Our research group is working on metamaterials and related electromagnetic issues at Nagoya Institute of Technology (NIT), which is known as one of the top research universities in Japan. The research group is new but rapidly growing due to success during the last few years. We already have a wide range of advanced research facilities including a state-of-the-art VNA (Keysight Technologies, PNA-X series), arbitrary waveform generator (25 GHz bandwidth, 65 GSa/s), two oscilloscopes, spectrum analyser, eight workstations (180 cores and more than 1.5 TB RAM in total), six NASs (over 200 TB), electromagnetic simulators (ANSYS HFSS, 25 licences) (CST, 5 licences), etc. Our group is increasing its presence in the metamaterial research field and has been publishing papers from top-ranked journals in recent years. Some of them are highlighted by globally prestigious journals including Nature.

This will be a great opportunity to join the emerging group and further enhance your career with us. We are looking for a few of excellent, highly motivated postdoc researchers who can join our research group. At these positions, you will be involved with a millimetre-wave metamaterial project using nonlinear circuits such as diodes. To be considered, the candidates are expected to have strong experience/knowledge/capability in the following:

Nonlinear circuits
Millimetre wave
Electromagnetic simulation

As a minimum requirement, you must have a PhD degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering or other related fields.

The salary depends on the performance and career of the candidate but is expected to be between 4,000,000 and 6,000,000 yen per year. The type of employment will be part-time or full-time, depending on how quickly he/she can start the job. However, the difference between them does not change the amount of the salary.

To apply for this position:
Please send an email to Prof Wakatsuchi ( together with your detailed CV including the full list of publications and contact information of at least one referee (a few would be more ideal). Also, as mentioned above, please note that these openings will be closed once best-fit candidates are found. Thus, we strongly recommend you to apply as soon as possible.
