NYU Shanghai is the first Sino-US higher education joint venture to grant a degree that is accredited in the US as well as in China. A research university with liberal arts and sciences at its core, it resides in one of the world’s great cities, which is also a vibrant intellectual community (http://shanghai.nyu.edu/). NYU Shanghai will recruit scholars who are committed to our global vision of transformative teaching and innovative research.
New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, with three degree granting campuses – New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi – complemented by 12 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.
The terms of employment in NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites of the global network, engaging in both research and teaching opportunities. Tenure/tenure-track faculty will also be affiliated with the New York University Department of Philosophy and/or with other suitable academic units at NYU New York.
