Post-Doctoral Fellow in Chemical Kinetics and Laser Sensors
KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology)
King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST, http://www.kaust.edu.sa) is an international graduate-level, merit-based research university dedicated to advancing scientific and technological education and research, acting as a catalyst for innovation, economic development and social prosperity in the region and the world. Our research strives to enhance the welfare of society with a special focus on four areas of global significance – food, water, energy and the environment. Based near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, KAUST has attracted top-notch faculty and staff from all over the world, with more than 80 nations represented on campus.
A postdoctoral position is available in the Chemical Kinetics and Laser Sensors Laboratory of the Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Candidates with experience in one or more of the following research areas are encouraged to apply:
(1) Heterogeneous chemistry
(2) Catalytic reactions
(3) Catalyst-based exhaust after-treatment systems
The work will be carried out collaboratively with the University of Sydney, and the post-doctoral fellow will be expected to spend some time in Sydney as well. Postdoctoral Fellowship is initially limited to one year. Depending on the performance, extension up to three years is possible.
Successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in a related field with experience in one or more of the aforementioned areas of research.
Contacts, application material and deadline
Interested applicants should send (i) a detailed CV, (ii) contacts of three references, (iii) three research articles to Prof. Aamir Farooq at email@example.com
The position will remain open until filled, but the candidate is expected to join the team as soon as possible.
The Clean Combustion Research Center (http://ccrc.kaust.edu.sa) conducts basic and applied research in the field of combustion. Topics of interest include: fuel formulation, oxy-fuel combustion, chemical kinetics, carbon capture, turbulent combustion, laser diagnostics, soot formation, sprays, nanoparticle synthesis, turbulent aerosols, and novel combustion concepts. The CCRC research program synergistically combines experimental and computational approaches.
The Chemical Kinetics and Laser Sensors Laboratory (http://kinetics.kaust.edu.sa) carries out research in the areas of energy, chemical kinetics, spectroscopy and laser diagnostics. We focus on the development of advanced experimental techniques and apply these to understand fundamental processes in traditional and renewable energy-conversion devices.
