Faculty Positions in Electrical Engineering 2016-17

The Electrical Engineering (EE) Program in the Computer, Electrical, and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering (CEMSE) Division at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) invites applications for faculty positions at all ranks (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professors) starting from Fall 2016, with preference for candidates at the Assistant Professor level. Candidates applying for a position of Assistant Professor should have an excellent potential for high impact research. Candidates applying for Associate and Full Professor positions should have a distinguished track record in research and a strong commitment to service and teaching at graduate level.

KAUST is an international, graduate research university dedicated to advancing science and technology through interdisciplinary research, education, and innovation. Located in Saudi Arabia, on the eastern shores of the Red Sea, KAUST offers superb research facilities, generous baseline research funding, and internationally competitive salaries, together with unmatched living conditions for individuals and families. 

KAUST is committed to maintaining a diverse faculty body and encourages applications from women faculty candidates.

The EE program at KAUST is recognized for its vibrant research programs and collaborative environment. EE core research competencies in energy efficiency, nanoelectronics and nanotechnology, sensors, as well as communications, computer vision, and control systems, are strongly supported by KAUST’s international research collaboration network and KAUST’s advanced research facilities such as the Nanofabrication, the Imaging and Characterization, and the Supercomputing Core Facilities.

Priority will be given to candidates with research interests in all the areas that represent an enhancement to the existing core research by offering complementary capabilities in the Electro Physics and Systems tracks within the EE program:

 1- Electro-Physics: (i) Integrated systems & sensors and (ii) Power electronics.

 2- Systems: (i) Internet of things & cyberphysical systems and (ii) Signal processing for big data and       networks.

You will be required to complete a brief application form and upload a single PDF file including:

  • A complete curriculum vitae with a list of publications
  • A research plan
  • A statement of teaching interests
  • The names and contact information for at least 3 references for an Assistant Professor position
  • A list with the names and affiliation of potential referees for Associate Professor, Full Professor, or Researchers who have equivalent positions in Industrial or National research laboratories.

Note: Because of the high volume of applications that we receive, only applications submitted through the online form will be considered. Applications will be evaluated as soon as they are received, and will receive full consideration until the positions are filled.
