King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) 
Faculty Openings in Chemical and Biological Engineering

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is being
established in Saudi Arabia as an international graduate-level research
university dedicated to inspiring a new age of scientific achievement
that will benefit the region and the world. As an independent and
merit-based institution and one of the best endowed universities in the
world, KAUST intends to become a major new contributor to the global
network of collaborative research. It will enable researchers from
around the globe to work together to solve challenging scientific and
technological problems. The admission of students, the appointment,
promotion and retention of faculty and staff, and all the educational,
administrative and other activities of the University shall be conducted
on the basis of equality, without regard to race, colour, religion or

KAUST is located on the Red Sea at Thuwal (80 km north of Jeddah).
Opening in September 2009, KAUST welcomes exceptional researchers,
faculty and students from around the world. To be competitive, KAUST
will offer very attractive base salaries and a wide range of benefits.
Further information about KAUST can be found at 

KAUST invites applications for faculty position at all ranks (Assistant,
Associate or Full Professor) in Chemical and Biological Engineering
including areas such as:
*	Biological Engineering (biomedical engineering; biotechnology
and bioprocess engineering) 
*	Natural Resource Engineering (energy engineering; environmental
*	Fluids Engineering (fluid mechanics; molecular modelling and
*	Particle and Materials Engineering (complex materials; surfaces
and interfaces) 
*	Process Systems Engineering (methodologies; applications)
*	Reaction and Separation Engineering (reaction engineering and
catalyst technology; separation engineering and technology) 
High priority will be given to the overall originality and promise of
the candidate's work rather than the candidate's sub-area of
specialization within Chemical or Biological Engineering. Nevertheless,
KAUST is particularly interested in applicants whose research has
applications in the fields of water desalination, clean combustion and

An earned Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering or a related science or
engineering discipline, evidence of the ability to pursue a program of
research, and a strong commitment to graduate teaching are required.
Applicants should have at least one year of postdoctoral research
experience. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at
the graduate level and to build and lead a team of graduate students in
Master's and PhD research. 

Applications, including a curriculum vita, brief statements of research
and teaching interests, and the names and contact details of at least 3
referees, should be sent to the Search Committee by electronic mail to

. Please note that the Search Committee may also appoint additional
referees at its discretion. The review of applications will begin
immediately, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit
applications as soon as possible; however, applications will continue to
be accepted until December 2009, or until all 10 available positions
have been filled. 

In 2008 and 2009, as part of an Academic Excellence Alliance agreement
between KAUST and Imperial College London, the KAUST faculty search will
be conducted by a committee consisting of professors from the Faculty of
Engineering at Imperial College London. This committee will select the
top applicants and nominate them for faculty positions at KAUST.
However, KAUST will be responsible for actual recruiting decisions,
appointment offers, and explanations of employment benefits. The
recruited faculty will be employed by KAUST, not by Imperial. Faculty
members recruited by KAUST before September 2009 will be hosted in
Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London as Academic Visitors
until KAUST opens in September 2009. At Imperial, these Academic
Visitors will conduct research with Imperial staff and may occasionally
teach courses.
