Research Fellow (Plasmonics and Metamaterials)

Established in 1981, the SCHOOL OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING (EEE) is one of the founding Schools of the Nanyang Technological University. Built on a culture of excellence, the School is renowned for its high academic standards and strong tradition in research. To support teaching and cutting-edge research, EEE is host to 11 research centres and more than 50 laboratories, which are well-equipped with modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. With about 200 faculty members and an enrolment of more than 4,000, of which about 1,300 are graduate students, it is one of the largest EEE schools in the world.

An opening for a Research Fellow (postdoc) position is available from August 2015 in the group of Assistant Prof. Yu Luo in the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University , to work in the field of plasmonics and metamaterials. This group focuses on the design and applications of metamaterials at microwave and optical frequencies, the study of quantum effects in mesoscopic plasmonic systems, and Nonlinear phenomenon in active metamaterials. The successful candidate will be involved in the theoretical study of quantum effects in plasmonics and the design of feasible plasmonic systems to enhance the nonlinear effects.


  • The candidate should have a PhD degree in Electronic Engineering, Physics, Optical Engineering or related fields.
  • The ideal candidate should also have extensive experience in some or most of these categories: nonlinear optics, nonlocal and quantum plasmonics, graphene and semiconductor optics, transformation optics, Spoof plasmonics, optical mematerials and photonic crystals.
  • Strong self-motivation and excellent communication skills are essential.
  • At least 1-2 years of related experience. Distinguished candidate without postdoc experience may also be considerered.
