2022-2023 Call for
NYUAD Research Institute / Humanities Research
Fellowships for the Study of the Arab World
The NYU Abu Dhabi Research Institute invites scholars who wish
to contribute to the vibrant research culture of NYUAD’s Saadiyat
campus to apply for a residential fellowship, starting September
The Institute welcomes applications from scholars working in all
areas of the Humanities related to the study of the Arab world, its
rich literature and history, its cultural and artistic heritage,
and its manifold connections with other cultures. This includes,
among others, Islamic Intellectual History and Culture, any areas
of particular relevance to the MENA region, as well as projects
thematically connected to existing research projects and
initiatives at NYUAD’s divisions of Arts & Humanities and
Social Sciences (see https://nyuad.nyu.edu/en/research.html).
Both distinguished scholars with an established reputation and
promising scholars who are at the beginning of their career can
apply for a research fellowship. The program awards one-year senior
fellowships and one- / two-year postdoctoral fellowships.
Each fellow receives a competitive stipend commensurate with
experience, housing or housing allowance, health insurance,
work/office space on campus, full access to NYUAD’s library
facilities (with close connections to NYU’s main library in New
York), research allowance, an opportunity to host a small workshop
funded by the Research Institute, and support for travel to and
from Abu Dhabi.
We expect successful candidates to commence their appointment on
September 1, 2022, pending final approval.
The fellowship program is hosted by the NYU Abu Dhabi Research
Institute. For more information, please visit:
