Saudi science uni in head hunt
A worldwide search is underway for a founding president for King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.
KAUST's academic model is structured around four research institutes, each of which will include research centers devoted to a particular set of issues or challenges that could benefit from concentrated scientific and technological study. The institutes include:
• The Resources, Energy and Environment Institute, with centres initially devoted to challenges in energy research; water and sustainable development.
• Biosciences and Engineering Institute, with centres focused on environmental bioscience, industrial biotechnology, agricultural biotechnology, health science and technology.
• Materials Science and Engineering Institute, with centres interested in problems relating to polymers, membranes and nanomaterials, catalytic chemistry and materials for high-stress environments.
• Applied Mathematics and Computer Science Institute, with centres focused on language software technologies and computational linguistics, IT innovation.
