School of Mathematics and Physics

The University of Queensland is recognised nationally and internationally for its research in mathematical physics, and is the leading provider of tertiary education in Queensland. The School of Mathematics and Physics hosts several research centres and is an active partner in a number of multidisciplinary research groups both within and external to the University. Our staff are recognised internationally for their active and dynamic research programs across a wide range of areas in mathematics and physics.

The University of Queensland is one of the top three universities in Australia, measured by the quality of its comprehensive range of research fields. In addition to providing excellent potential for interdisciplinary research, the University is located in the vibrant riverfront city of Brisbane, whose sub-tropical climate, cultural diversity, and proximity to coastal regions make it an attractive environment in which to live.


About This Opportunity

The research fellow will perform experimental research on the generation and manipulation of polar core vortices in spinor Bose-Einstein condensates within the UQ experimental quantum gas research program.  The position is funded by a newly awarded Australian Research Council Discovery project, and will work with a spin-1 rubidium Bose-Einstein condensate in a homogenous quasi-two-dimensional trapping potential implemented by a digital micromirror device (DMD).  It is desirable that the successful candidate will collaborate closely with the UQ theory team developing new proposals and an understanding of experimental observations.

This position is located at our picturesque St Lucia campus, renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses, and located just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, and with outstanding public transport connections, our 114-hectare site provides a perfect work environment – you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.


Our Ideal Candidate

You will have completed a PhD in experimental quantum physics, and have experience working with optics.  You will be interested in the physics of ultracold quantum gases and spinor Bose-Einstein condensates, and be eager to collaborate with theorists.

We value diversity and inclusion, and actively encourage applications from those who bring diversity to the University. Our Diversity and Inclusion webpage contains further information if you require additional support. Accessibility requirements and/or adjustments can be directed to recruitment@uq.edu.au.


What We Can Offer

This is a full-time position at Academic level A for up to 3 years. 

The full-time equivalent base salary will be in the range $84,878.42 - $89,285.83 plus super of up to 17%.

You will be able to take advantage of UQ Sport Facilities, salary sacrificing options, on-campus childcare, discounted private health insurance, cheap parking, development programs and many other benefits.

For further information, please review The University of Queensland's Enterprise Bargaining Agreement 2018-2021.
