The ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS) has created an initiative to recruit to women only Postdoctoral Research Fellows, the Deborah Jin Fellowship. This Fellowship will be undertaken at any of the following four nodes of the Centre: University of Queensland, University of Sydney, Macquarie University, and University of Western Australia.
Deborah S. Jin was a brilliant American physicist who was one of the world’s foremost experts on how ordinary atoms and molecules change their behaviour at extraordinarily low temperatures. Her visionary and methodical approach made it possible to use these ultracold gases as model systems to tease out the quantum principles that lead to behaviours in real materials, such as superconductivity.
The Deborah Jin Fellowship honours her legacy by supporting and encouraging early-and mid-career women physicists.
EQUS is seeking to appoint two outstanding early career female candidates to perform research at one of our nodes (UQ, USYD, MQ, and UWA), as determined by the candidate’s expertise and research aspirations.
Working closely with and under supervision of one or more EQUS Chief Investigators (CIs), the Fellow will perform outstanding and original, experimental or theoretical research.
The appointment is for up to three years. This appointment can be full-time, part-time and/or accommodate different types of flexible working. Job-sharing arrangements will also be considered. The level of appointment will be commensurate with the research experience and performance standards for academic levels A/B. Candidates who identify as women and are within five years of the conferral date of their PhD are eligible to apply. The eligibility period may be extended to take into account career interruptions.
Location: Brisbane, Sydney, Perth
Employment Type: Full-time
Duration: Three years
Classification: Academic A/B
Salary package (AUD): Level A $84,424 to $98,940/ Level B $95,771 to $123,628 (exact rate depends on institution) plus 17% superannuation
Please note that relocation support is available (up to AUD$5,000) and are start-up research funds (up to AUD$10,000).
About Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems
The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS)
is a seven-year investment of over $40 million by the Australian government in quantum technologies. EQUS researchers are conducting world-leading research into building quantum machines, with programs to develop the Designer Quantum Materials, Quantum-enabled Diagnostics & Imaging, and Quantum Engines & Instruments at the heart of these machines.
EQUS researchers are based at five Australian universities: University of Queensland, University of Sydney, University of Western Australia, Australian National University, and Macquarie University. EQUS research is led by 18 by Chief Investigators and supported by more than 100 research students and postdoctoral fellow. New developments in research and engineering mean a new generation of quantum technologies are being created. These technologies have potential uses in a range of fields - including health, telecommunications, and finance - and will impact across business and society as a whole.
The Centre will pioneer the designer quantum materials, quantum engines, and quantum imaging systems at the heart of these machines. We will solve t...he most challenging research problems at the interface of basic quantum physics and engineering, and work with partners in industry to translate these research discoveries into practical applications and devices. Our capacity building programs will train a new generation of scientists in cutting-edge fundamental research, innovation, and entrepreneurialism, and ultimately have a major impact on Australia’s high-tech economy.
