NYU Abu Dhabi

NYU Abu Dhabi is looking for outstanding faculty in all areas of
Computer Science. One particular focus area for hiring this year is in
Data Science. This especially includes research on applications
ranging from Computational and Systems Biology to Social Network
Analysis to Urban Informatics, but also work on general tools and
systems for dealing with large data sets and on basic techniques in
Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Visualization. Successful
candidates will find a congenial research environment that includes
supportive and highly motivated colleagues, access to significant
resources, a competitive startup package, and broad opportunities for
interdisciplinary research across the different campuses of the NYU
system. For example, researchers interested in applying their work to
Genomics and Systems Biology may join the newly formed Center for
Genomics and Systems Biology at NYUAD (in collaboration with the NYU
Genome Center), and participate in several large scale genomics
projects underway in Abu Dhabi and globally. Researchers in Social
Network Analysis may participate in the NYU Social Media in Political
Participation center at NYU, with participants spanning the CS,
Political Science, Psychology, and Biology departments. Others may
want to join the NYU Data Science Center, or collaborate with
colleagues in the new NYU Center for Urban Science and
Progress. Successful candidates will also have priority access to the
NYU Abu Dhabi High Performance Computing facilities, including the new
Butinah cluster with more than 6400 computing cores and a peak
performance of 70 TFLOPS.

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
degree-granting campuses - New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi -
complemented by 12 additional academic centers across five
continents. Faculty and students will circulate within the network in
pursuit of common research interests and cross-cultural,
interdisciplinary endeavors, both local and global.

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

The terms of employment are highly 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. Appointments can begin as soon as
September 1, 2013, but candidates may elect to start as late as
September 1, 2014.

Applications are due by January 15, 2013; however, applications
received later will be reviewed until the positions are
filled. Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, statements of
teaching and research interests (not to exceed three pages each), no
more than three representative publications and three letters of
reference in PDF format to be considered. Please visit our website at
