Professor of Business, Organizations and Society (Tenured/Tenure-track), Open Rank
Division of Social Science
NYU Abu Dhabi

The Division of Social Science at NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) is searching for new faculty to conduct innovative research and educate the next generation. You are invited to apply for a tenured or tenure-track open-rank position in a new undergraduate program, a B.A. in Business, Organizations and Society. The program is interdisciplinary and 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 take on roles in businesses and effectively and holistically examine the implications of business decisions for society from multiple perspectives (i.e., social, political, economic, and cultural).

The program seeks applicants whose research and teaching are rooted in management, organizational studies, or a related area. Applicants should provide a strong record of scholarship, and evidence of potential to develop and lead high-quality research, with national and international significance. Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage, in both research and teaching. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and maintain a cutting edge, innovative, and highly visible research program; participate in student advising and mentorship; teach graduate and/or undergraduate courses in the area of management, entrepreneurship, social impact, and business analytics; or develop new courses in their area of expertise, as appropriate. This position features a standard teaching load of three courses per year.

The interdisciplinary composition and expertise within the Division of Social Science, as well as the Business, Organizations and Society program, will be used to expand research activities on how businesses influence and are influenced by the societies, political systems, and economies in which they operate. There are many collaboration opportunities within NYUAD, which already houses a number of interdisciplinary research centers and labs, including the Center for Behavioral Institutional Design (C-BID), Center for Interacting Urban Networks (CITIES), and Social Science Experimental Lab (SSEL).
