Amongst a number of targeted faculty hires, we are inviting applications from high-caliber candidates to build an innovative program that will bring new insights, solutions and focus to the area of coastal and marine protection, restoration and enhancement.

The coastal and marine environments of the Middle East are biodiversity hotspots, with the Red Sea in particular home to resilient ecosystems that function at the thresholds of tolerances observed elsewhere. Recognizing the inherent natural value of these environments, efforts that better understand and enhance their viability in the face of anticipated climate changes are required. KAUSTs unique setting on the shores of the Red Sea offer the potential to establish a “natural laboratory” that can serve the analysis, protection and restoration of coastal ecosystems around the world, particularly as its present-day conditions mirror future extreme conditions in other seas.

KAUST is seeking creative and ambitious faculty who can bridge multidisciplinary fields to address the diversity of issues that threaten the stability and security of coastal and marine ecosystems and channel this knowledge into tractable solutions. Potential areas of focus might include, but are not limited to: modeling and analysis of coastal and marine ecosystems; development of strategies for coastal and marine protection and restoration; conservation analysis and assessment; blue carbon and natural capital accounting; and habitat restoration.


KAUST is an international, graduate research university dedicated to advancing science and technology through interdisciplinary research, education, and innovation. KAUST attracts top faculty, scientists, engineers and students from around the world to conduct curiosity-driven and goal-oriented research to address the world’s most pressing scientific and technological challenges.

In Nature Index’s most recent Young Universities Rankings (2019), KAUST was #1 for institutions under 20 years of age and #6 for those under 50.   


Candidates should have a clear vision that prioritizes the protection, restoration and enhancement of the region’s precious marine ecosystems, with a focus on delivering scalable and implementable solutions. Experience in the design or application of ecosystem assessment and analysis tools, prior experience in restoration projects, or a combination of modeling and experimental experience will be viewed favorably. Candidates applying for a position at the Assistant Professor level should illustrate their potential for high-impact research. Candidates applying for Associate and Full Professor positions should possess a distinguished track record in research and a strong commitment to service and teaching at the graduate level.

Application Instructions

Applications should include a cover letter, a CV that includes a list of publications, and a concise statement of research vision and plans (maximum 2 pages) and teaching interests (1 page). The names and contact details of at least three (and up to five) referees is also requested. While the position is open rank, there is a preference for junior candidates. Applications will be evaluated as soon as they are received, with the position remaining open until it is filled.

The successful candidate will have a primary affiliation with the Marine Science program in addition to affiliation with the world-renowned Red Sea Research Center, allowing them to take advantage of KAUST’s unique access to the Red Sea.
