FACUL​TY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING​​

Postdoctoral Opening - Micro- and Nano-fabrication of Bio-inspired Textures; Wetting Transitions

  • ​We solicit applications for a postdoctoral position in Professor Himanshu Mishra's research group (Interfacial Lab - https://interfaciallab.kaust.edu.sa).

    Various aspects of our research project include:

    1. Micro- and nano-fabrication of (bio-inspired) textures through lithography, 3D printing, and unconventional methods

    2. Time-dependent wetting transitions on rough surfaces; optical properties – iridescence.

    3. Drag reduction: experiments and simulations

    The candidate should have experience in micro- and nano-fabrication techniques, such as photolithography, dry etching, e-beam lithography, Nanoscribe, and III-D printing. Prior experience with characterizing wetting, drag reduction, optical properties, and computational fluid dynamics would be a great advantage. We expect the individual to be curiosity-driven, dedicated, and a team player; meticulous at planning experiments, and possess strong scientific writing skills.

    The position is ideal for a self-motivated creative researcher due to unparalleled infrastructure and possibilities to conduct experiments and explore collaborations within and outside KAUST.

Postdoctoral Opening - Advanced Materials for Precision Agriculture in Drylands

  • ​We solicit applications for a postdoctoral position in Professor Himanshu Mishra's research Group (Interfacial Lab) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia (https://interfaciallab.kaust.edu.sa).

    Described below are various aspects of our research project:
    1. Development of novel mulches through chemical processing and conducting field trials,
    2. Development of farm machinery for spray coatings,
    3. Biochar: preparation, characterization, and applications
    The candidate should have a PhD in agricultural engineering, plant science, or a related field with prior experience in some of the above-mentioned areas. We expect the individual to be curiosity-driven, dedicated, and a team player; meticulous at planning experiments and hard-working; and possess strong scientific writing skills.

    The position is ideal for a self-motivated, creative researcher due to unparalleled infrastructure and possibilities to conduct experiments and explore collaborations within and outside KAUST.

Postdoctoral Opening - High Fidelity Simulations and Analysis of Combustion Systems

  • ​The Computational Reacting Flows Laboratory in the Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is seeking talented postdoctoral researchers in the area of high fidelity, high performance modeling for advanced combustion systems. Areas of interest include:

    • High fidelity simulation (DNS/LES) of turbulent flames with detailed chemistry
    • High fidelity simulation of internal combustion engines, including spray and combustion
    • Code management and optimization for high performance computing
    • Visualization, data-mining, and machine-learning for massive simulation data
    • Advanced algorithms for large scale combustion simulations (AMR, chemistry reduction, GPU, etc.)
    • Theoretical analysis of combustion and flames

    Qualifications:

    The candidate should have, or expect to have, a PhD degree in a related field with prior research experience stated in the above. The postdoctoral research activities will involve synergistic collaborations with many other outstanding faculty members and researchers at KAUST CCRC, thus further enhancing productivity and visibility of the conducted research work.
