The Division of Science at NYU Abu Dhabi is searching for accomplished visiting faculty in Computer Science to educate the next generation of global thinkers. Multidisciplinary research and exceptional teaching in a highly diverse and inclusive campus community are hallmarks of the University’s mission.
NYUAD values diversity, inclusion, belonging, and equity; such principles are fundamental to the university's commitment to excellence. Our faculty are the engines that sustain our inclusive environment; NYUAD students come from more than 115 countries, with no single one nationality exceeding more than 15 percent of the total student population. Likewise, our faculty are highly diverse and community-minded: our modern campus is home to over 320 faculty who represent more than 45 different nationalities, all of whom bring a global perspective to their classrooms and research projects. Research is advanced by over 400 highly qualified research staff, who are likewise drawn from all over the world.
Applicants should have a relevant PhD and demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage in both research and teaching. The visiting position is for one academic year and the expected teaching load is four courses with relatively small class sizes.
Successful candidates may receive some research funding for conference travel and/or minor equipment, and will also have access to internal competitive funds. Additional research support includes access to high-performance computing facilities.
There are many collaboration opportunities within NYUAD, which already houses a number of interdisciplinary research centers, including the Center for Cyber Security, the Center for Interacting Urban Networks (CITIES), Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR), Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, Center for Quantum and Topological Systems, as well as with faculty in NYU New York’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Tandon School of Engineering.
