Candidates are invited to apply for a position as a Lecturer in the English Language Department. Located in Dhahran, on the Arabian Gulf, KFUPM is an English-medium university of science, technology, and business.

The ELD also teaches a course called Career Essentials. It aims to give students nearing graduation additional preparation for their professional lives in three key areas: interviewing skills, corporate culture, and creative problem solving.

ELD faculty teach four classes per day, three days per week and have five office hours per week.

The ELD expects to recruit new male and female faculty for the start of the autumn semester in August 2024.
