Minimum level
The School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering is seeking a Research Engineer (RE) passionate about spearheading the discovery of new physics in emerging materials, especially pertaining to the development of compact, high-brightness X-ray sources. In particular, the RE will explore techniques to miniaturize particle accelerators in free-electron-driven X-ray sources. Our objective is to realize features currently available only in large scale X-ray facilities in a table-top setup. Compact, high quality X-ray sources have potential applications in industrial inspection, medical imaging and treatment, forensics, security inspection, and would also have a transformative impact on fundamental science (where X-rays have been responsible for >25 Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry and Physiology/Medicine). Our research takes place at the boundary of quantum optics, particle waveshaping and nanomaterials. Read more about our work at our group website

Job Responsibilities
  • Discover new phenomena and develop new applications pertaining to the miniaturization of particle accelerators and X-ray sources
  • Assist in fundamental research on electron-photon interactions in emerging materials and nanostructures
  • Publish in world-class journals on topics related to nanophotonics and quantum physics
  • Assist in supervision of undergraduate students

Job Requirements
  • Bachelor's or Master's in physics, engineering, mathematics or related field
  • Excellent English verbal/written communication skills
  • Strong academic credentials and keenness to keep learning
  • Passion for fundamental research and discovering new physics
  • Highly productive and self-motivated in both independent work as well as teamwork
  • Prior research experience on related topics is a bonus

We regret only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
