​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​WELCOME TO THE FACULTY OF EARTH SCIENCE & ENGINEERING

​​​
FAC​ULTY CHAIR:

Martin Mai, Ph.D.​​​​
P​​rofessor of Earth Science and Engineering
Building 1, Level 3, Room 3114

The faculty of Earth Science and Engineering is housed in the Physical Science and Engineering Division.  In our research we apply experimental and numerical methods to study physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere, the oceans, in shallow soils and in the deep Earth. The work of students and scientists in Earth Science and Engineering addresses important problems related to oil recovery, mapping renewable energy resources, and quantifying and understanding geological and tectonic processes of the Earth.  We then transform our fundamental research into applications related to quantitative hazard assessment (natural and human-induced), environmental safety and sustainable economic development. ​

CURRENT OPENINGS IN FACULTY OF EARTH SCIENCE & ENGINEERING:


The Physical Science and Engineering Division invites applications for faculty positions at all ranks (Assistant, Associate and Full Professor). 

This institution uses Interfolio online application system.  To prevent any delays in reviewing your application, you will need to upload the following materials to your application file. 

- Up-to-date CV which includes full publication list 

- Statement of research interests

- A statement of teaching interests 

- A list of the names/affiliation and contact details of at least four potential referees

- Two citation reports (Web of Science and Scopus)

- Copies of most relevant publications (Maximum of five)

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high volume of applications that we receive only applications submitted through the online application system will be considered. Applications received by the advertised deadline will receive full consideration. However, positions will remain open until filled. 


Professor of Climate and Aerosol Science

  • We are recruiting a Climate and/or Aerosol Scientist, with expertise in climate variability and climate change, aerosol processes and aerosol radiative impact on global and regional atmospheric and oceanic energy balance and dynamics. Experience in the analysis of observations and interest in conducting aerosol and climate monitoring as well as modeling would be an advantage.

    The successful applicant should have a proven track record in publishing high-impact papers, and is expected to establish a thriving research program. Engaging in national and international scientific collaborations is part of the KAUST spirit. Commitment to high-quality teaching at the graduate level,and active participation in the KAUST academic and community life is what makes KAUST faculty unique.

Faculty in Solid Earth Geophysics

  • ​We are recruiting faculty in Solid Earth Geophysics with expertise in seismic wave phenomena, focusing on seismic data analysis, seismic interferometry, ambient noise imaging, big data analysis, numerical simulations, and utilization of smart sensor technologies. Experience in imaging geo-reservoirs (oil, gas,geothermal) through passive and time lapse reservoir monitoring is desired.

    The successful applicant should have a proven track record in publishing high-impact papers, and is expected to establish a thriving research program. Engaging in national and international scientific collaborations is part of the KAUST spirit. Commitment to high-quality teaching at the graduate level, and active participation in the KAUST academic and community life is what makes KAUST faculty unique.
