Mechanical Engineering
NYU Abu Dhabi
The Division of Engineering at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track faculty position in its Mechanical Engineering (ME) program. Available openings are at the Associate/Full Professor ranks. As a part of a major multi-year growth plan, the following areas, broadly defined, are of particular interest at the present time: Robotics, Sustainable Manufacturing, Composites, and Renewable Energy Systems. Candidates with a strong record of interdisciplinary research in emerging areas are preferred. We expect successful candidates to commence their appointment on January 1, 2019 or September 1, 2019, subject to final budget approval.
NYUAD has state-of-the-art research facilities in a new 15 acre campus on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The core research infrastructure is especially noteworthy, with extensive and exceptional range of instruments and capabilities. In addition, the Engineering Division of NYUAD has close collaborations with the faculty and students of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and has access to the world-class research centers and research infrastructure in New York. Our students are drawn from around the globe, surpassing all traditional academic benchmarks. In the past four years, the NYUAD undergraduate student body has garnered an impressive record of scholarships, graduate-school appointments, and many other honors including eight Rhodes scholars since 2014. The NYUAD Global PhD Fellowship attracts the best talent from across the world for pursuing doctoral research on campus.

Candidates must have a PhD degree in ME or related disciplines and must have demonstrated their ability to develop and lead high-quality research and attract competitive external funding. NYUAD provides competitive start-up packages that are on par with the best in class as well as very competitive salaries and relocation packages to its faculty. It is also expected that the successful candidate will become a Global Network Professor of NYU that allows research privileges and access to programs and facilities at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. 
Review of applications will begin November 15, 2017, and shortlisted candidates will be invited to visit the campuses in Abu Dhabi and New York in the Spring of 2018. Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and statements of teaching and research interests. To complete the online process, applicants will be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Referees will be contacted to upload their reference letters only if the candidate is shortlisted for further consideration.
