The School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences invites application for the position of Research Fellow.

Job Description

  • Prepare and process perovskite nanomaterials
  • Operate, optimize, troubleshoot and maintain femtosecond laser systems
  • Setup and align optical beamlines/setups for transient optical spectroscopy experiments
  • Conduct ultrafast optical spectroscopy studies and nonlinear spectroscopy of novel semiconductors and emergent semiconductor nanostructures
  • Perform data analysis and data interpretation of transient optical spectroscopy experiments independently
  • Assist the principal investigator with the writing of research papers
  • Assist the principal investigator with the writing of research grants
  • Assist the principal investigator in the supervision and mentoring of a small research team comprising of post-graduate students and undergraduate students.

Job Requirements

  • Candidate must possess at least an PhD Degree in Physics or Chemistry or Chemical Sciences
  • PhD candidates who are about to submit their thesis for examination or have submitted their thesis for defence are also welcome to apply.
  • In addition, candidate must possess at least a BSc 1st Class/2nd Class Upper Honours Degree in Physics or Chemistry or Chemical Sciences
  • Critical Requirement: Candidate must have a Minimum 3 Years of Research Experience in Ultrafast Lasers and Ultrafast Laser Spectroscopy of semiconductor materials.
  • Critical Requirement: Candidate must also have a Minimum 3 Years of Research Experience in the study of photophysics in semiconductor systems
  • Excellent knowledge in chemical synthesis, optics, photophysics of semiconductors, charge and quasi-particle dynamics, charge transfer mechanisms, femtosecond lasers, and femtosecond laser spectroscopy is essential
  • Excellent knowledge in the optical characterization of semiconductor materials (including nanostructures) which includes transient spectroscopy (pump-probe, time-resolved PL), and nonlinear spectroscopy (z-scan and multiphoton spectroscopy)
  • Evidence of prior experience with Physics modeling of charge trapping and phonon energy losses in semiconductor systems (i.e., the candidate’s previous works must be published in journals with an impact factor > 10)
  • A written and oral test of the candidate’s technical competency of femtosecond lasers, photophysics concepts, and ultrafast optical spectroscopy basics will be conducted during the interview

We regret only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
