The Opportunity

This Research Fellow position links to a dynamic and energetic research program at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Future Low Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET). This role sits within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in Monash, and works closely with the researchers in FLEET.

This is a one-year postdoctoral position with the potential to extend up to two additional years within the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Future Low Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET). Enabled by the new science of atomically thin materials, FLEET brings together over 40 world-leading experts to develop a new generation of ultra-low power devices.  

Reporting to Dr Julie Karel, this role is responsible for conducting independent research aiming to investigate spin current generation and manipulation in novel materials. For more information about Dr Karel’s research focus, please click here. The Research Fellow is expected to fabricate devices using the state-of-the-art facilities available at the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN) and carry out electronic and magnetotransport experiments.

Our Ideal Candidate

You will have completed a PhD in a relevant discipline with extensive research experience. You will also have an expert knowledge in standard semiconductor fabrication techniques (e.g. lithography and thin film deposition) to fabricate devices for electronic and magnetotransport measurements. Experience using a Physical Properties Measurement System (or similar) to conduct temperature and field dependent transport measurements is required in this role.

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

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

To apply:

Please submit your most recent resume and a copy of cover letter along with a statement responding to the Key Selection Criteria listed in the position description. For instructions on how to apply, please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
