Posted by on Aug 27, 2012 in Job Board | No Comments

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, and the promotion of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary solutions for problems, both local and global.

NYU Abu Dhabi seeks to make tenured, tenure-track or contract appointments of two faculty members for its Film & New Media Program: (1) a proven scholar in Cinema Studies with expertise in any field of film history, theory and criticism, preference for associate or full-professor level, junior scholars may apply; (2) an open-rank search for a dynamic professor of Animation. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to play an integral role in fashioning a complete international research university oriented around the liberal arts. We are looking for scholars and artists who maintain an active agenda of research or artistic activity, have publications or artistic accomplishments appropriate to their rank, and have demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching. Interest or affiliation with the region is welcome. Please visit the Film & New Media Program’s website for a description of its innovative curriculum: http://nyuad.nyu.edu/academics/undergraduate-programs/majors/film-and-new-media.html

Entering its third year, NYU Abu Dhabi has recruited a cohort of faculty who are at once distinguished in their research and teaching.  Our 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, 2013, or could be delayed until September 1, 2014.

Applications for both positions are due by November 1. Applicants to the Cinema Studies search should submit a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, representative publications, and three letters of reference, all in PDF format. Applicants to the Animation search should submit a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, and list of three references, all in PDF format. Senior candidates are not required to submit references at this time. Late applications may be considered by the committee on an individual basis.
