Research Positions at Prof. Xufeng Kou's research group, SIST


Professor Xufeng Kou’s research group is seeking a research associate in the areas of semiconductor/spintronics physics and device. The successful candidate will work independently on novel projects including: (1) MBE growth of novel semiconductor materials; (2) Exploration of emerging physics on electron/spin/magnetism; (3) Design of low-power, high-speed, non-volatile devices. In addition, building and maintaining laboratory facilities and infrastructure is an important part of the job.

The position is available immediately for one year, with extension as an option based on productivity and funding. The position will report to Dr Xufeng Kou.


Specific Responsibilities

The responsibilities include independent research, collaboration with other group members, and supervision of junior students.


A PhD in electrical engineering, physics, or materials science. Hands-on, in-depth experience with semiconductor physics, device fabrication and device characterization is required. We are especially seeking candidates with rich experience of MBE growth and/or low-temperature /high-field measurement. Experience and knowledge of III-V high-speed device and spintronic (e.g spin-orbit coupling, spin Hall effect, STT-RAM) will be a huge plus. Hands-on experience with integrated circuit is also highly desirable.


Qualified applicants are invited to submit (all in English) a resume, research statement (describing research experience and career plan), copies of two representative publications, and two letters of reference to: We provide very competitive salary and benefits for this post.
