We seek a candidate with a strong background in the fundamental characterization of surfaces and interfaces. The successful applicant is expected to develop state-of-theart ex/in-situ surface and interface analysis methods, and establish strong collaborations with faculty working on various types of devices. Candidates with demonstrated capability to understand interfacial phenomena in materials and devices are encouraged to apply.
The Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) program tackles grand challenges in sustainability and alternative energy, nanotechnology and nano electronics, biomaterials, materials characterization, and low-power computing. The program aims to support KAUST's solar, membrane, catalysis, combustion, and desalination research centers.
The Physical Science and Engineering Division comprises seven Degree Programs: Material Science and Engineering, Applied Physics, Earth Science and Engineering, Energy Resources and Petroleum Engineering, Chemical Science, Chemical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. These disciplines provide the foundation for our Division's quest to address some of the major challenges that we face in the world today, including those related to energy and the environment. Specifically, our faculty members and their research teams work on photovoltaics, super capacitors, porous materials, clean combustion, atmospheric modeling and other topics.
PSE division invites applications for faculty position at all ranks.
A relevant Ph.D. degree. Proven track record in managing a research group as well as publishing high-impact papers.
Teaching and service responsibilities
