The Opportunity

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to study the electronic properties of novel atomically thin materials. The position is funded as part of the ARC Laureate Fellowship programme of Professor Michael Fuhrer.

The successful candidate will be expected to:

  • synthesize novel materials, fabricate nanoelectronic devices, and characterize devices using advanced electrical, optical, and scanning probe techniques
  • publish research outcomes in high-impact peer-reviewed journals, present at major international conferences and workshops
  • work with technical staff, PhD and Honours students associated 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 a closely related field. Research experience in atomically thin materials, advanced materials synthesis (CVD, MBE, van der Waals heterostructures, etc.), micro or nano-electronic device characterization, optical characterization, scanned probe characterization, and/or ultra-high vacuum surface science techniques is desirable.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer toDownload File "Download FileHow to apply for Monash Jobs"
