Nanyang Technological University

Research Fellow (Novel Photonic Materials)

Position Description:

We are hiring a research fellow to develop novel materials to be used for light sources can be extended for specialty fibres. Photonic materials to be developed, for example, are silica glass doped with nanoparticles, rare-earth, transition metal and/or non-silicate compounds to demonstrate efficient routes for light sources in the forms of films and/or optical fibre. The candidate is expected to develop a process to fabricate those photonic materials in the form of optical fibres.

Our labs are equipped with excellent fabrication facility for films and specialty optical fibres, which include sol-gel fabrication facility, sputtering machine, state-of-the art Modified Chemical Vapour Deposition (MCVD) and dual sided Fibre drawing tower. This research work will, from time to time, be reviewed by a fibre fabrication team at COFT to ensure compatibility of the materials to the silica fibre fabrication processes.   

A candidate with a background in a material and/or photonics area would be preferred. The successful applicants must demonstrate his/her diligence and execute the work to his/her best ability.

Job Requirements:

• PhD in relevant areas
• Should work in a cleanroom
• Will operate lasers
• Occasional admin. Works including documentation and lab equipment, maintenance

Application Procedure:

Interested applicants may send his/her CV and supporting information in PDF to:
