research and teaching, all in PDF
format. Junior candidates are asked to submit sample publications and
three letters of reference as well. Please visit our website at
