  • Postdoctoral Fellowships

    ​​Our University offers attractive fellowships and unparalleled research facilities to attract the best researchers from around the world.

    Postdoc position in Computational Biology/Bioinformatics 

    One postdoc position in computational biology/structural bioinformatics is available at the KAUST Catalysis Center, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia (http://www.kaust.edu.sa). The position is offered in the group of Prof. Luigi Cavallo (http://kc2l.kaust.edu.sa/Pages/Home.aspx).
    The applicant should have a good research expertise in modeling biological systems, with a specific emphasis on MD simulations, protein-protein docking, homology modeling. Since developing new methods will be part of the job, priority will be given to candidates with expertise in programming. The ability and interest to pursue challenging, interdisciplinary problems, and the ability to deliver proof-of-concept results are essential. Highly motivated individuals with a strong desire to work in applied research, who are comfortable working in strict collaboration with colleagues, and are willing to be directly responsible for their project are encouraged to apply.
    Applications should include a CV and contact information of at least two references and should be submitted by email to Prof. Luigi Cavallo at luigi.cavallo@kaust.edu.sa

    Postdoc position in Computational Heterogeneous Catalysis​ 

    One postdoc position in computational heterogeneous catalysis is available at the KAUST Catalysis Center, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia (http://www.kaust.edu.sa). The position is offered in the group of Prof. Luigi Cavallo (http://kc2l.kaust.edu.sa/Pages/Home.aspx). 
    The applicant should have a good research expertise in modeling reactivity on​ heterogeneous catalysts. Main focus will be on single site species grafted on an inert support, on reactivity promoted by metal organic frameworks, on catalysis promoted by nanoparticles, on electrocatalysis. The ability and interest to pursue challenging, interdisciplinary problems, and the ability to deliver proof-of-concept results are essential. Highly motivated individuals with a strong desire to work in applied research, who are comfortable working in strict collaboration with colleagues, and are willing to be directly responsible for their project are encouraged to apply.
    Applications should include a CV and contact information of at least two references and should be submitted by email to Prof. Luigi Cavallo at luigi.cavallo@kaust.edu.sa

    The aim of the researcher is to develop new catalysts based on deep understanding of the reaction mechanism.
