The Area

The Research School of Physics (RSPhys) represents Australia's largest university based research and teaching activity in the physics discipline. The School is home to a number of major national facilities such as Australia's largest accelerator and the H1-NF National Stellarator Facility. Hundreds of academics, technical staff and students form the School's greatest asset, its people. This critical mass of researchers is of fundamental importance in fostering the kind of interdisciplinary interactions that create modern research excellence.

The underlying impetus of our research is a belief in the fundamental importance of physics to all of science and technology and the key role physics must play in addressing the challenges facing the modern world. For example, in addressing climate change, we must better understand the physics of the atmosphere and develop new clean sources of energy. In medicine, further development of new procedures, such as positron therapy for cancer treatment, will not be possible without advancing the basic physics that underlies them. The communications revolution that is changing the world is driven by physics, and if progress is to continue, research must harness advances in electronic materials, lasers and optoelectronic devices.

There is no better place to study and research physics than the Research School of Physics at The Australian National University.

The Position

This position will be based in the Centre for Plasmas and Fluids within the Research School of Physics and is funded by an ARC Linkage Project grant in conjunction with Oregon Physics (A company making Focussed Ion Beams in Portland, OR). The successful applicant will work with other members of the project team (i.e. Chief Investigators and Students) to achieve the project aims. These relate to the development ion beams of negatively charged oxygen molecules using caesium surface interactions.

The Person

To excel in this role you will have:
A PhD in physics, engineering or materials-science, or a related area.
Ability to deliver high-quality research outputs
Experience in at least one and preferably several of the following areas:
radio frequency generated plasma ion sources
electronics design and conception both hardware and software
physics of ion beam acceleration
gas and surface chemistry of alkali metals
Time of Flight and Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

The Australian National University is a world-leading institution and provides a range of lifestyle, financial and non-financial rewards and programs to support staff in maintaining a healthy work/life balance whilst encouraging success in reaching their full career potential.
