Job Title: Social Neuroscience Professor - Open Rank

Job Rank: Rank Open; Tenured / Tenure Track

Specialty Areas: Cognitive Science; Neurolinguistics; Sociolinguistics; Biology; Psychology; Economics; Political Science; Sociology


The Division of Social Science at NYUAD is seeking to hire a faculty member in the area of Social Neuroscience. This tenure/tenure-track appointment is open rank. Although the specific area of research is open, the focus should be human research explicitly linked to social processes. Individuals from all academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply (e.g., biology, psychology, economics, political science or sociology). Preference will be given to applicants who use fMRI, EEG, or process tracing methods, whose research reflects the interdisciplinary nature of social science and who can forge linkages to other areas of study both within the Division (i.e., with economists, political scientists and sociologists) and outside the Division.

The facilities available include a state-of-the-art brain- imaging center housing a Siemens Prisma 3T MRI, MEG, EEG, eye tracking and behavioral testing facilities. The successful candidates will also have access to state of the art core facilities that include High Performance Computing facilities with more than 6,400 computing cores and a peak performance of 70 TFLOPS.

NYUAD expects successful candidates to publish in high quality internationally refereed journals. The terms of employment are very competitive and include generous start-up and on-going research funds, as well as housing subsidies and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend an occasional semester at NYU New York and other sites of the global network, engaging in both research and teaching activities.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research plans, a statement of teaching interests and three representative publications. To complete the online process, early career applicants will be prompted to enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Each referee will be contacted to upload their reference letter. Senior candidates should provide a list of three references in PDF format. We will begin consideration of applications October 1st, although review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
