KAUST requires a minimum TOEFL score of 79 on the IBT (Internet Based Test) or 6.0 on the IELTS. Students from all related backgrounds such as mechanical engineering or chemical engineering are welcome to apply. Due to COVID19, we are still accepting applications for Fall 2020.
N.B. A TOEFL or IELTS score is not required if the applicant received a degree from an accredited institution in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, or New Zealand. More information can be found at https://www.kaust.edu.sa/en/study/phd-program (for Ph.D.) and https://www.kaust.edu.sa/en/study/masters-program (for Master).
Candidates need to hold an earned Ph.D. (or be near completion) in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering or other related fields. Successful candidates are expected to be self-motivated and have a good publication record. Good command of English is necessary. The position holders will perform interdisciplinary researches, explore new research directions, disseminate results through publications and international conferences, and help supervise Ph.D. and Master students.
It is highly recommended that interns/visits should have sufficient length of stay (> 6 months) as it is very challenging to make significant achievements in short time. More information can be found at https://vsrp.kaust.edu.sa/.
