The Computer Science program in the Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering Division 
( at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) invites 
applications for multiple faculty positions at all levels (Full, Associate, and Assistant Professor) in the 
area of Computer Systems. All relevant research subareas will be considered, including, but not limited to: 
Databases and Big Data, Systems for Machine Learning and AI, Distributed Systems, Computer Architecture. 

High priority will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work rather than the 
candidate’s sub-area of specialization within Systems. An earned PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, 
Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, or a related field, and strong publication record in top-tier conferences 
and journals, are required. Senior candidates must have demonstrated strong leadership in the field. Women are 
strongly encouraged to apply. A successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate level 
(there is no undergraduate program at a KAUST), and to build and lead a research group of postdoctoral fellows 
and graduate students. Faculty members enjoy generous secure research funding from KAUST and have opportunities 
for additional funding through several KAUST provided sources and through industry collaborations.
