Research Associate



Project Description:

Incorporating QD-HYPS (QD-containing light-emitting HYbrid metal/ polymer nano-Systems) nano-sources into photonic integrated circuits (PICs) made of optical waveguides.



The CNRS International-NTU-Thales Research Alliance (CINTRA) at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is looking for a motivated and hard-working researcher (physicist) to design, fabricate and characterize  waveguides for hybrid quantum dot based hybrid nano-emitters.


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 design, fabricating and testing two kinds of waveguide structures: dielectric waveguides and Silicon on insulator (SOI) waveguides together with the integration of QD-HYPS with these two waveguide structures.  The candidate will have the opportunity to work on both scientific as well as technology development projects.

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.


The position is initially for one year with possibility for further extension, however the contract will be renewed on an annual basis provided satisfactory performance.

The candidate should have :

  • A Master degree
  • Solid background on physics and material science and demonstrated expertise in design and testing waveguide structures.

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).
