Computational Social Science Professor - Open Rank

The Social Science Division at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) is inviting applications for full time faculty positions in Computational Social Sciences, from senior scholars - at the rank of associate and full professors - and exceptional early career scholars.

We encourage applications from all excellent candidates in any field answering social-science questions, as long as they have a strong focus on (big) data collection and visualization; data management and analysis techniques such as machine learning, text analysis, network science/analysis, spatial data analysis/GIS .

All candidates should demonstrate important contributions to their area of research as evidenced e.g. by significant publications in top international academic journals and a history of acquiring third party funding, as well as the ability to mentor and collaborate with a group of junior social scientists.

NYUAD expects successful candidates to continue to publish in high quality internationally refereed journals. The position features a standard teaching load of three courses per year. The terms of employment are very competitive and include generous start-up and on-going research funds, as well as housing subsidies and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend an occasional semester at NYU New York and other sites of the Global Network, engaging in both research and teaching activities.

The review of applications will occur on a rolling basis. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for campus visits to NYU Abu Dhabi throughout 2018. We anticipate that successful candidates will start employment on August 15, 2019, subject to final budget approval.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research plans, a statement of teaching interests and three representative publications, to: https://apply.interfolio.com/52984.
