At UNSW, we pride ourselves on being a workplace where the best people come to do their best work. We aspire to be Australia’s global university, improving and transforming lives through excellence in research, outstanding education and a commitment to advancing a just society.
The Electron Microscope Unit (EMU) is a central research and research training facility within the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre. EMU has 17 major instruments and is acquiring a new aberration corrected TEM and has recently installed new Plasma FIB, materials TEM and TEM systems in 2017/2018. The EMU is a node of the Microscopy Australia (MA, formally AMMRF) and is committed to facilitating access to its imaging capabilities by external as well as internal researchers.
Reporting to the Director, EMU and supervising a small team, you will take a leading role in developing transmission electron microscopy, especially aberration corrected transmission electron microscopy. High-level researcher support and training, supervision and mentoring of other facility staff is required, as well as assisting with the strategic planning for the future of the facility around transmission electron microscopy. An independent research portfolio in electron microscopy and instrumentation development will be an important component of the job and as such the position will have a cross-appointment to a relevant school/faculty of UNSW.
About the successful applicant:
You have a PhD and or significant collaborative academic research experience in advanced aberration corrected TEM and software for data analysis. Experience working with, training and supervising others within a multidisciplinary research environment is also essential. Additional requirements include:
Level C (in addition to Level B)
