The Opportunity

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 toDownload File "Download FileHow to apply for Monash Jobs"
