Marine engineer KAUST Thuwal Jeddah Makkah Region. Ahmad.Monshi@kaust.edu.sa. The Coastal and Marine Resources Core Lab specializes in marine operations, oceanographic instrumentation and wet lab experimentation. It features equipment and manpower support for scientific expeditions including diving, field sampling and instrument deployment.
This lab operates and maintains small boats and a research vessel for oceanographic research and modern wet lab facilities for aquarium based experiments. We also offer access to engineering and focused technical services to the scientists and research project teams for novel R&D activities.
The lab is a complete marine station with facilities and personnel strategically located on the KAUST academic campus. This enables lab users to transition between labs and academic offices in a matter of minute.
As a result of a recent promotion we now have a need for a Marine Electrical Engineer to perform and supervise technical tasks associated with the design, construction, operation and maintenance of electronic and scientific equipment, oceanographic research instruments, undersea systems and vehicles. You will also be required to Serve as a seagoing instrumentation engineer on research vessels.
– Will have a multidisciplinary role, working closely with peers and be a part of a team that is responsible for designing, developing, installing, managing and maintaining instrumentation, electromechanical systems, other laboratory and on-site scientific research tools and equipment, undersea systems and vehicles, gauges, sensors, etc.
– Will interact with scientific and technical colleagues to foster research ideas and develop research and experimental setups.
– Will develop portions of electronic or mechanical systems with supervision that is mainly focused at reviewing progress and milestone benchmarks.
– Will conduct hardware and software development, including design, prototype, test, production and deployment of marine and undersea systems and vehicles.
– Will take responsibility for projects encompassing the entire project life-cycle. Is able and will accept to go to sea and work for extended periods of time (between 1–2 months per year with individual legs between 2-4 weeks) as part of oceanographic research cruises, including participating in the activities on deck and in labs, carrying heavy gear and loading and unloading of the RV; and Is highly motivated, proactive, well organized and results oriented.
– Ability to devise novel approaches to problems, and prepare or modify drawings, specifications, calculations, charts and graphs, and monitor work for compliance to applicable codes, accepted engineering practices and standards.
– Excellent Skills in Computer Aided Design (CAD), Advanced Process Control (APC), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).
– Demonstrated track experience record and accomplishment in instrumentation logic design and engineering techniques mainly related to marine systems and undersea vehicles in the areas of: analog circuits, digital circuits, circuit board, semiconductors, microcontrollers, electromagnetics, microprocessor, data communication, troubleshooting, maintenance and repair. – Thorough understanding of the competence of research tools and equipment in marine environment and the constraints of ocean-based equipment.
Non-Technical Skills or Attributes
– Able to work independently and as part of a multi-cultural research team;
– A master’s degree in electrical engineering.
– EE bachelor degree holders will also be considered.
– A minimum of 5 years of related work experience.
