RESEARCH FELLOWS IN MESOSCOPIC TRANSPORT (2 POSITIONS)
The University of Melbourne
June 5, 2018
$AUD 69,148- $AUD 93,830 p.a.
Engineering and Technology: Nanotechnology, Physics: Computational, Physics: Solid State
School of Mathematics and Statistics Faculty of Science
Salary: $69,148- 93,830* per annum (*PhD entry level $87,415 per annum) plus 9.5% superannuation
Located in the School of Mathematics and Statistics, these positions are based in the applied mathematics group of Professor John Sader, under the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science. The positions focus on developing computational and/or analytical frameworks for understanding the physics that underlies coupling of the optical, electrical, thermal and mechanical response of nanoscale devices, with focus on exciton transport. Of particular interest is departure from continuum treatments and how these pervade the response of these systems. The incumbents are responsible for developing simulation techniques and/or implementing analytical methods to investigate these phenomena, such as matched asymptotic approaches, moment methods, molecular dynamics, density functional theory, Monte Carlo, lattice Boltzmann and other methods. Concurrently, the incumbents will undertake research relevant to the broader theory/experimental program of the new ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science and with other collaborators external to the University.
Close date: 2 Jul 2018

The University of Melbourne has been a centre of learning for over 150 years. The main campus on the edge of Melbourne’s CBD in Parkville is a focus of the City’s ‘Knowledge Precinct’ and the prestigious medical research ‘Parkville Strip’.
Melbourne is a leading research university, widely renowned for its teaching and the social and economic contributions it makes through knowledge transfer. The University’s performance in international rankings puts it at the forefront of higher education in the Asia-Pacific and beyond.
Internationally, the University is consistently ranked among the leading universities in the world, with its international peers placing it in the top 20 worldwide, and employers placing it in the top 10. In the recent Times Higher Education rankings of the world’s top 200 universities, Melbourne ranked top in Australia and 36 in the world.
Melbourne’s international research pre-eminence was also acknowledged with a top 100 ranking in the Shanghai Jiao Tong rankings. Ranked No. 62 in 2010, the University has climbed steadily in the rankings since first appearing at No. 92 in 2003.
After launching the ground-breaking Melbourne Model in 2007, strong dema...nd for the new courses affirmed the new direction with median ENTER scores for Victorian School leavers 4.5 points higher than the closest Victorian university.
The Melbourne Model introduces undergraduate programs characterized by both breadth and depth, followed by a graduate professional degree, a research higher degree or entry directly into employment.
In 2008 Melbourne commenced offering six New Generation undergraduate degrees in Arts, Biomedicine, Commerce, Environments, Music and Science. The Melbourne Model also introduces a new graduate school experience to Australia, providing the best and brightest with a more focused, intense and professionally relevant degree in areas such as Law, Architecture, Teaching and Nursing. With the Melbourne curriculum now aligning the University with the world’s top universities in Europe, North America and Asia, we enable our students to develop the skills and attributes required by employers all over the world.
More than 45,000 students, including approximately 10,000 students from over 120 countries, take courses in the University’s 12 faculties and graduate schools.
