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. Hundreds of academics, technical staff and students form the School's greatest asset, its people.
This position will be based in the department of Electronic Materials Engineering within the Research School of Physics and is funded by an ARC Linkage Project grant in conjunction with Varian Semiconductor Equipment (a division of Applied Materials, inc). The successful applicant will work with other members of the project team (i.e. Chief investigators and students) to achieve the project aims. These relate to the development of ultra-low resistance contacts for future microelectronic devices, including devices based on silicon and 2D materials. In their role as an Academic Level A the Postdoctoral Fellow is expected to: 1. Undertake independent research in the area of semiconductor device physics and engineering with a view to publishing original and innovative results in refereed journals, present research at academic seminars and at national and international conferences, and collaborate with other researchers at a national level. This includes working as part of a team on an externally funded project subject to deadlines. 2. Collaborate with senior staff to actively seek and secure external funding, assist to prepare and submit research proposals to external funding bodies as appropriate. 3. Subject to the requirements of the funding source and where an opportunity exists, the occupant may be required to contribute to the teaching activities of the School at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This includes, but is not limited to, the preparation and delivery of lectures and tutorials, the preparation of online material, marking and assessment, consultations, and with students or acting as subject coordinators. 4. Supervise students working on individual or group projects at undergraduate, honours, graduate-coursework levels. Assist with supervision of research students. 5. Assist to supervise research support staff in your research area. 6. Actively contribute to all aspects of the operation of the School. 7. Assist in outreach activities including to prospective students, research institutes, industry, government, the media and the general public. 8. Maintain high academic standards in all education, research and administration endeavours. 9.

A demonstrated understanding of equal opportunity principles and policies and a commitment to their application in a university context. 11. Other duties as required that are consistent with the classification of the position.
To excel in this role you will have: - A PhD in physics, engineering or materials-science, or a related area. - Ability to deliver high-quality research outputs - Experience in at least one and preferably several of the following areas: - semiconductor device physics - electrical characterisation of materials and devices - semiconductor processing and characterisation, - semiconductor materials science - 2D materials research SELECTION CRITERIA: 1. A PhD (or awarding of a PhD within six months of appointment commencement) in physics, engineering or materials - science, or equivalent qualifications and experience in a related area, with a track record of independent research in related areas as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. 2. Evidence of experience in one or more of the following areas: semiconductor device physics, semiconductor processing and characterisation, semiconductor materials science or 2D materials. Specific research experience with electrical characterisation techniques would be an advantage but is not essential. 3. An ability and commitment to contribute to bids for competitive external funding to support individual and collaborative research activities. 4. Evidence of an ability and willingness to teach at all levels. 5. The ability to assist in the supervision of students working on research projects. 6.
