FLEET is seeking to appoint two outstanding early career female candidates as Women in FLEET Research Fellows to perform research at one of the FLEET nodes as determined by the candidate’s expertise and research aspirations.
The appointment is for up to three years (at a full-time load), with part-time arrangements negotiable upon request. The level of appointment will be commensurate with the research experience and performance standards for academic levels A/B. Candidates identified as female and within five years of the conferral date of their PhD or equivalent research higher degree are eligible to apply. The eligibility period may be extended to take into account career interruptions.
The ARC Centre of Excellence FLEET aims to reduce the energy used by electronics by developing novel devices based on topological materials, exciton/exciton-polariton condensates, and non-equilibrium topological and superfluid phenomena. The FLEET research program spans theory and experiment, science and engineering, and uses various platforms ranging from ultra-cold atoms to atomically thin materials.
An important part of FLEET’s mission is to create and maintain an inclusive working environment that resolves the conflict of research and family life. In particular, FLEET offers women-specific mentoring programs and other career support initiatives for women scientists to create a gender equity at the workplace and retain female scientists. FLEET supports family-friendly and flexible work arrangements to focus on outputs rather than physical attendance.
The Fellowship is for early-career academics with research interests that align with one or more of the existing research and/or enabling technology themes of FLEET. If successful, the position will be hosted at the node which most closely matches the candidate’s expertise and research interests (Monash, UNSW, Swinburne, UQ or ANU). All candidates must submit an initial application through the FLEET website.
Working closely with and under supervision of one or more FLEET Chief Investigators (CIs), the WiF Fellow will perform outstanding and original, experimental or theoretical research, aligned with one or more of the FLEET research themes.
What we are looking for:
- A PhD degree in physics, materials science or related field
- Demonstrated potential to engage in research relevant to the strategic needs of the area
- Developing or established track record of independent, original research evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference presentations
- A track record of developing and maintaining collaborations within and across research institutions.
