There is no better place to study and research physics than the Research School of Physics at The Australian National University. The Research School of Physics (RSPhys) represents Australia's largest university based research and teaching activity in the physics discipline. The School is home to a number of major national facilities such as Australia's largest accelerator and the H1-NF National Stellarator Facility.
Based in the Department of Electronic and Materials Engineering or the Nonlinear Physics Centre within the Research School of Physics. Up to four positions are available to be filled in this recruitment round. The underlying impetus of our research is a belief in the fundamental importance of physics to all of science and technology and the key role physics must play in addressing the challenges facing the modern world. For example, in addressing climate change, we must better understand the physics of the atmosphere and develop new clean sources of energy. In medicine, further development of new procedures, such as positron therapy for cancer treatment, will not be possible without advancing the basic physics that underlies them. The communications revolution that is changing the world is driven by physics, and if progress is to continue, research must harness advances in electronic materials, lasers and optoelectronic devices.
