A University representative will meet you upon arrival at King Abdulaziz International Airport to guide you through your first day. You will be shepherded through the administrative steps for new arrivals up until you receive the key to your new home at KAUST.

• The policies and procedures of the University.

In addition to the HR orientation, several postdoc-specific orientation sessions are offered:

• Postdoc support services;
• Intellectual property;
• Discover the KAUST Library.
