The Chemical Kinetics & Laser Sensors Laboratory provides excellent opportunities for students and post-docs to work on unique experimental facilities and perform outstanding research. Our laboratory has strong collaborations with universities in the US and Europe. 


If you are interested in pursuing a PhD, please send your CV and a summary of your research interests to Professor Aamir Farooq: email: aamir.farooq@kaust.edu.sa. 


Prospective MS students are encouraged to apply directly to the University. For further information, please visit KAUST Admissions. Once selected, you have the opportunity to join our laboratory for directed research or MS thesis. 


We are currently looking to hire two post-doctoral fellows:


Development of sensitive absorption diagnostics based on cavity-enhanced multi-heterodyne spectroscopy in the mid-infrared.

Duration 1 year, extendible to 3 years. We are looking for applicants with a PhD degree and strong background in one or more of these areas: optical diagnostics / laser-based sensors / non-linear optical methods / cavity-enhanced spectroscopy / frequency-comb spectroscopy. For any question or for application, please contact Prof. Aamir Farooq, aamir.farooq@kaust.edu.sa

 

Experimental and modelling study of heterogeneous chemistry for catalyst-based exhaust after-treatment systems.

Duration 1 year, extendible to 3 years. We are looking for applicants with a PhD degree and strong background in one or more of these areas: experimental methods for heterogeneous chemistry / modelling of gas-solid reactions / synthesis of catalytic materials / design of after-treatment systems. For any question or for application, please contact Prof. Aamir Farooq, aamir.farooq@kaust.edu.sa​
