GLOBAL HISTORIES INSTRUCTOR
New York University has established a campus in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and its Opportunities Program (OP) invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track position to teach Global Histories to academically outstanding students from the UAE. Global Histories will follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum that will be structured to address gaps in background knowledge of OP students.
Appointments are for one year and subject to renewal. Instructors teach four sections (or their equivalent) of courses over the academic year, work directly with OP students, and participate in program activities. Applicants should have a minimum of two years of experience teaching World History in a secondary school or in a college or university and/or be certified to teach. Applicants must have an advanced degree; PhD is preferred. NYUAD is looking for creative individuals who are flexible, outgoing, open to new environments, and respectful of diverse backgrounds and learning styles.
Instructors will attend orientation in August, will participate in regular professional development workshops throughout the academic year, and are encouraged to participate actively in the intellectual life of NYUAD.
NYU’s Global Network University is a multi-site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three degree-granting campuses - New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi - complemented by 12 additional academic centers across five continents. Faculty and students will circulate within the network in pursuit of common research interests and cross-cultural, interdisciplinary endeavors, both local and global.
In its third year, NYU Abu Dhabi has recruited a cohort of faculty who are at once distinguished in their research and teaching. Our 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.
Review of applications will begin immediately for Fall 2013 appointments and continue until positions are filled. Applications should include: a cover letter that explains your interest in teaching Global Histories in Abu Dhabi and specific qualities you will bring to the Opportunities Program; statement of teaching philosophy; a sample lesson plan on a topic of your choice; and current CV.
