New York University Abu Dhabi is inviting applications for a Post-Doctoral Associate to join a dynamic and interdisciplinary research group, led by Professor Borja García de Soto (Division of Engineering) and Professor Sanjeev Goyal (Division of Social Science).

The selected applicant will be conducting research to better understand the cybersecurity challenges (vulnerabilities) across the lifecycle of construction projects due to the increasingly digitalized and connected built environments. She/he will do that by, among other things, considering the interaction among the network participants for different project delivery methods. Insights from this analysis will be used to provide recommendations or policies to prevent the spread of vulnerabilities by employing specific cybersecurity protocols and/or utilizing cyber assessment frameworks.

Applicants must have a recent PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering Operations Research or a related field. Strong knowledge of game theory plus clear evidence of related research. Experience in the areas of construction management and building information modeling (BIM) will be an advantage. Excellent communication skills in English, the ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams, and scientific creativity are essential.

Applications will be accepted immediately, and candidates will be considered until the position is filled. To be considered, all applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae including a list of publications, a one-page summary of research accomplishments and interests, and, if applicable, reprints of two representative articles, all in PDF format, through the NYUAD online application portal. Short-listed applicants will be asked to provide a minimum of three letters of recommendation. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to
