Job Description

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Physics, Material Science, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, or related disciplines and strong background in low-temperature device physics. The successful candidate will be working in state-of-the-art research environment and receive internationally competitive salary packages.
Recently, our group has developed a novel method to induce magnetism in 2D in an otherwise nonmagnetic 2D semiconductor such as black phosphorus. We seek talented and highly motivated candidates to contribute to our ongoing efforts. Specifically, the postdoctoral researchers are expected to study the mechanism of the magnetic ordering in detail, engineer its magnetic properties further and use it in magnetic device applications.


The successful candidate has responsibilities of supporting PhD students in their research and doing highly collaborative research. They should have experiences in:

  1. Design and development of magnetic tunnel junction or spin valve.
  2. Nano fabrication (e.g., stacking of van der Waals heterostructures, e-beam lithography, nano deposition) in clean room.
  3. Low-temperature electrical characterization of superconductors/semiconductors

Covid-19 Message

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.
