KAUST advances science and technology through distinctive and collaborative research integrated with graduate education. Through multidisciplinary, state-of-the-art facilities and technical expertise, we are a catalyst for innovation, economic development, and social prosperity in Saudi Arabia and the world.
We exist for the pursuit and advancement of scientific knowledge and its broad dissemination and benevolent application. We strive to enhance the welfare of society with a special focus on four areas of global significance – food, water, energy and the environment.
We seek creative and independent scientists with demonstrated expertise in one of our four Research Pillars. Colleagues are invited to join our faculty at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level.
Our faculty offer attractive Fellowships and unparalleled research facilities to attract the best available researchers globally.
KAUST plans to offer short courses, cross-divisional education, and a M.Sc. thesis in Climate, Livability, and Sustainability Science.
Our coordinated approach will expose students to the fundamentals of sustainability, climate change, and the cross-sectoral impacts of these — not only enhancing our graduates intellectually, but also producing globally engaged and informed citizens.
