Research Summary

POST-DOC Position Currently Available

I would like to hire a postdoctoral researcher with experience applying Density Functional Theory (DFT) to the design of materials. The position would be 70% DFT modeling and 30% experimental measurements. It is not necessary for the applicant to be experienced in the laboratory but he/she should be willing to learn some experimental techniques. The position is available now. Please contact me asap by email: robert_simpson@sutd.edu.sg.
Fully funded PhD Scholarships are available for 2016
The projects will involve applied and theoretical research into materials for nano-photonics and nanoscale electronics.
