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.

About ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies
The ARC CoE in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET) is an international innovator in novel electronics technologies. Enabled by the new science of atomically thin materials, FLEET brings together over 40 world-leading experts to develop a new generation of ultra-low power devices.
Headquartered at Monash University, the FLEET network will comprise 20 chief investigators at seven Australian institutions, 22 partner investigators at 16 institutions worldwide, and over 100 HDR students and postdoctoral fellows. The team is highly interdisciplinary with high-profile researchers from atomic physics, condensed matter physics, materials science, electronics, nanofabrication and atomically thin materials.
FLEET higher degree by research (HDR) students and early career researchers (ECRs) will take part in a comprehensive training program incorporating excellent supervision, professional development, opportunities for networking, and support of diverse career pathways.
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, we offer women-specific mentoring ...programs and other career support initiatives for female scientists to create gender equity at the workplace and retain women in STEM. FLEET's Equity and Diversity policy can be found on our website and will be followed through the recruitment process, subject to variations according to respective policies at individual institutions. We strongly encourage female scientists to join our team.
To ensure that our HDR students develop a highly competitive and diverse skills base and therefore enhance their future career opportunities, FLEET will offer research internship programs up to six months duration at Partner Organisations.
