Updated: about 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime

The Film and New Media Program at NYU Abu Dhabi is currently inviting applications for a full-time tenured/tenure-track, open-rank position in Film, New Media, and Digital and Interactive Media Studies.

We are looking for a scholar who works in the field of Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian film history and theory. We encourage applications from scholars working within interdisciplinary fields (such as postcolonial, gender, transnational, and environmental studies) to connect to other programs within the university’s liberal arts curriculum. 

The selected candidate/s will be required to teach entry-level studies courses to the program as well as advanced courses that could be focussed on Film, New Media, Digital Media Studies, and theory as well as hybrid courses that bring together studies and practice such as working with found footage, archival material, text, image, animation to explore research questions and thematic concentrations. 

The Film and New Media Program at NYUAD hopes to emerge as a unique location to foster exchange between the cinemas of the broader Indian Ocean region. Our students take both practice and studies courses and finish their degree with a capstone project that reflects the cultural and historical context of their interests and studies. The Film and New Media program brings together the energy and charge of a multicultural education setting with students and faculty from across the globe in our classrooms and in our mentoring of students. 


Candidates for this position should hold a Ph.D. as well as significant undergraduate or graduate teaching experience.
