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 critical mass of researchers is of fundamental importance in fostering the kind of interdisciplinary interactions that create modern research excellence.
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.
There is no better place to study and research physics than the Research School of Physics at The Australian National University.
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.
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
