Default Recruitment process for an assistant professor in KFUPM

I had an interview in December 2016 for Assistant Professor In Civil Engineering in kfupm University in Saudi Arabia and the search committee told me they will contact me soon. Until now no responses, and I have sent them mail to know the status of my candidature but no answer also. I would be glad if somenone can inform me in the time to wait for an answer after an interview? also on the salary and package offered?
Thanks.

Time in the Saudi context is different from in other parts of the world. Nothing is immediate or urgent.

Thank you scot47 for response.
According to your experience with Kfump and Saudi, Do I have to wait again or not? because I already have other opportunities in Canada and an interview with a Canadian university planned in a next month?

Saudi is full of Pakistani "muhajireen" dreaming of emigrating to Canada.


My advice is go directly to Canada. At least after a few years you can become a citizen,. that will not happen in KSA.

Are you doing this for your career or for religious reasons ?

For religious reasons firstly and career also (I think KFUMP is a good University that encourages the research and gives funding especially for the engineering)

If your priority is to do to Haj and Umra you can do that as a pilgrim. Why should you expect the Saudi Government to give you a job to make it easier for you ?
