About NYU Abu Dhabi Established in partnership between New York University (NYU) and the emirate of Abu Dhabi, over the last decade, NYUAD has assembled a remarkable community of scholars, students, researchers, artists, inventors, and others who have contributed to the growth of the UAE’s capital as a global hub of knowledge and culture while establishing a new model of higher education for today’s complex world.
NYUAD is animated by inspiring and diverse faculty, students, and staff working together in an exciting and dynamic city. As an international center of excellence in teaching and research, our goal is to attract outstanding faculty who are leaders in their fields, encouraging them to create programs that draw outstanding students and provide an intellectually rich environment.
NYUAD students come from more than 126 countries, with no single nationality exceeding more than 15 percent of the total student population. Likewise, our over 320 faculty members represent more than 45 nationalities and bring a global perspective to their classrooms and research projects. NYUAD is committed to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of inclusion, diversity, belonging and equity (IDBE), which is fundamental to the University’s commitment to excellence. Visit our website for more information on NYUAD’s commitment to IDBE and how these values are fundamental to our mission.
Students are drawn from among the world’s best. They are bright, intellectually passionate, and committed to building a campus environment anchored in mutual respect, understanding, and care. The NYUAD undergraduate student body has garnered an impressive record of scholarships, graduate-school admissions, and other global honors. Graduate education is an area of growth for the University, and expected to expand in the next decade as graduate programs are added.

The Academic Enrichment Program at NYU Abu Dhabi is an academic program designed to help prepare Emirati students to succeed as fully matriculated students in a liberal arts and research university. The program focuses on developing linguistic and argumentation skills through three thematically integrated courses that scaffold learning and provide solid preparation for student engagement in the liberal arts curriculum. The Academic Enrichment Program consistently advises students as they negotiate the transition to the university. AEP also works with students to enhance individual academic and cultural experiences while also giving them a sense of personal accomplishment and growth.
NYUAD is inviting applications for a full-time Lecturer rank position in the Academic Enrichment Program to begin Fall 2024. We seek candidates from across disciplines, but most specifically in the fields of history and political science, who are interested in contributing to conversations about multilingualism, language development, diversified instruction, and educational pedagogies. Applicants should have experience teaching writing at a college or university. Ideal candidates will have experience working with students from diverse cultural and language backgrounds.
The candidate is expected to teach courses over the entire academic year, at a continuance of three meetings per week, work directly with the students, and participate in program activities and meetings with colleagues.
The Lecturer's appointment is for a period of three years, beginning in the Fall of 2024, and is potentially renewable and subject to a probationary review at the end of the first year. Lecturers teach up to six sections (or their equivalent) of the courses over the academic year; report to the Director of the Academic Enrichment Program; work closely with the instructors within the program to assist in writing; mentor students in academic advising, and participate in program development activities.
Lecturers attend orientation in August, continue ongoing research in their academic or creative fields, participate in regular professional development workshops throughout the academic year, and contribute to the intellectual life of NYUAD.
Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until February 15, 2024.

Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Recent teaching evaluations (if available)
Diversity Statement (how you would contribute to inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity)
2 representative publications or other writing samples
Names and email addresses of 3 references (each will be contacted to upload their reference via Interfolio).
We anticipate that successful candidates can start the appointment and relocate to Abu Dhabi in the academic year 2024-2025.
