It doesn't look right to me. The email address is Gmail (elurecruitment@gmail.com) and the website address at the bottom (http://www.desatqu.org/), although the website itself looks authentic, isn't a Qassim University URL (http://www.qu.edu.sa/en/Pages/Home.aspx).

I think it is authentic. The paid summer break is short.

The ad mentions 30 days of paid vacation, which means the employer is likely a contracting company and not the university.

I don't think it is a contractor although I could be wrong. That ad looks just like one of the Saudi university direct hire ads and they are recruiting right now.

I would say that it is a contractor. Interesting that they are hiring males and females. Could be okay for a teaching couple. I have known foreigners m- especially converts - who actually liked Qassim

Indeed. They may be expected to cover completely.

So there are no issues with the fact that it's a Gmail address, then?

Probably a contractor. That COULD be an issue.
