NYU Abu Dhabi, through its NYU Abu Dhabi Institute seeks to be a world-class center of cutting-edge research, scholarship, and cultural activity.  The institute offers outstanding facilities; research funding at a significant level and with exceptional continuity of support; and a vigorous, cohesive, and interactive intellectual environment.   Further details about the institute are found at


The Institute has recently award a five-year research grant to the PI to develop a research group focused on advancing key observational and modeling aspects relating to global sea-level change.  The substantive grant is renewable for a second five-year period. The research group will work in various areas of sea-level change science areas ranging from meteorological, oceanographic, and glaciological observations, both in situ and remote sensing, as well as component and coupled models of the atmosphere, ocean, and glacier system.  The research group will also support sea-level and coastal environment change-focused scientific exchange and educational outreach in the Middle East. 


Positions are available for several research scientists and postdoctoral researchers with expertise in the broad spectrum of scientific activities pertaining to global sea level change research.   All positions are based in Abu Dhabi, but researchers may spend up to two months per year at the Courant Institute in New York City.


Research Scientists will collaborate directly with the PI, develop their own research agenda in accordance with the overall goals of the project, help supervise postdoctoral associates, and develop a long-term relationship with other sea-level change research activities worldwide.  Appointments are made for an initial two-year period, and are renewable, pending positive annual review.  Postdoctoral Research Fellows will work closely with the PI and Research Scientists.  Positions are offered for two-year periods, pending positive annual review.  


Salary is dependent upon qualifications.  NYU Abu Dhabi offers substantial benefits including allowances for housing, transportation, and home visits, in addition to health insurance and an attractive retirement plan.  Exceptional candidates may be considered for joint appointments as tenure-track professor at the NYU Abu Dhabi college.
