The Computer, Electrical, and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering Division at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) invites applications for faculty positions at all levels (Full, Associate, and Assistant Professor) in the following areas of Computer Science:
- Data Mining and analytics with emphasis on Big Data
- Machine Learning with emphasis on Deep Learning
- Artificial intelligence
- Computer Systems and Emerging Architectures (GPU’s, FPGA’s, etc)
- High-performance computing
- Computer security
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 Computer Science. An earned PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or a related field, and strong publication record in top-tier conferences and journals, are required. Senior candidates must have demonstrated strong leadership in the field. Women are strongly encouraged to apply. Also of particular interest are interdisciplinary candidates who can open new areas of investigation. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate level and to build and lead a research group of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. Faculty members enjoy secure research funding from KAUST and have opportunities for additional funding through several KAUST provided sources and through industry collaborations.
KAUST is an international, graduate-only research university, located on the shores of the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia. KAUST offers superb research facilities, including the 5 Petaflop/s Shaheen-2 supercomputer and a large-scale virtual reality installation; generous assured research funding; and internationally competitive salaries. KAUST attracts top international faculty, scientists, engineers and students to conduct curiosity-driven and goal-oriented research to address the world’s pressing scientific and technological challenges.
