Centre for Organic Photonics and Electronics

The Centre for Organic Photonics and Electronics (COPE) draws together expertise from Chemistry and Physics in a combined facility ( COPE has more than 20 senior research staff, postdoctoral fellows and research students and is housed in laboratories on the 9th Floor of the Chemistry building that include state-of-the-art synthesis and materials characterisation facilities; a Class 1000 clean room incorporating gloveboxes with integral evaporators for device fabrication; and prototype measurement capability. The laboratory is located on the St. Lucia campus, one of the most spacious and attractive university campuses in Australia. COPE is located within the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences (SCMB), which combines the disciplines of Chemistry, Biochemistry & Molcular Biology, Microbiology and Parasitology into a single academic unit.


The Centre has extensive experimental and theoretical research programs in optoelectronic organic materials for organic light-emitting diodes, photovoltaics, photodiodes, organic field effect transistors, and organic chemosensors.

The role

This position will conduct research into the fabrication, testing and analysis of organic light-emitting diodes for solid-state lighting, and will write research grant applications and undertake research projects in collaboration with colleagues.

The person


Applicants should possess a PhD or equivalent in physics or a related discipline, and demonstrate experience in physical, electrical, and optoelectronic characterisation of organic light-emitting diodes. The successful candidate will also demonstrate experience in thermal evaporation processes and equipment, and the fabrication and testing of organic semiconductor devices, particularly organic light-emitting diodes.
