Fundamentals of Light-Matter Interactions

Research Project Leader

CDPT is establishing a new research programme funded by the Ministry of Education Singapore. The programme aims to a direct observation of a toroidal transitions in atoms that will be a major breakthrough in the physics of light-matter interactions. Such observation will impact our understanding of atomic spectra, anapole electrodynamics, energy and information exchange at the molecular level and the origin of the cosmic dark matter. It will allow the development of new schemes for precision measurements, spectroscopies and imaging techniques such as NMR. 

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with keen interest in fundamental physics and precision measurements to be the leading research fellow on the programme. The candidates should have a PhD in experimental atomic physics, laser spectroscopy or related subject.   

The project will be carried on in the groups of Associate Professor David Wilkowski and Professor Nikolay Zheludev at the main campus of Nanyang Technological University in Singapore 

The Research Project Leader position is available from early 2021 for 2 years with possible extension. The position will remain open until it is fulfilled. Competitive salary will be depending on experience. 

For any inquiries contact, Associate Professor David Wilkowski ( or Dr Giorgio Adamo ( and copy your correspondence to Please provide complete CV summarizing your research activities, a motivation letter, an exhaustive list of publication, and the contact details of at least two referees.​ ​​​​
