The Opportunity

The Faculty of Science is seeking to appoint an outstanding Research Fellow to support the ARC Discovery funded projects. The researcher is expected to conduct cutting-edge research on cold atoms physics, publish papers in high-impact journals and present results at major international conferences. This position represents an exciting opportunity for you to develop your research expertise and contribute towards the research of the university.

The successful applicant will study the physics of topological excitations such as quantised vortices and their dynamical properties in Bose-Einstein condensates and superfluid Fermi gases.

In this role you will be responsible for providing a high quality program for undergraduate and research students as well as undertaking and publishing high quality research. You will be involved with developing research collaboration and scientific programmes.

Candidates should have a PhD in physics of cold atoms, or a closely related field from a recognised university along with strong oral and written English skills and a demonstrated ability to plan and complete projects with substantial organisation and independence.

As the successful candidate you will be expected to have experience on topological excitations such as quantised vortices, working knowledge of theoretical and computational cold atoms frameworks such as dynamical mean-field and Bogoliubov-de Gennes theories, and experience in programming and high-performance computing, along with ability to participate in the drafting of scientific publications and funding proposals.

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"
