- Developing electronic hardware and software interface for performing low level (≤fA) current measurement and data acquisition (DAQ). This includes the design and evaluation of op-amp analog circuits, drafting and updating PCB designs and electronic schematics (in EAGLE or its equivalent).
Minimum Job Requirements
- A Bachelor/Masters/PhD degree in a relevant major, such as Physics/Electrical and Computer Engineering/Mechanical Engineering.
Other Relevant Characteristics
Candidates with any of the following characteristics will also be highly desired:
- A multidisciplinary background with excellent practical experimental and engineering skills.
- Experience or working knowledge in any of the following aspects: FPGA based control, Direct Digital Synthesizer, high voltage (kV) electronics, and low-noise instrumentation.
- Experience in software development for graphical user interface to perform instrumentation control (LabVIEW, C/C++).
- Experience with Electron beam or Ion beam microscopy, and/or Electron Beam or Ion Beam Induced Charge or Current measurement techniques (EBIC, EBAC or IBIC).
- Familiarity with state-of-the-art simulation platforms such as TCAD, MATLAB/Simulink, PSIM and PLECS for semiconductor device characterisation.
- Familiarity with charged particle optics, and ray tracing simulation (e.g. SIMION, COMSOL, Particle Tracer).
- CAD mechanical design and assembly (e.g. SOLIDWORKS).
- Able to thrive in a dynamic, multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary research team.
- Able to work independently by conducting experiments alone or in teams when required.
- Able to develop requirement specifications and maintain technical documentation.
- Strong verbal and written technical communication skills in English for multidisciplinary collaboration in a hybrid physical/virtual work environment (i.e. face to face and via collaboration platforms such as Microsoft Teams).
At NUS, the health and safety of our staff and students are one of our utmost priorities, and COVID-vaccination supports our commitment to ensure the safety of our community and to make NUS as safe and welcoming as possible. Many of our roles require a significant amount of physical interactions with students/staff/public members. Even for job roles that may be performed remotely, there will be instances where on-campus presence is required.
Taking into consideration the health and well-being of our staff and students and to better protect everyone in the campus, applicants are strongly encouraged to have themselves fully COVID-19 vaccinated to secure successful employment with NUS.
