NYUAD values diversity, inclusion, belonging, and equity; such principles are fundamental to the university's commitment to excellence. Our faculty are the engines that sustain our inclusive environment; NYUAD students come from more than 115 countries, with no single one nationality exceeding more than 15 percent of the total student population. Likewise, our faculty are highly diverse and community-minded: our modern campus is home to over 320 faculty who represent more than 45 different nationalities, all of whom bring a global perspective to their classrooms and research projects. Research is advanced by over 400 highly qualified research staff, who are likewise drawn from all over the world.
Applicants are invited to apply for a open-rank, tenure-track/tenured faculty position in all areas of organic chemistry, with a preference to candidates with a research focus involving applications at the interface with biology or computer science. This includes but is not limited to natural product chemistry, medicinal chemistry, organometallic chemistry, chemical probes, screening technologies, biocatalysis, drug design and development, chemoinformatics, and bioorganic chemistry. Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage in both teaching and research. This includes publications in leading peer-reviewed journals, and participation in conferences. The candidates should have demonstrated potential to lead independent research projects, be open to develop collaboration networks with other faculty and internationally, and propose research projects that are likely to secure extramural research funding.
Successful candidates will find a vibrant research and teaching environment that includes supportive and highly motivated colleagues, access to outstanding resources for research, a generous startup package as well as renewable research funding, and broad opportunities for interdisciplinary work at NYU Abu Dhabi and across campuses of the NYU system. Faculty have access to Core Technology Platforms (CTP) that house state-of-the-art instruments and qualified specialists in high-throughput screening, microscopy, micro-fabrication, molecular and cell biology, photonics, spectroscopy, advanced manufacturing, analytical and materials characterization, and others. The Center for Research Computing (CRC) provides high-performance computing facilities and support for application hosting, data management and storage, big data, artificial intelligence (AI), file transfer, and other activities through the Linux cluster “Dalma” comprising around 12,000 computing cores and a peak performance of 385 TFLOPS.
