Job Title: Research Fellow in Dye Chemistry

Location: Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore

Employment: one-year contract, renewable

Full/Part Time: Full-Time

What Your Job Will Be Like

Assistant Professor Liu Xiaogang’s group is looking for a research fellow to (1) computationally model fluorescent organic molecules, to reveal their detailed working mechanism and systematically summarize molecular design rules for developing novel dyes with tailored properties, and/or (2) synthesize organic dyes, characterize their spectral properties and biocompatibility, and conduct bioimaging/biosensing work based on these dyes.

The postdoctoral researcher will work as part of a team and interact closely with both computational chemists and experimentalists. Research topics include (but are not limited to) developing novel fluorophores with enhanced brightness and photostability for super-resolution fluorescence imaging and two-photon fluorescence imaging, and fluorescent probes with various functionalities.

This job is for a one-year period, with the option for further extension (for up to three years in total).

A highly competitive salary package will be offered.

Qualifications We Require

PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or a closely related field

Published evidence of scientific contributions

Qualifications We Desire

  • Experience with molecular dynamics simulations and/or ab initio calculations, particularly in DFT and TD-DFT
  • Experience with chemical synthesis, characterizations, and bioimaging work.
  • A strong passion for research
  • Good understanding of photochemistry, photophysics, and biochemistry
  • Good communication (both speaking and writing) skills and team spirit

Interested applicants should submit their full CV/resume, cover letter, a list of two references (to include reference names and contact information), and three recent papers that highlight your best-related research contributions. We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
