Postdoctoral Fellowship in Materials Chemistry/Physics

School of Chemistry, The University of Sydney, Australia

Applications are invited from motivated individuals with strong  
skills and interests in experimental materials chemistry/physics to  
work on a research project concerning novel magnetic oxides. The  
project will make particular use of a new floating-zone image furnace  
to grow single crystals for neutron scattering experiments, many of  
which will be carried out at the nearby OPAL research reactor. [For  
more information on OPAL see http://www.ansto.gov.au/ansto/bragg.]

Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent) in solid-state chemistry,  
physics, or materials science. Preference will be given to applicants  
with experience in floating-zone crystal growth and neutron  
scattering techniques. Experience in synchrotron X-ray techniques and  
magnetic property measurements would be advantageous.

The position is full time from mid-2006 for one year (subject to a  
standard probation period for new appointees), with the possibility  
of a further offer for up to one year. Please note that applicants  
must be eligible for the security clearance required to carry out  
experiments at the OPAL research reactor at Lucas Heights.

Remuneration package: AUD$68,155 - $73,161 p.a., which includes a  
base salary Level A AUD$57,592 - $61,822 p.a., leave loading, and up  
to 17% employer’s contribution to superannuation (Australian  
retirement funds).
