The following position in experimental condensed-matter physics has been advertised at the
University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.  In the context of the the fact that Australia is
about to commence construction of a research reactor at Lucas Heights, to replace the present HIFAR
reactor, and that construction will be complete in 2005, this would be a great opportunity for
candidates with strong backgrounds in neutron scattering.  The University is ~ 45 minutes drive from
Lucas Heights.  The job is also advertised on the Web at:
Lecturer/Senior Lecturer

The School of Physics is recognised internationally for the excellence of its research and teaching
programs. One of the largest physics schools in Australia with 41 academic and research staff, UNSW
Physics is consistently amongst the most successful in the country at obtaining peer-reviewed
research funding. Research activities include astrophysics, biophysics, condensed matter physics,
environmental and applied physics, and theoretical physics. The School hosts the newly created ARC
Special Research Centre in Quantum Computing Technology, and has access to a wide range of
outstanding research infrastructure.
The School invites applications for two positions. It is expected that one appointment will be made
in experimental semiconductor physics in the area of solid-state quantum computation (including
related quantum electronic devices), and one appointment in the more general field of experimental
condensed matter physics (including soft CMP).
The positions are full-time (continuing), and can include periods where the position becomes
part-time at the appointee's discretion and the agreement of the School, should this better suit the
appointee's personal circumstances.
Essential criteria: a PhD in physics or related discipline; an outstanding record of post-doctoral
research in an area relevant to the School's interests; demonstrated ability to teach university
level physics; demonstrated capacity to contribute to the academic and educational life of the
School; demonstrated ability to operate cooperatively in a team environment and an ability to
implement equity and diversity policies and programs.
Desirable criteria: outstanding research achievement in experimental semiconductor physics and
experience in semiconductor fabrication (one position); outstanding research achievement in
experimental physics (one position); demonstrated high level of commitment to teaching University
level physics.
The salary range for Lecturer is A$51,150 - A$60,742 per year and for Senior Lecturer is A$62,658 -
A$72,250 per year depending on qualifications and experience. Subject to consent by the University,
academic staff may undertake a limited amount of external consultative work. Suitably qualified
women and people from EEO groups are encouraged to apply. The University reserves the right to fill
the positions by invitation. Membership of a University approved superannuation scheme is a
condition of employment.
Enquiries regarding the positions should be directed to Professor John Storey, Head of School on
telephone (02) 9385 4553, facsimile (02) 9385 6060, or email j.storey at unsw.edu.au
