NYU Shanghai Professor in Urban Studies
Posted: 11/02/2020


NYU Shanghai invites applications for a position at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor in Urban Studies. We seek candidates who have received training in a social science discipline and can conduct cutting-edging interdisciplinary research on a variety of urban issues, with a special interest in those whose research incorporates spatial analysis and/or urban data analytics. Preference will be given to those interested in conducting research relevant to the China/Asia context. The successful candidate will contribute to the curriculum development and join a growing interdisciplinary group of faculty and researchers in Urban Studies from the Social Sciences, Humanities, the Arts, Data Science, and Engineering at NYU Shanghai.

Terms of employment at NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions with respect to research start-up funds and compensation, and they include housing subsidies and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites of the NYU Global Network, engaging in both research and teaching.    

NYU Shanghai is the third degree-granting campus within New York University’s global network. It is the first higher education joint venture in China authorized to grant degrees that are accredited in the U.S. as well as in China. All teaching is conducted in English. A research university with liberal arts and science at its core, it resides in one of the world's great cities with a vibrant intellectual community. NYU Shanghai recruits scholars of the highest caliber who are committed to NYU's global vision of transformative teaching and innovative research and who embody the global society in which we live.
NYU’s global network includes degree-granting campuses in New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi, complemented by eleven additional academic centers across five continents. Faculty and students circulate within the network in pursuit of common research interests and cross-cultural, interdisciplinary endeavors, both local and global.

NYU Shanghai is an equal opportunity employer committed to equity, diversity, and social inclusion. We strongly encourage applications from under-represented individuals in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, and gender and sexual identity. NYU Shanghai affirms the value of differing perspectives on the world as we strive to build the strongest possible university with the widest reach.
