The Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, has recently established a new Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics (CGA), jointly supported by the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the Research School of Physics.
The Centre encompasses all aspects of gravitational wave physics and astrophysics, including instrumentation, theory and data analysis, source follow-up and multi-messenger astronomy. It will bring together existing ANU researchers in these areas under one umbrella and expand the capability by making up to seven new tenure-track academic appointments across these research programs over the next year. The inaugural CGA Director is Professor David McClelland.
We are now seeking Expressions of Interest for the key appointment of a Full Professor (Level E). It is the intention that the appointee will initially take on the role of Deputy Director, in the anticipation that they will take over as Director within the next five years. We are seeking an inspirational scientific leader with an equity agenda from any area of research covered by the Centre, who can grow ANU’s leadership across all areas of gravitational wave astronomy. If you think you have the skills, vision and drive required to fill this role, please consider applying, regardless of your current level of appointment.
The appointment comes with an attractive start-up package and the ability to help shape the future of the CGA through subsequent faculty hires. This is a tenure-track position with a negotiable probation period.
(open to female identifying candidates only)
We are seeking to appoint an outstanding early or mid-career academic with a strong research record in gravitational wave astrophysics (theory and data analysis, source follow-up, multi-messenger astronomy). This will be a tenure-track position attracting a significant start-up package. It will be a key foundation position in the CGA. The appointee will assist with recruiting additional appointments into the CGA, helping to shape its future.
We are now seeking Expressions of Interest (EoI) in this position. An EoI will comprise a 1-page statement of achievement and proposed program of research at ANU, along with a 2-page CV. EoIs will be accepted any time up until March 31st 2020. Please email your EOI to the CGA administrator, Dr Sareh Rajabi, firstname.lastname@example.org, and expect confirmation of receipt.
For further information, please contact Professor Susan Scott (email@example.com) or Professor David McClelland (firstname.lastname@example.org) at RSPhys and/or Associate Professor Christian Wolf (email@example.com) at RSAA.
An Exciting opportunity within the Department of Quantum Science, Research School of Physics, the Australian National University for a Postdoctoral / Research Fellow to develop next-generation automatic three-dimensional volumetric imaging instruments.
The Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Fellow will be a key member of a multi-disciplinary team to develop next-generation automatic three-dimensional volumetric imaging instruments. This is to map the features embedded within inorganic and organic materials to improve inspection precision, mapping accuracy and speed. The Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Fellow will innovate optical imaging, tomographic and metrology techniques for integration as part of a multimodal approach to scientific instrumentation. The project will in addition involve scientific computing, digital signal processing and mechatronic control as part of the development work.

The Research School of Physics represents Australia's largest university based research and teaching activity in the physics discipline. The School is home to a number of major national facilities such as Australia's largest accelerator and the H1-NF National Stellarator Facility. Hundreds of academics, technical staff and students form the School's greatest asset, its people. This critical mass of researchers is of fundamental importance in fostering the kind of interdisciplinary interactions that create modern research excellence.
The ANU Node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational-wave Discovery (OzGrav) conducts research on high precision laser interferometry for gravitational wave detection and other applications. The ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS) aims to build sophisticated quantum machines to harness the quantum world for practical applications. OzGrav -ANU and EQUS-ANU reside within the Department of Quantum Science at the Research School of Physics, a dynamic group researching applications of quantum and optical technologies in a range of different areas. It co-hosts three ARC Centres of Excellence, an innovations hub that supports start-up companies, and several other major projects.
We are seeking to appoint up to three experimental physicists to work on optical instrumentation.
The successful candidates should have a PhD or equivalent in physics or a related discipline and a background in optical physics, electro-optics, quantum optics, control systems and low noise electronics.
The Australian National University is a world-leading institution and provides a range of lifestyle, financial and non-financial rewards and programs to support staff in maintaining a healthy work/life balance whilst encouraging success in reaching their full career potential.

Looking for a capable engineer to help set up an optical system consisting of 5 optical components (including light source) for looking at the back of the human eye.
Experience of working with the eye is ideal. Being located in Sydney an added convenience.
Please note this project will have the expectation that IP is assigned to the contractor and confidentiality an expectation of the contractee.
Please include a quote for your services and timeframe required to fulfil these objectives:
- Accurate ray diagrams based on real and obtainable hardware components.
- Clear descriptions of the relations and angles each hardware component has to oneanother.
- Ironing out the problem of reflection off the cornea is a known obstacle requiring a solution.
- A degree of flexibility around help trouble-shooting as the theoretical model (from the engineer) is fabricated by a designer.
If this sounds like you please contact me: Dr Jacob Cook at email@example.com
