Post-Doctoral Associate in Sociology, NYU Abu Dhabi

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 sociology 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 Onoso Imoagene. The collaborative research will be in international migration research with a focus on second generation Africans in the United States, Africans in China, and Chinese migrants in Africa.

The ideal candidate would have a specialization in international migration and race and ethnicity but scholars with interests in other subfields are also encouraged to apply. The candidate should have experience working with quantitative survey data, and additional quantitative skills are preferred. Fluency in Chinese languages is ideal but not a requirement for the position.

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.

The terms of employment are very competitive and include housing and educational subsidies for children.

For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, transcript of degree, statement of research interests, and two letters of reference, all in PDF format.

The deadline is November 15, 2023, and applications will be accepted immediately and considered until the position is filled.


If you have any questions, please email Professor Onoso Imoagene at oii1@nyu.edu.
