Fixed Term Contract 1 year, full-time, expected extension up to 3 years pending satisfaction of milestones.
The Photonics Laboratory (https: // photonics.kaust.edu.sa) of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) invites applications for a post-doctoral position in the area of fiber optic sensing. The Photonics Laboratory aims at delivering compact and energy-saving integrated laser-diode based devices and solutions for applications requiring light spanning the ultraviolet to the visible and near-infrared regime. A plethora of practical laser-based solutions are conceived, and proof-of-concept models built for data collection and testing of a new class of innovative multi-function optoelectronic devices and optical fiber systems.
We are looking for a researcher who has completed Ph.D. in the past five years, or will complete Ph.D. soon, and wish to bootstrap career, embracing the unique opportunity of participating in the shaping of such a challenging and innovative research theme, as well as contributing to the ambitious research agenda of the Photonics Laboratory, supported by a very substantial funding landscape.
Successful candidates will be given excellent conditions for the development of their research skills, in terms of working conditions, mentoring and laboratory facilities.
The main research topics this opening is calling for are aligned with the research priorities of the Photonics Laboratory:
Distributed fiber optic sensing, including distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) and distributed temperature sensing (DTS).
Single-point and quasi-distributed fiber optic sensing.
Fiber optic sensing for the oil and gas industry.
Fiber optic sensing for structural health monitoring.
The candidates will work closely with Prof. Boon S. Ooi and his team members
(https: // cemse.kaust.edu.sa/people/person/boon-ooi), interacting closely as well with other members of the Photonics Laboratory (https: // photonics.kaust.edu.sa). There are expected to do high-quality research, participate actively to projects, help mentor students and publish results in the most selective venues. Good communication and presentation skills are a must. English is the working language of this international laboratory.
