Job Description

Post Doctoral Fellow


2. Job Purpose

Position Overview

A postdoctoral research opportunity is available at the Department of Physics at Khalifa University for outstanding researchers to apply state-of-the-art electronics, organic electronics, wearable energy generators and biodegradable materials, for the development of wearable electronics and novel biomedical devices for e-skin and smart patch applications.

The job purpose is to provide high quality research support and undertake internationally competitive research aimed at publication thereby contributing to the academic and research mission of the University.  

Since the Postdoctoral, experience is transitional to becoming an independent researcher or faculty member, the Postdoctoral tries their best to acquire the varied skills necessary to advance their career with guidance from the advisor. These skills include, but are not limited to, the ability to present research plans and findings in a convincing style, both in oral and written modes of communication, the ability to understand research group management and supervision of others, the ability to establish contacts and network with colleagues pursuing a similar research agenda, the ability to organize and teach a class or a course if more inclined towards a teaching career.
