Research Associate (heterogeneous integration)

Date: 27-Feb-2023

Location: COLLEGE OF DESIGN & ENG, Kent Ridge Campus, SG

Company: National University of Singapore

Job Description

Singapore Hybrid-Integrated Next-Generation μ-Electronics Centre (SHINE) in National University of Singapore (NUS) is looking for applicants for a postdoctoral researcher position to assist in developing thermal management solution and heterogeneous integration process for flexible antenna system. You will work in Singapore-best cutting-edge nanofabrication and characterization facilities in a cross-disciplinary team environment consisting of nanomaterial scientists, device engineers, circuit simulation researchers, and prototype developers, for inventing, simulating, fabricating, and ultimately testing next-generation Flexible Hybrid Electronics systems.


Research Objectives:

The goal of the research is to develop multi-scale heterogeneous integration process technologies and their prototypes. At the chiplet level, we investigate the integration of a power amplifier chiplet modules with a high-performance FD-SOI foundry logic chiplet on innovative rigid interposer technologies. Extending to the board level, the chiplet-integrated interposers are integrated heterogeneously into a flexible hybrid large-area system with distributed flexible antenna, which can serve multiple applications in the area of remote sensing array surfaces for space satellite technologies, sensor-fused smart automotive, robotics, wearable electronics, and low-cost light-weight IoT sensor networks.


-    Develop 2.5D/3D heterogeneous integration process technologies and their prototypes.
-    Develop sensor/optoelectronics-on-interposer integration process.
-    Develop integration process for flexible microfluidics structures and SiC interposers on flexible substrates.
-    Support thermal and thermomechanical analysis tasks using simulation software.
-    Develop thermal management solution for high power flexible electronics systems.
-    Work across multiple domains and contribute to the writing of research articles.

Interested applicants should send their motivation letter, curriculum vitae, and publication list via email to Dr Evgeny Zamburg ( and Ms Hephzibah ( ).


Candidate should meet at least 4 criteria from the following list:
-    Master’s Degree in Electrical, Electronics, Mechanical, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Material Science or its equivalent from a reputable University/Institute is preferred, or equivalent related experience. 
-    Experience in flexible electronics research, characterisation, metrology and electrical testing. 
-     Experience in using Die Bonder, 5D Aerosol Jet Printer, Thermoreflectance & Infared Thermography System, Micro Solder Ball Jet System.
-    Knowledge of integration process and performance evaluation of Si chiplet/SiC interposer structures.
-    Knowledge of thermal and thermomechanical modelling and analysis. 
-    Experience in handling and fabrication of phase change materials.
