Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Compensation: Competitive salary and employee benefits


Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology (SIMIT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), was founded in 1928, SIMIT is a multidisciplinary comprehensive institute engaged in both fundamental and applied research. In the 90-year development history, SIMIT has always readjusted the layout of scientific research to meet the national strategic demands, and played a leading role in the national economic construction. In the 1960s, SIMIT started the development of micro-electronics and semiconductor manufacturing technology, and developed China’s first piece of industrial practical PN junction isolation IC, high-speed ECL circuit and the first domestic 8-bit, 16-bit microprocessor. In the mid 1980’s, SIMIT conducted research on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and Silicon on insulator (SOI) materials, occupying a domestic leading position and an important place in the world. In the 21st century, SIMIT had independent intellectual property of broadband wireless communication system; SIMIT realized the industrialization of SOI materials and filled the domestic blank. The independently developed Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detector (SNSPD) technology achieved NbN SNSPD detection efficiency of over 90% for the first time globally, making it the most efficient in the world. The SNSPD was successfully applied in the quantum communication domain. In collaboration with the University of Science and Technology of China, the research achievement was included in China Ten Major Scientific and Technological Progress in 2014.During the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, SIMIT has deployed three significant breakthroughs, including intelligent sensing microsystem, superconducting quantum devices & circuits and high-end Si-based materials and devices.
