Postdoctoral Fellowship and Research Assistant positions available for micro-/nanofabrication and characterization of electromagnetic metamaterials (left-handed materials). 

 

Research Fellow (Postdoc, Micro/nanomanufacturing)

The Singapore Synchrotron Light Source (SSLS, <http://ssls.nus.edu.sg>) is a university-level Research Institute at the National University of Singapore (NUS). It is dedicated to generating and exploiting synchrotron radiation for research and development purposes and provides services for customers including research institutions, industry and institutions of public interest. At present, synchrotron radiation is produced by a compact 700 MeV electron storage ring with two 4.5 T superconducting dipoles. It covers a spectral range of 7 orders of magnitude from hard X-rays to the far infrared. Five beamlines and experimental stations are in operation comprising a micro/nanomanufacturing facility (LiMiNT), a phase contrast imaging and tomography beamline (PCIT), a soft X-ray facility for surface, interface, and nanostructure science (SINS), a hard X-ray facility for diffraction, absorption spectroscopy and fluorescence (XDD) and an infrared spectro/microscopy facility (ISMI). A further beamline for electron beam diagnostics will be ready in 2006.

SSLS is working in the rapidly expanding field of the development of new electromagnetic metamaterials (EM3). In the framework of an 18-month grant recently awarded by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), SSLS invites applications for the position of a

Research Fellow (Micro/nanomanufacturing)

who will contribute strongly

  • to the application of existing micro/nanomanufacturing and analytical techniques at LiMiNT and ISMI to the fabrication and characterization of EM3 and
  • to R&D into advanced micro/nanomanufacturing processes and analytical technologies necessary to support the innovative EM3.

The successful candidate will report to the Head Micro/Nanofabrication at SSLS and should possess

  • a PhD in Engineering, Physics, or a related discipline,
  • experience in micro/nanofabrication and process development, in particular, LIGA, as well as
  • good planning, organizational, interpersonal and communication skills and an excellent command of English.

In addition, knowledge of optics and electromagnetic theory would be helpful.

SSLS/NUS offers

  • an 18-month contract featuring a competitive remuneration package commensurate with qualification, skills and experience and
  • interesting and challenging work at the forefront of research among a young and highly motivated team.

Fresh graduates are encouraged to apply. The position will be open until a suitable candidate has accepted the job offer. The announcement will then be withdrawn from SSLS’ and NUS’ websites. Please send your application with a CV, resume of professional achievements, list of publications, copies of supporting documents (educational certificates, testimonials etc) and a recent photograph to:
