Mathematics – Visiting Professor

NYU Abu Dhabi

The Division of Science at NYU Abu Dhabi is searching for accomplished faculty to conduct important research and teach the next generation of global leaders.

You are invited to apply for a visiting faculty teaching position in Mathematics. Applicants holding a PhD, with teaching experience in all areas of mathematics, both pure and applied, are welcome to apply. Candidates are expected to be excellent teachers of undergraduate courses. The expected teaching load is three to four courses per academic year. The classes are relatively small and typically have at most 24 students.

Faculty in the Program in Mathematics, who have strong ties to NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and its faculty, can contribute to multidisciplinary research, potentially working with scholars from other programs in areas that include cryptography, bioinformatics and biostatistics, data science, environmental science and climate change, among others. Current interests of the faculty include mathematical physics (especially statistical mechanics and geometric, topological, and conformal aspects of field theories), nonlinear PDEs, functional analysis, and representation theory.

Faculty have access to state-of-the-art core facilities that include next-generation DNA sequencing, robotics, advanced microscopy and high performance computing facilities with more than 6,400 computing cores and a peak performance of 70 TFLOPS.
