The KAUST Earth Science and Engineering (ErSE) program seek candidates at all ranks who will develop a world-class competitive research program on one or multiple of the following key areas:

The ErSE programs plays a pivotal role in supporting KAUST strategic initiatives: artificial intelligence, climate and livability, smart health and cybersecurity. Applications that would strengthen our footprint in one or more of these initiatives will be strongly considered.

Faculty of the ErSE program provide graduate education and conduct research covering a broad spectrum of geosciences. Research areas include (but are not limited to) applications of modern computational methods (including machine learning) to study geophysical problems associated with atmosphere and ocean circulation, crustal deformation and earthquakes, seismic wave phenomena, oil exploration, reservoir modeling and subsurface phenomena. In addition, ErSE faculty study geological processes related to active volcanism, and the geology of Saudi Arabia and the Red Sea. These areas are enhanced through close collaboration with some of the best geophysical and meteorological centers in the world, and through KAUST’s advanced central research facilities, including supercomputing and scientific visualization.

About the PSE Division and KAUST

The ErSE program belongs to the Physical Science and Engineering Division that comprises seven Degree Programs: Material Science and Engineering, Applied Physics, Earth Science and Engineering, Energy Resources and Petroleum Engineering, Chemical Science, Chemical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. These disciplines provide the foundation for our Division's quest to address some of the major challenges that we face in the world today, including those related to energy and the environment. Specifically, our faculty members and their research teams work on topics as diverse as: photovoltaics, super capacitors, porous materials for carbon capture and membranes, clean combustion, atmospheric modeling, new polymers and composite for smart materials and structures.

KAUST is an international graduate research university dedicated to advancing science and technology through interdisciplinary research, education, and innovation. Located in Saudi Arabia, on the western shores of the Red Sea, KAUST offers superb research facilities, generous baseline research funding, and internationally competitive salaries, together with unmatched living conditions for individuals and families.
