Research Fellow In Mesoscopic Transport

at University of Melbourne

School of Mathematics and Statistics Faculty of Science

Salary: $69,148 - $93,830 p.a. (Level A PhD entry level $87,415 p.a.) plus 9.5% superannuation

Located in the School of Mathematics and Statistics, this position is based in the applied mathematics group of Professor John Sader under the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science. The position focuses on developing computational and/or analytical frameworks for understanding the physics that underlies coupling of the optical, electrical, thermal and mechanical response of nanoscale devices, with focus on exciton transport. Of particular interest is departure from continuum treatments and how these pervade the response of these systems.

The incumbent is responsible for developing simulation techniques and/or implementing analytical methods to investigate these phenomena, such as matched asymptotic approaches, moment methods, molecular dynamics, density functional theory, Monte Carlo, lattice Boltzmann and other methods. Concurrently, the incumbent will undertake research relevant to the broader theory/experimental program of the new ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science and with other collaborators external to the University.
