  • Seeking outstanding particle physicist

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

The School of Physics and Astronomy, and the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics, Monash University, invite applications for a researcher starting in 2017. We are seeking a research associate with postdoctoral qualifications to conduct interdisciplinary research on visualisation of multidimensional physics data.

As the successful candidate, you will be expected to develop and apply advanced statistical techniques for analysis and visualisation of high dimensional data in the evaluation of models in physics, under the supervision of three academic staff (G. Valencia, C. Balazs, D. Cook). The position will require you to conduct independent research in particle physics at the highest international levels and translate research outcomes into high impact publications.

If you have a strong statistics or physics background, excellent computing skills, programming experience in R, C++ or python, an interest in data visualisation, and a willingness to energetically engage in cross-disciplinary groups, we encourage you to apply.

Our ideal candidate will have experience in interactive graphics, supported by knowledge of high energy physics.

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

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