Chemistry Professor - Open Rank

Feb 17, 2021


The Division of Science at NYU Abu Dhabi invites applications for faculty positions within its Chemistry Program. We particularly welcome applications from female scholars as well as members of traditionally underrepresented groups. 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 are invited to apply for an open-rank, tenure-track/tenured faculty position in all areas of chemistry, with a preference to candidates with a background in materials science. Applicants who hold a PhD should demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage in both research and teaching. This includes publications in leading peer-reviewed journals or conferences as well as a demonstrated potential to lead research projects and secure research funding. Faculty in the Program in Chemistry contribute to the multidisciplinary research at NYU Abu Dhabi that is a signature of the institution's liberal arts concept. Candidates are expected to be outstanding scholars with exceptional productivity in their fields, and to act as inspirational teachers and mentors to undergraduate and graduate students.

Successful candidates will receive a generous startup package as well as renewable research funding to hire research assistants and postdocs, and will also have access to internal funding. Faculty have access to Core Technology Platforms (CTP) that house state-of-the-art instruments and qualified specialists in advanced manufacturing and electronics, analytical and materials characterization, high-throughput screening, microscopy, micro-fabrication, molecular and cell biology, photonics and spectroscopy, and others. The Center for Research Computing (CRC) provides high-performance computing facilities and support for application hosting, data management and storage, big data, artificial intelligence (AI), file transfer, and other activities through the Linux cluster "Dalma" comprising around 12,000 computing cores and a peak performance of 385 TFLOPS.
