Postdoctoral Fellow in School of Chemistry
Australian National University

Position overview

The ANU College of Science (CoS) comprises: the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the Research School of Biology, the Research School of Chemistry, the Research School of Earth Science, the Fenner School of Environment and Society, the Mathematical Sciences Institute, the Research School of Physics, and the Centre for the Public Awareness of Science.  Staff and students within the ANU College of Science conduct research and delivers a research-led education program that encompasses the entire breadth of the sciences, supported by extensive international networks and by world-class facilities.  The College has a strong tradition of research excellence that has fostered distinguished Nobel Laureates and Kyoto Prize winners and that trains scientific leaders in disciplines in which the ANU is consistently ranked in the top twenty in the world.


The successful applicant will develop planar beam combining chips designed for mid-infrared wavelengths (primarily 4 microns, but throughout the 2-13 micron range), with the end goal of prototyping a 4-beam kernel-nulling beam combiner for use with the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (following Martinache and Ireland, A&A, 619, 87). This includes modelling in RSoft, photomask design.


The position is based both at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at Mt Stromlo Observatory, and the Research School of Physics at the main ANU campus. You will participate in the supervision of students, and work in a small team environment in both research schools.
