NYUAD Research Institute / Humanities Research Fellowship for the Study of the Arab World

The NYU Abu Dhabi Research Institute invites scholars who wish to contribute to the vibrant research culture of NYUAD’s Saadiyat campus to apply for a residential fellowship, starting September 2023.

The Institute welcomes applications from scholars working in all areas of the Humanities related to the study of the Arab world, its rich literature and history, its cultural and artistic heritage, and its manifold connections with other cultures. This includes, among others, Islamic Intellectual History and Culture, any areas of particular relevance to the MENA region, as well as projects thematically connected to existing research projects and initiatives at NYUAD’s divisions of Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences (see https://nyuad.nyu.edu/en/research.html).

Both distinguished scholars with an established reputation and promising scholars who are at the beginning of their career can apply for a research fellowship in residence at NYUAD. The program awards one-year fellowships.

Each fellow receives a competitive stipend commensurate with experience, housing, health insurance, work/office space on campus, full access to NYUAD’s library facilities (with close connections to NYU’s main library in New York), research allowance, an opportunity to host a small workshop funded by the Research Institute, and support for travel to and from Abu Dhabi.

We expect successful candidates to relocate to Abu Dhabi and commence their appointment on September 1, 2023, pending final approval.

The fellowship program is hosted by the NYU Abu Dhabi Research Institute. For more information, please visit our website.

Applications are due October 3, 2022.
