- Innovative and creative research environment
- Perform world-class research at one of the top universities in Australia
If you're after a rewarding career, Monash University can help make it happen. With leading academics and world-class resources, combined with a ranking in the top 100 universities worldwide, we offer all you need to build a brighter future.
We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to study the electronic properties of novel atomically thin materials.
The successful candidate will be expected to:
- be responsible for the operation of a new facility for combined scanning probe microscopy and quantum electronic transport measurements of atomically thin materials
- use the facility to study new atomically thin materials and devices including graphene, atomically thin semiconductors such as MoS2 or WS2, and van der Waals heterostructures
- publish research outcomes in high-impact peer-reviewed journals, present at major international conferences and workshops
- work with technical staff, PhD and Honours students associate with the facility and assist in the supervision of students.
The successful applicant must hold a PhD in experimental condensed matter physics, materials science, or closely related field, with research experience in scanned probe characterization and/or ultra-high vacuum surface science techniques.
Research experience in atomically thin materials, advanced materials synthesis (CVD, MBE, van der Waals heterostructures, etc.), micro- or nano-electronic device characterization, and/or optical characterization is desirable.
Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
