Department/School: School of Physics

Salary: $73,669 - $99,964 (Level A)

Role & Superannuation rate: Academic - Full time - 9.5% super

About the role:

The Australian Research Council (ARC) has invested $31.3 million of funding into a major new Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery, known as OzGrav, which started operations in 2017. OzGrav conducts research in instrumentation, data analysis, and astrophysics across the gravitational wave spectrum utilizing major international facilities including the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) and the Square Kilometer Array (SKA).

OzGrav’s mission is to capitalise on the historic first detections of gravitational waves to understand the extreme physics of black holes and warped space-time and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers through this new window on the Universe. As well as fundamental research, OzGrav pursues a vigorous outreach agenda, which includes working with students from low socio-economic areas and encouraging the participation of minorities in science at all levels. OzGrav also pursues research translation and commercialisation, generating opportunities for staff to experience secondments to industry during their postdoctoral terms.

The Research Fellow position is in any area of gravitational wave science relevant to OzGrav’s discovery mission, with an emphasis on data analysis, source astrophysics, detector characterization, and computing. The appointee will conduct their own independent research and collaborate with other members of OzGrav on joint projects.

About you:

  • A PhD (or near completion), or equivalent in physics, mathematics, electrical engineering, or a related discipline
  • Demonstrated aptitude for research, with a sound publication record in relevant areas, commensurate with experience and opportunities
  • Demonstrated ability to prepare research reports and manuscripts for publication
  • Strong evidence of ability and desire to build an academic research career trajectory
  • Experience in gravitational wave data analysis, astrophysics, or instrumentation
