NYUAD Research Position

Interested in Data Research? 

A new and exciting research lab at New York University - Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) is offering one-year research internships (open to undergraduates and graduates), PhD and PostDoc positions under the supervision of Professor Azza Abouzied. We are looking for talented and dedicated students with a strong technical computer science background to be part of an innovative, energetic, and well-funded research community.

Our Research 

My lab works primarily on solving problems at the intersection of data and people. We design new interaction techniques that allow people to make sense of their data. Some of our projects are motivated by real applications, where we try to enable users to make sense of a particular data set such as historical data sets, transportation or behavior data sets, etc. Other projects are more general: we build tools that support data analysis, querying, collection and curation through intuitive interfaces.

My team's research method is systems-driven: we build interactive systems that embody our research ideas, we evaluate our hypotheses, and we then study the limits of our ideas usually from a theoretical perspective. Our research thus combines interface design, systems and theory.

Why NYU Abu Dhabi? 

New York University (NYU) has established itself as a Global Network University, a multi-site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three foundational, degree-granting campuses: New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, complemented by a network of more than fifteen research and study-away sites across five continents.

Entering its fourth year, NYU Abu Dhabi has recruited a cohort of faculty who are at once distinguished in their research and teaching. NYU Abu Dhabi's highly selective liberal arts enterprise is complemented by an institute for advanced research, sponsoring research projects across the arts, humanities, social sciences, sciences, and engineering.

The positions are open until filled. Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, list of publications and two letters of reference in PDF format to be considered.

Salary and benefits: competitive salary and benefits are offered.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…
