Job Description

We are seeking an experienced Research Fellow (a Ph.D. degree is required) who can design, fabricate, and carry out the ultrathin metasurface textiles as well as the growth of excitonic materials (e.g. TMDCs, 2D perovskite).

This job aims to investigate exotic light-matter interactions of excitonic materials on metasurface. The work involves the design and fabrication of metasurface textiles, growth of excitonic materials and assembly of the heterostructures comprising the two.

Optical spectroscopy, structural characterization and computational simulation methods would be utilized to reveal the interplay between exciton and metasurface. Based on the comprehensive understanding of exciton-metasurface interactions, the heterostructure can be scaled up for advanced photonic devices.


  • Possess a PhD degree from a recognised University/Institute.
  • Deep understandings of solid-state physics is necessary. 
  • Relevant knowledge in solid state physics, optics, and metasurface. 
  • Rich experience in optical spectroscopy, e.g. PL, Raman, reflectance and transmittance, PLE, time-resolved PL. 
  • Rich experience in quantum optics, e.g. single-photon emission, second-order correlation function. 
  • Rich experience in structural fabrication and characterization processes, be familiar with experimental tools such as AFM, SEM, EBL, laser writer, XRD, etc.
  • Rich experience in wet chemical synthesis and 2D material growth is an advantage.  
  • Candidates should have a strong publication record in high impact (IF>10) journals in the field of exciton physics, 2D materials and quantum optics. 
  • Excellent written and spoken communication especially in writing and presentation skills. 
  • Possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills to work with various stakeholders.
  • Meticulous, able to work well under pressure and commitment to meet tight deadlines
  • Open to fixed-term contract.
