We are inviting applications for a Post-Doctoral Associate in the Division of Social Science at NYU Abu Dhabi from those who have or will soon receive a PhD in one of the social sciences or a related discipline. The appointment will begin September 1, 2023, subject to final budget approval.

The Post-Doctoral Associate will spend half their time on independent research, and half of their time on collaborative research with Professors Anju Mary Paul and Bedoor AlShebli. The collaborative research will be at the intersection of international migration studies, and science and technology studies, with a focus on scientist migrations, the emergence of new science hubs, and shifting scientific cultures.

We seek a candidate whose field of specialization is migration, science and technology studies, or the science of science. Training in qualitative research methods is essential, while skills in quantitative research methods, programming or knowledge in statistical packages would be welcome though not required.

The position does not require teaching, but it may be possible to get teaching experience for compensation. You would be part of a group of over 20 post-doctoral fellows and 70 faculty in the Division of Social Science.

For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, statement of research interests and two letters of reference, all in PDF format.
