Development and integration of efficient multi functional and multi color hybrid optical nano-emitters.
The CNRS International-NTU-Thales Research Alliance (CINTRA) at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is looking for a motivated and hard-working researcher (chemist or physicist) to develop and perform synthesis of colloidal semiconductor, metallic and hybrid nanocrystals and quantum dots.
The candidate will join a small team whose mission is to develop novel nanomaterials and structures for the integration of nanophotonics and nanoelectronics.
The successful candidate will perform syntheses of colloidal quantum dots and advanced hybrid nanocrystals to be employed by other scientists in Singapore and France. The candidate will have the opportunity to work on both scientific as well as technology development projects and his/ her mission would be to synthesize high quality nanocrystals and quantum dots for their successful implementation on optoelectronic devices.
Part of the tasks will involve regular synthesis of standard QD materials, thus the candidate should have very high organization and attention-to-detail skills for high reproducibility material production. At the same time she/ he will also seek to optimize the properties of QDs based on feedback received by other group members and French collaborators thus should also be creative and positive in taking new challenges.
The successful candidate will be involved in undergraduate and graduate student supervision.
The candidate will be involved in a number of projects running in our group and will be collaborating with a research team in France. Therefore the candidate is expected to have excellent communication and organization skills and strong team spirit. At a technical level the candidate should have strong background on inorganic chemistry and material science and demonstrated expertise in the use of high vacuum techniques for colloidal (wet) chemistry. Some experience in optical characterization of colloidal quantum dots and in working with optical devices will be preferable. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in a related field as described above.
The position is initially for one year with possibility for further extension (up to 3 years and more), however the contract will be renewed on an annual basis provided satisfactory performance.
- The candidate should have strong background on inorganic and organic chemistry and material science and demonstrated expertise in the use of high vacuum techniques for colloidal (wet) chemistry.
- PhD or Extensive Experience in Chemistry, Material Science, Colloidal nanocrystal synthesis.
- Some experience in optical characterization of colloidal quantum dots and in working with optical devices will be preferable.
Interested applicants should send a single .pdf document, including a cover letter to show your capability to undertake the job and a full CV (with the names with contacts of 2-3 character referees, including email addresses) to Dr Dinh Xuan Quyen (Principal Investigator): firstname.lastname@example.org.
We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
