Location- The Department of Electronic Materials Engineering, Australian National University, Australian
Research/Job Area- Physics, chemistry engineering or materials science or equivalent qualifications
- A PhD (or awarding of a PhD within six months of appointment commencement) in physics, chemistry engineering or materials science or equivalent qualifications and experience in a related area, with a track record of independent research in the field of nano-materials fabrication and characterisation as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at conferences.
2. Evidence of the ability to articulate and prosecute innovative research in the field of nano-materials fabrication and characterisation. Experience that is relevant to experimental research in some or all of the following areas: ion modification of materials, nano-fabrication, synchrotron based analytical techniques, membrane science, 2D materials. Specific research experience in small angle x-ray scattering, swift heavy ion irradiation, thin film deposition, and/or graphene manipulation 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 collaborate research activities.
4. Ability and willingness to contribute to teaching within the scope of the project
- The ability to assist in the supervision of students working on research projects.
6. The ability to work as part of a team and to deadlines.
7.
