Jobs and Studentships

The Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies (CDPT) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, recently secured substantial research projects on proof-of-principle demonstrations of fibre-integrated quantum devices for photon generation, switching, manipulation and detection and quantum and topological nanophotonics. The Centre, a part of The Photonics Institute at NTU, is a cluster of high-end nanophotonics laboratories and nano- prototyping and characterization cleanroom, develops new photonic technologies with outlook of 15+ years. In 2017 NTU was placed 11th in the world and the best in Asia in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings. It was again placed the world’s best young university (under 50 years old) by QS for the fourth consecutive year in 2017. In addition, NTU was named the world’s fastest rising young university by Times Higher Education in 2015. Working at CDPT provides exceptional personal development opportunities in a vibrant international environment.

To undertake the projects we offer PhD scholarships in the following subjects:

  • Quantum optics and quantum devices
  • Quantum and topological nanophotonics & metamaterials
  • Photonic nanomaterials, nanodevices and nanofabrication

Enquiries on the application shall be submitted to or to the CDPT Research Manager​.

Please note: Your interest in CDPT is very important to our Centre. Be reassured that your application will be reviewed and given full consideration. Due to the high number of requests, communication will be initiated with only few selected candidates.​​​
