Job Description

The Department of Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications for an experienced Research Fellow with CMOS compatible and on-chip plasmonic/optoelectronic devices research.

The selected candidate is required to:

  • Take responsibility for electrical generation, detection, and manipulation, of plasmons, or one of them.
  • Be responsible for efficient plasmonic wave guiding and signal amplification to compensate for losses
  • Improve the efficiencies of the on-chip plasmonic devices by deepening scientific understanding of electron-plasmon coupling and plasmon confinement vs. propagation length by studying plasmonic materials and waveguide configurations.
  • Demonstrate CMOS compatible working devices with industry grade materials and work towards translation of our technology.
  • Provide a demo of a transceiver with high-speed transmission of data through plasmonic interconnects (in a lab-demonstrator) suitable for “beyond Moore” applications.
  • Expected to take responsibility for solving multi-disciplinary problems, including preparation of documentation and presentation of results of processing/testing to peers.


  • Possess a recognised PhD Degree in Materials/Physics/Optical Engineering or related field specialization in the design and fabrication of micro/nano optoelectronic devices. 
  • Knowledge and experiences in condensed matter physics, photonics and materials science, micro-nano fabrication technologies, on-chip light sources or high-speed detectors design, etc.
  • Minimum 2-year practical experiences in the design, fabrication and testing of on-chip plasmonic/optoelectronic devices.
  • Possess computer skills utilizing Lumerical FDTD, Comsol, etc.
  • Technical proposal writing and presentation skills.
  • Able to plan and organize well and adhere to deadlines.
  • Positive attitude – Able to work independently and as a team.
  • Meticulous, able to work well under pressure and commitment to meeting tight deadlines.
  • Open to fixed-term contract
