Research Fellow Positions on Nanoelectronics and Micro/Nano Fluid Dynamics, Singapore

Two Research Fellow positions (postdoctoral position) are available in
the Division of Physics and Applied Physics, School of Physical and
Mathematical Sciences at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

The positions are in the interdisciplinary field of Nanoelectronics
and Micro/Nano Fluid Mechanics and are available for immediate

Position 1:
We are looking preferably for a researcher holding a PhD in
Electronics, Electrical Engineering, or Nanoelectronics. Her/His task
will be the development of thin-film resistance sensors using
lithographic techniques and the designing of fast constant current
feedback electronic circuitries. The Research Fellow will develop this
novel device for probing the fluid mechanics present in ultrasonic
cleaning. This position is initially available for 12 month and
renewal will be based mutual agreements. Good communication skills in
English, experiences in the clean-room/nanofabrication, and the design
of analog circuitry are required. Additional knowledge in the fields
of acoustics, fluid-mechanics, or physics is a plus. If interested,
please send your CV and names/contacts of two references to Dr. Tom Wu.

Position 2:
The second position should be filled with a Researcher holding a PhD
in Physics, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering. The candidate should
have experience in experimental research in fluid mechanics and
ideally in acoustics, too. In this 36 month research project she/he
will study the wall shear stress on a microscopic level with the help
of novel sensor developed in-house. For the calibration of the sensor
some experience in operating pulsed lasers and high-speed photography
equipment is desired. Although, the research project is focused on the
experimental side, candidates with a background in numerical
simulations (boundary element method or finite-element method) are
favorably considered. Good communication skill in English and a
curious character are necessary to successfully complete this
challenging interdisciplinary research project. If interested, please
send your CV and names/contacts of two references to Dr. Claus-Dieter Ohl.
