KAUST is actively recruiting world-class students, faculty, and researchers who are committed to meeting the challenges of science through bold and collaborative inquiry, focusing on issues of regional and global significance. Beyond the well-established genomics, high throughput proteomics, bioinformatics and imaging laboratories, the BESE Division offers a technologically-advanced academic environment where a contemporary, high-complexity vision of biological mechanisms is shared and blended with other disciplines including mathematics, computational science, engineering, physics, and chemistry.
Access to the some of the most advanced equipment in the world for genomics, proteomics, epigenetics, advanced microscopy, structural biology, and nanofabrication studies, as well as access to the Red Sea, provides BESE faculty, students, and staff with unique opportunities. Combined with the University’s cutting-edge research projects in the experimental laboratories, researchers are able to address fundamental issues in biology and environmental sciences unconstrained by physical resources. KAUST offers a highly attractive and competitive compensation and benefits package that compares favorably with the world's best private and public institutions.
