  • Achieve at one of the top 100 universities in the world
  • Where international collaboration is pursued
  • Plenty of reasons to be inspired

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.

The Opportunity

This position is closely aligned with the Monash node of the new ARC Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics at the Tera-scale (CoEPP). In this role, you will be expected to develop close working relationships with CoEPP staff - in particular, with the Monash node director and other Monash staff.  

The role demands demonstrable productivity, scientific creativity and an exceptional technical knowledge of particle physics. You will be part of a team within the Monash node of the CoEPP, which includes three academic staff, four research-only staff (Postdoctoral Fellows) and numerous postgraduate students. You will be expected to conduct independent research in theoretical particle physics at the highest international levels and translate research outcomes into high impact publications.

The successful candidates are expected to closely engage in the research of the CoEPP, focusing on new physics that will be probed by the Large Hadron Collider.  Applicants working in collider phenomenology, Higgs physics, supersymmetry, extra-dimensions, unification, particle astrophysics and dark matter are encouraged to apply.

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

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
