Research Fellow in Nano-optics (Crozier Group)
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne has a vacancy for a Research Fellow in Nano-optics, working under the supervision of Professor Kenneth Crozier.
Applications must be made at: http://about.unimelb.edu.au/careers
The Research Fellow will work on the experimental demonstration of nanophotonic devices for a novel visible-wavelength optical spectrometer chip. The Research Fellow will design and simulate these devices, realize them experimentally by nanofabrication, and develop new methods to characterize them optically and electrically.
The Research Fellow will join a group whose research in nano- and micro-optics spans from basic to applied. The group’s recent work has included nanowire-based photodetectors for multispectral imaging, optical nanotweezers based on plasmonics and silicon photonics, the demonstration of metasurfaces based on high-index dielectric materials, quantum mechanical effects in plasmonics, and single molecule Raman spectroscopy using optical nanoantennas.
The Research Fellow will perform independent research, leading to the publication of research in journals and at conferences. The Research Fellow will be located in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Melbourne School of Engineering, and will be expected to be an active member of the Department, collaborating with other researchers. This position may undertake research supervision directly related to this area of research, as required.
The Melbourne School of Engineering is strongly committed to supporting diversity and flexibility in the workplace. Applications for part-time or other flexible working arrangements will be welcomed and will be fully considered subject to meeting the inherent requirements of the position.
The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this, the School is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across engineering disciplines. Under a Special Measure, under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) the School is seeking to lift the representation of women from 20% in 2014 to at least 25% over the next 5 years, and strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates.
