About the role:
The School of Physics at the University of Melbourne is hiring Postdoctoral Research Fellows in Meta-optical Device. The successful candidates will work on the experimental realisation of new nano-optical devices and their incorporation into optical systems. They will design and simulate meta-optical devices, undertake nanofabrication to realise the devices, and develop new methods to characterise them optically and/or electrically.
The Research Fellows will join a node of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Transformative Meta-Optical Systems. The ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems (TMOS) brings together five Australian and 13 leading international universities as well as Australian and global companies to create entirely new optics-based technologies with enormous market potential. The Centre has received $34.9 million funding from the Australian Research Council to operate from 2020-2027.
- A PhD (or close to completion of a PhD) in a relevant area of physics or electrical and electronic engineering, including nanoscience or optics
- Expertise in relevant theory and modelling
- Demonstrated ability in experimental cleanroom nanofabrication and characterisation and/or developing and using custom optical systems
- Capacity to work with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
