Dr. Qihua Xiong won 2nd batch Singapore National Research Foundation Research Fellowship (NRF-RF) and recently joined Nanyang Technological University as a Nanyang Assistant Professor. With a strong support from both NRF and NTU, Dr. Xiong is expecting to establish a vibrant group dedicated into the research in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Dr. Xiong finished his B.Sc. degree in Physics at Wuhan University in 1997. After obtained his M.Sc. degree in physics from Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2000, he went to United States of America to pursue his Ph.D. research. In 2006, he received his Ph.D. degree in materials science at The Pennsylvania State University under the supervision of Professor Peter Eklund. His Ph.D. research covers from fundamental physical properties especially phonon properties of semiconductor nanowires, to nanomechanical properties and twinning superlattices in nanowires. He joined Professor Charles Lieber laboratory at Harvard as a postdoctoral research fellow in 2006. During his postdoctoral training, he has extended his research to include nanoelectronics and nanoelectronic devices for single molecule biosensing.
Dr. Xiong received several awards and fellowships during his graduate and undergraduate studies, including Pan-American Advanced Studies Institute (PASI) fellowship (DOE and NSF, 2006), Graduate Award for Academic Excellence (The Pennsylvania State University, 2006), Excellent Graduate Fellowship Award (1998 and 1999, CAS), Hui Kai Fellowship Award (Wuhan University, 1996), Gui Zhiting-Xu Hailan Fellowship Award (Wuhan University, 1995) and Outstanding Student Award (Wuhan University, 1994).
Dr. Xiong’s group is seeking strongly motivated postdoctoral research fellows to carry out a multi-million dollar project (funded by Singapore National Research Foundation and Nanyang Technological University), which is on the cutting-edge research in nanomaterials, nanoelectronics, energy and nanoelectronic-bio interface for single molecule biosensing. Due to the highly interdisciplinary nature of the project, candidates with a Ph.D. degree in experimental condensed matter physics, electronic engineering, chemistry (physical or polymer), biochemistry and biophysics are all encouraged to apply. Annual salary ranges from S$ 36,000-60,000, depending on qualification. Starting date is flexible and multiple positions are available.
We also keep hiring Ph.D. students with full scholarships support, undergraduate students who want to expand their horizon. For perspective Ph.D. students, please be advised that TOEFL and GRE scores are recommended but NOT required. Applicants can take equivalent English test organized by the school. Interested candidates from Physics, Chemistry, Biological, MatSE or EE should contact Dr. Qihua Xiong with their CVs. We are looking for highly passionate young students who are willing to devote themselves in the world-wide ambition and enterprise of nanotechnology. A master’s degree or demonstrated research experience in undergraduate is a plus.
