Postdoctoral Fellowship in Organic Bioelectronics

King Abdullah University of Science & Technology

Saudi Arabia



We are currently seeking a highly motivated, independent but team-oriented postdoctoral fellow to join the Organic Bioelectronics Lab of Prof. Sahika Inal at Biological and Engineering and Environmental Division of KAUST. Our own biology and electrical characterization laboratories are equipped with instrumentation enabling the integration of cells with home-made electronic devices and their subsequent electrical characterization. Tools to process polymer solutions into a variety of forms (electrospinner, spin coater, inkjet printer) and integrated set-ups for electrochemical characterization of materials/devices are present in our lab. We have full access to the core lab facilities of KAUST offering cutting-edge instrumentations for material characterization, extensive facilities of micro and nanofabrication and cell and molecular biology. 

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is an international graduate-level, merit-based research university dedicated to advancing scientific and technological education and research, acting as a catalyst for innovation, economic development, and social prosperity in the region and the world. Our research strives to enhance the welfare of society with a special focus on four areas of global significance – food, water, energy, and the environment. Based near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, KAUST has attracted top-notch faculty and staff from all over the world, with more than 80 nations represented on campus. 



The ideal candidate must have completed a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Physical/Chemical Engineering, Physics or a related field with a focus on organic electronics and/or field effect transistors. The following are also desired:

  • Creative and self-motivated personality 
  • Excellent problem-solving skills
  • Excellent communication skills in English
  • High-level written and oral communication skills with the ability to represent the research team at national and international conferences.
  • A record of publications in high quality, peer-reviewed journals

The project includes: 

• characterization of a novel class of organic electronic materials in electrolyte gated transistors 

• investigating the electrolyte/organic semiconductor interface 

• optimizing material properties/device geometry for high-performance transistors 

• design and fabrication of OECTs for biosensing applications
