We are inviting applications for a Post-Doctoral Associate in the Division of Social Science at NYU Abu Dhabi from individuals who have or will soon receive a PhD in one of the social sciences or a related discipline. The appointment will begin September 1, 2024, subject to final budget approval.

 The Post-doctoral associate will spend half their time on independent research, and half of their time on collaborative research with Professor Stéphane Helleringer. The collaborative research will be on population health and its determinants in low-and-middle-income countries, with emphasis on measurement issues and the impact of crises such as epidemics and disasters. We seek a candidate whose field of specialization is in demography, epidemiology and/or public health.

 The position does not require teaching, but it may be possible to get teaching experience for compensation. You would be part of a group of over 20 post-doctoral fellows and 70 faculty in the Division of Social Science. You would also join the newly established research cluster on Health and Demography, which includes approximately 15 faculty members and post-doctoral fellows who are conducting research on population health, as well as fertility, family dynamics and migration.

 For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, statement of research interests and the names of two references, all in PDF format. If you have any questions, please email Stéphane Helleringer at
