The Red Sea Summer Program offers an opportunity for exceptionally qualified international undergraduate and post-graduate students to learn about Red Sea research from KAUST Faculty. Up to sixteen (16) students will be selected to participate in the summer workshop from international universities. The objective of this 3-week program is to present basic principles that are essential for understanding the Red Sea's unique environment from several aspects of marine and biological sciences, along with the state-of-art-technologies used to support KAUST's research in these areas.

There are occasionally openings in the Reef Ecology Lab for interns. Some of these positions are administered as part of the KAUST Visiting Student Research Program (VSRP). These internships are paid positions, including travel costs, housing on the KAUST campus, and a monthly stipend for a duration of 3 to 6 months.  These internships entail direct involvement in a research project, typically a distinct project closely aligned with existing work in our lab. Current undergraduate or MSc students, or recent graduates from these degrees, are invited to apply.
