Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Experimental High Energy Physics

Monash University, Australia - School of Physics and Astronomy

Duration: 2 year fixed-term appointment.

  • Work as part of the COMET collaboration.
  • Searching for Charged Lepton Flavour Violation.
  • Seeking outstanding candidates in Experimental High Energy Physics.

Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure, and learning facilities; opportunities to collaborate internationally; as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work. We’re a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what’s expected; expand what we know; and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

The Opportunity

We seek an experimental particle physicist to work as part of the Monash team within the COMET collaboration. COMET is searching for Charged Lepton Flavour Violation and is based at the JPARC facility in Japan.

The Research Fellow will be based at Monash, but work with members of the collaboration on preparing the COMET experiment for its initial Phase I running as well as studies for the later Phase II of the experiment. 

The Research Fellow will be expected to make significant contributions to the preparation of the Phase I detector, present results at major conferences and workshops, and to assist in the supervision of PhD and honours students in the School.

The role demands demonstrable scientific creativity and an exceptional technical knowledge of experimental particle physics. The incumbent is expected to conduct independent research in experimental particle physics at the highest international levels and translate research outcomes into high impact publications.

The School of Physics and Astronomy is strongly committed to improving the diversity of our staff and students, and promoting a culture of equality, fairness, respect, and openness. In 2015 the School received a Bronze Pleiades Award - Recognising Commitment to Advancing Women in Astronomy. This is an important first step in affirming women within the School, one that we can build upon, as the University engages in addressing the Athena Swan Charter. Consequently, women are especially encouraged to apply for this position.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash jobs".
