​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES - MATERIAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Material Science and Engineering Program is recruiting outstanding, multinational faculty, postdoctoral fellows, research scientists​ and staff to help one of the world's finest teaching and research institutions fulfill its educational and research missions​.

KAUST offers superb research facilities including KAUST Core Labs, generous assured research funding and internationally competitive salaries.

The Material Science and Engineering Program at KAUST currently has sixteen full-time faculty members undertaking research in the areas of materials synthesis and design, inorganic/organic electronics, alternative energy, advanced characterization, computational methods, nanoscale materials and devices and other related areas.

The KAUST Solar Center (KSC) which carries out cutting-edge research in solar energy is affiliated with the program. 

FACULTY OPENINGS


We invite qualified applicants to apply for faculty positions at all ranks (Assistant, Associate and Full Professor) in the Material Science and Engineering Program in the following areas of expertise:​​

2-D Material Design, Synthesis & Properties

  • The candidate should have extensive knowledge and experience in 2D materials growth by the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method and experience with CVD systems.  This includes growth of materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides, graphene, and their heterostructures. The candidate is also expected to have experience in characterization and device applications of 2D materials.
    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.

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW AND RESEARCHER OPENINGS

KAUST seeks to attract high-caliber Postdoctoral Fellows and Research Scientists to support the University's research mission. 
Coming from across the globe, the University's Postdoctoral Fellows and Research Scientists bring new knowledge and innovative techniques to create a collaborative environment in which ideas and initiatives are continuously cultivated.​

Postdoctoral Openings Material Science and Engineering

  • One Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available immediately in the Laboratory for Carbon Nanostructures​ in the Physical Science and Engineering Division of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Candidates with expert-level skills in the growth of carbon nanostructures by chemical vapor deposition are encouraged to apply. 

    Major Responsibilities

    The research fellow is expected to propose and optimize new growth methods for carbon nanostructures besides keeping abreast with novel laboratory and industry-based growth approaches and identify synthesis strategies with potential for scale-up. Results will be communicated in the appropriate forums (e.g. journals and conferences) or prepared for intellectual property protection. Further to this, assistance in the day-to-day coordination of the laboratory growth  activities as well as in the guidance of graduate students is anticipated. Enthusiasm to participate in the elaboration of competitive funding proposals is also desirable.​

    Technical Skills
    Proficiency in English is fundamental as well as good communication skills. A track-record of high quality scientific publications as first (or corresponding) author in the CVD field is necessary. ​

    Required Education

    A PhD in materials science, chemistry, physics or related areas is mandatory. The candidate must have first-hand experience in the growth of carbon nanotubes and/or graphene using hot- and/or cold-wall CVD reactors. Someone familiar with AIXTRON reactors would be highly considered. ​​
