The Electrical Engineering (EE) Program at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) invites applications for faculty positions at all ranks (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professors) beginning in the fall of 2013.

The EE program currently has 13 full time faculty members and is recognized for its vibrant research programs and collaborative environment. EE research is strongly supported by KAUST’s international research collaboration networks and KAUST’s advanced research facilities, including the Nanofabrication, Imaging, and Characterization Lab and the Supercomputing Core Facilities. More information about the EE academic programs and research activities are available at http://ee.kaust.edu.sa.

The disciplines of EE critically support KAUST’s interdisciplinary research initiatives in water, food, energy, and the environment, especially by advancing green technology, energy efficient computers, and communication systems through the use of novel nano, bio, info, and opto device technologies. To accelerate these initiatives, the EE Program seeks to work with other Programs and Centers within KAUST to aggressively strengthen research expertise in these integrative areas. There are particularly compelling opportunities to further develop and strengthen synergies with the Computational Bioscience Research Center. Priority will be given to candidates with research interests in areas that may enhance and complement the aforementioned center, including, but not limited to:

Data and Simulations with emphasis on application of signal processing and information theory to bioinformatics and biological data analysis

All candidates should have the ability to pursue a high impact research program and have a commitment to teaching at the graduate level.
