The Weber group is part of a coordinated effort at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) towards the investigation of novel topological states of matter, and their harnessing for future low-power electronics and quantum information processing applications. Our group is embedded in a strongly collaborative network, both locally with the Centre for High Resolution Instruments for Science (CHRIS), and internationally, with the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Future Low Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET).

We are looking for high-caliber Research Fellows with interest/expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Quantum Information Science and Technology
  • Electronic characterization at cryogenic temperatures, including dilution refrigerators
  • Nanofabrication of quantum devices

Candidates experimental expertise in one or more of the following areas will be preferred:

  • Electronic measurement, both DC and RF
  • Low-temperature Scanning probe microscopy/spectroscopy (LT-STM/STS)
  • Ultra-high vacuum (UHV) science/technology
  • 2D and topological materials' crystal growth by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and/or chemical vapour deposition (CVD)

Job Scope/Responsibilities

The successful candidate will – depending on expertise – aid the PI in one of the following areas:

  • Installation / operation of a dilution refrigerator / electronic measurements at cryogenic temperatures

Internationally, the Weber group maintains close ties with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Future Low Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET) in Melbourne. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing joint and collaborative projects with FLEET, Australia. These may include research visits to complement the research work being done at NTU as well as meetings for scientific exchange.

The position comes with internationally competitive (and highly attractive) remuneration and benefit package, depending on experience. The duration of the contract is one year initially with option for renewal on a yearly basis, depending on satisfactory performance. 

Candidates are expected to assume duty any time from April 2017 onwards.

Job Requirements:

  • A Ph.D. degree in Physics is strongly preferred
  • Demonstrated strong experimental skill and research achievements
  • Demonstrated ability to publish in peer-reviewed journals preferred
  • Good verbal and written communication skills (including scientific writing)
  • Ability to work independently but also to work as part of a team
