Position Available – Research Associate ‘High Performance Clock Facility’
Job Reference Number: 18207
The Precision Measurement group at IPAS, through the School of Chemistry & Physics, has recently secured funding from the Australian Research Council (ARC) for the development of a high performance clock facility to disseminate a precise timing reference to all labs both to provide an ultra-stable reference time scale to all measurements as well as develop applications in low noise radar and VLBI radio-astronomy. We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher with a background in physics or engineering to assist in the development of the facility and the dissemination and synchronization of the signals generated.
You should have:
- A PhD or equivalent degree in the relevant area of expertise, e.g. physics, electrical engineering, or engineering related to time standards (or thesis submitted for same)
- A demonstrated publication track record in leading scientific journals and conferences
- The ability to conduct independent research and to work effectively as a member of a research team. Good verbal and written communication skills and interpersonal skills.
- Research experience in one or more of the following: experimental physics or engineering discipline, resonators, oscillators, cryogenics, COMSOL, low phase noise frequency synthesis is desirable.
