We are inviting applications for a Post-Doctoral Associate in the Division of Social Science at NYU Abu Dhabi from those who have or will soon receive a PhD in one of the social sciences or a related discipline. The appointment will begin September 1, 2023, subject to final budget approval. Post-doctoral associates will spend half their time on independent research, and half on collaborative research with Professors Kinga Makovi and Jemima A. Frimpong, who will also serve as mentors. The collaborative research will involve surveys and experiments on information disclosure in organizational contexts. Drawing on network and decision-making theories, projects will focus on how disclosure shapes individual wellbeing and influences organizational performance. The postholder should have experience with primary data collection and quantitative data analysis skills. Experience with survey design is a plus, but not required. The position does not require teaching, but it may be possible to get teaching experience for compensation. This is a two-year postdoc position, renewable for a third year based on performance. 

For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, statement of research interests and two letters of reference, all in PDF format. If you have any questions, please email Professor Kinga Makovi at
