Nanyang Technological University (NTU) invites applications for a position of Assistant Professor/Associate Professor (Tenure-track) in “High-frequency III-Nitride Growth, Device design and Fabrication”.

We are seeking a candidate who will develop, lead and sustain research of an international standard in “High-frequency III-Nitride Growth, Device design and Fabrication”. The candidate should possess strong experimental and theoretical expertise in III-Nitride growth and/or device design and fabrication for devices (e.g. HEMTs, MISHEMTs, FinFETs etc.) for high- frequency applications.

This position will be held at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Areas and priorities that we wish to develop and support through this appointment include:

  • III-Nitride epitaxial growth on various substrates (Si, SiC, Sapphire etc.) using MOCVD.
  • III-Nitride epitaxial wafer characterisation techniques (e.g. Hall, XRD, PL etc).
  • Design of advanced III-Nitride device structures particularly for high-frequency (microwave and millimeter-wave) applications.
  • Semiconductor wafer fabrication processes including III-V compound semiconductor and/or CMOS-compatible wafer fabrication techniques.
  • Electrical characterisation of devices including DC and RF techniques (e.g. semiconductor parameter analyser, pulsed I-V, small signal and large signal RF measurements, etc.)


  • Develop and lead an innovative research programme of international quality.
  • Publish high impact papers in reputable peer-reviewed journals.
  • Secure competitive research grants.
  • Give talks at international conferences and supervise research personnel.
