The Division of Social Science at New York University (NYU) Abu Dhabi is searching for visiting faculty to educate the next generation of global leaders.

You are invited to apply for a visiting faculty position in a new undergraduate program, a B.A. in Business, Organizations and Society. The program is interdisciplinary and focuses on the role and impact of business within society. Established on principles of the liberal arts, the program integrates business theory and application, and prepares students to take on roles in businesses and effectively and holistically examine the implications of business decisions for society from multiple perspectives (i.e., social, political, economic, and cultural). 

The program seeks applicants whose research and teaching are rooted in Management, Entrepreneurship, Business Analytics, Social Impact, or a related area. Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage, in both research and teaching. There are many collaboration opportunities within NYUAD, which already houses a number of interdisciplinary research centers and labs, including the Center for Behavioral Institutional Design (C-BID), Center for Interacting Urban Networks (CITIES), and Social Science Experimental Lab (SSEL).

The visiting position is typically for one academic year and the expected teaching load is four courses. The classes are relatively small and typically have at most 24 students. Candidates are expected to be excellent teachers of undergraduate courses. While the following list is not inclusive, anticipated courses/subject areas include: Corporate Social Responsibility, Social Ventures; Leading for Social Impact; Business Law, Diversity and Inclusion in Organizations; Design thinking; Managerial Negotiations; Strategy; Operations Management; Business Analytics; Finance; Management and Organization; Business and Technology; Business Ethics; and Entrepreneurship.

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; our over 320 faculty members represent more than 45 different nationalities, and bring a global perspective to their classrooms and research projects. NYUAD is committed to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity (IDBE), which is fundamental to the university commitment to excellence.
