Research Fellow - Terahertz Photonics

Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology

School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering

About This Opportunity

It is an exciting time to get involved with the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, located on UQ’s St. Lucia campus.  The School is ramping up its investment in teaching, research and engagement to create an inspiring, diverse and flexible workplace. The direction is backed by a bold, new strategic vision to ensure the School is at the forefront of meaningful research outcomes and pedagogy across its core impact areas of health, data, automation and energy. Boasting strong student enrolments in professionally accredited programs, combined with world-class researchers and facilities, the School is focused on strengthening its position in the global computer science and engineering communities.  By attracting the brightest minds and fostering a truly innovative and collaborative work environment, the School will develop global solutions to contemporary issues and mentor the leaders of tomorrow.

Primary purpose of this position is to engage in research activities of the School, and play a pivotal role in developing terahertz photonics technology in the context of imaging and sensing and to contribute to teaching and student supervision. We seek to appoint an enthusiastic team player who can operate at the leading edge of research with interest in developing new terahertz technology and methodology.

This position is located at our picturesque St Lucia campus, renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses, and located just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, and with outstanding public transport connections, our 114-hectare site provides a perfect work environment – you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.

Our Ideal Candidate

You should possess a PhD in Electrical Engineering, experimental physics or related field. You should have significant experience and a successful record of research achievements in terahertz photonics with demonstrated high quality outputs.

Knowledge of semiconductor physics and background in THz quantum-cascade lasers as well as experience with the design and application of state-of-the-art THz imaging and spectroscopy systems based on THz quantum-cascade lasers would be highly regarded.

We value diversity and inclusion, and actively encourage applications from those who bring diversity to the University. Our Diversity and Inclusion webpage contains further information if you require additional support. Accessibility requirements and/or adjustments can be directed to recruitment@uq.edu.au.

What We Can Offer

This is a full-time fixed term position at Research Academic level B. The full-time equivalent base salary will be in the range $95,771 - $113,728 plus super of up to 17%.

You will be able to take advantage of UQ Sport Facilities, salary sacrificing options, on-campus childcare, discounted private health insurance, cheap parking, development programs and many other benefits.
