About University

The newly-established Khalifa University of Science and Technology combines The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research and The Petroleum Institute into one world-class, research-intensive institution, seamlessly integrating research and education to produce world leaders and critical thinkers in applied science and engineering. Khalifa University of Science and Technology endeavors to be a leader among research intensive universities of the 21st century, while catalyzing the growth of Abu Dhabi and the UAE’s rapidly developing knowledge economy.      

Brief Description

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.

Detailed Description

The job will be developed in the framework of the internally funded project “Development of smart glass with self-cleaning and infrared-shielding properties for energy-efficient buildings”. The post-doc is expected to provide high quality research and support the principal investigator in writing reports, articles and patents and supervising students.

The post-doctoral researcher will be preparing multilayered film deposited on glass operating in the clean rooms of Khalifa University (Masdar Campus). He/she will characterize the same films by using a number of techniques ranging from electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy to spectroscopic techniques. Finally he/she will characterize the materials in terms of superhydrophilic and self-cleaning properties and will test them in the abatement of VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). He/she will work at the preparation of reports, drafts of papers and patents.
