School of Mathematics and Physics

UQ Physics is located in the School of Mathematics and Physics in the Faculty of Science. The Discipline is internationally recognised for its research excellence, and hosts a number of world-class research centres. Details of the research interests of academic staff may be accessed on the School’s web site at http://www.smp.uq.edu.au/


Physics is one of the University of Queensland’s top 30 research strengths, and the School of Mathematics and Physics is proud to support a major research effort in condensed matter physics. In the recent Excellence in Research for Australia 2015 assessment, the University of Queensland was rated “well-above international standard” in 02 Physical Sciences, as well as in the sub-categories 0204 Condensed Matter Physics and 0206 Quantum Physics.

The role

The School of Mathematics and Physics is seeking to appoint an experimental condensed matter physicist with research interests relating to sustainable technologies. The successful candidate will participate in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, postgraduate supervision, as well as perform administrative and other activities associated with the School and the discipline of Physics.


An exciting opportunity exists for the right candidate to join the UQ Centre for Organic Photonics & Electronics (COPE), which is a joint venture between the School of Mathematics & Physics and the School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences and has more than $10m of world-class infrastructure available.

The person

The appointee will have a demonstrated record of high quality research, and will have the capacity to develop competitive external grant applications. The research program of the successful candidate should strongly complement both the School’s current research portfolio, and UQ’s sustainability strategy. It is desirable that their planned research program incorporate interdisciplinary research, and/or industry collaboration. The School is particularly interested in candidates working in the area of organic semiconductors/optoelectronics, or related areas of soft-condensed matter physics. However, applicants with an outstanding track record in any area of experimental condensed matter physics with synergies with other research programs within the School, or elsewhere in the University of Queensland, are encouraged to apply.


The University of Queensland values diversity and inclusion.


Applications are particularly encouraged from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


Applications are particularly encouraged from women. This role is a full-time position; however flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
