    Visiting Professor  (Business & Society Program)

    New York University (NYU) Abu Dhabi


    The Division of Social Science at New York University (NYU) Abu Dhabi is searching for visiting faculty to educate the next generation of global leaders.

    You are invited to apply for a visiting faculty position in a new undergraduate program (B.A. in Business and Society). The business and society program is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the role and impact of business within society. Established on principles of the liberal arts, the program integrates business theory and application, and prepares students to effectively and holistically examine the implications of business decisions on society from multiple perspectives (i.e., social, political, economic, and cultural). 

    The program seeks applicants whose research and teaching are rooted in organization and management. Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage, in both research and teaching. There are many collaboration opportunities within NYUAD, which already houses a number of interdisciplinary research centers, including the Center for Behavioral Institutional Design (C-BID) and the Center for Interacting Urban Networks (CITIES).

    The visiting position is typically for one academic year and the expected teaching load is four courses. A shorter visit, i.e., a semester, with a reduction in teaching load may be considered. The classes are relatively small and typically have at most 24 students. Candidates are expected to be excellent teachers of undergraduate courses. While the following list is not inclusive, anticipated courses/subject areas may include: Corporate Social Responsibility, Social Ventures; Leading for Social Impact; Business Law, Diversity and Inclusion in Organizations; Design thinking; Managerial Negotiations; Strategy; Operations Management; Management and Organization; Business and Technology; Business Ethics; and Entrepreneurship.


    This position requires a Ph.D. in Management, Industrial Organization, Organizational Sociology, Organizational Psychology, Social Psychology, or a related field.

    We seek individuals who have a strong record of teaching, mentoring, and scholarship, and have the ability to develop and lead high-quality teaching and research with special attention to business and society.

    To apply for this position, please submit the following documents here.

    • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
    • Cover Letter
    • Teaching Statement 
    • Research Statement
    • Recent Teaching Evaluations (if available)
