NYU Abu Dhabi seeks leading scholars for tenured, tenure-track or contract appointments in its Music program in 1) musicology and/or in 2) ethnomusicology, with a preference for those with an expertise in music of the Middle Eastern region, and 3) performance, a professional with the ability to organize a performance program. Junior scholars with clear research profiles will be considered; dossiers of scholars at the associate- or full-professor level are highly desirable. The successful candidate 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 who maintain an active agenda of research, have publications appropriate to their rank, and have a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching.

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.

Entering its third year, NYU Abu Dhabi has already recruited a cohort of faculty who are at once distinguished in their research and teaching. Our first two classes of 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 tenure-track and contract positions are due by November 1, 2012; applications received later will be reviewed until the position is filled. To be considered, applicants should submit a cover letter describing their experience and aspirations, a Curriculum Vitae, and three letters of reference, all in PDF format. Senior candidates are not required to submit references at this time.
