Job Description:

Up to fifteen postdoctoral positions in physics and engineering in Australia are open now to women, gender diverse, and Indigenous applicants.
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems (TMOS) brings together five Australian and 13 leading international universities as well as Australian and global companies to create entirely new optics-based technologies with enormous market potential. The Centre has received $34.9 million funding from the Australian Research Council to operate from 2020-2027.
TMOS will develop the next-generation of miniaturised optical systems with functionalities beyond what is conceivable today. Please visit the TMOS website for more information about our research:
TMOS aims to develop a multidisciplinary, dynamic, interactive and collaborative culture fostering future research leaders who thrive in academic excellence and are equipped with strong transferable skills. The Centre will also offer a mentoring program for early career researchers while providing opportunities to hone other skills such as outreach, industry engagement, and building international networks. Along with other initiatives, we will provide carer grants to support our centre members with caring / family responsibilities to participate in professional activities.
Diversity: As a Centre, we strongly believe that diversity improves ideas and innovation and leads to better outcomes and productivity. Diversity and fostering a culture of inclusiveness will be a key contributor to the scientific excellence of TMOS. 
This recruitment round is a special measure to increase the representation of underrepresented groups in the disciplines of physics and engineering; specifically women and Indigenous Australians. Unfilled positions in this round will be re-advertised and open to a broader pool of applicants.
Women and gender diverse people may apply. Indigenous Australians of any gender may apply. No other applications will be considered in this round. Applicants must have a PhD (or will soon complete a PhD) in science or engineering.
How to Apply:
Visit the TMOS website ( to the corresponding university advertisement. Please note that all applicants are required to respond to a set of ‘Selection Criteria’, which are specific to each university, in addition to supplying their CVs. Applicants are welcome to apply to multiple universities.
Please note that offers may be conditional on Australian working rights and/or the ability for the candidate to relocate to Australia. Flexible working conditions and start date from 1 Jan 2021 are negotiable.
The advertised positions are open across five universities. Applicants must apply to these roles separately, based on their specific skills and preferences. While a successful applicant will be located at a single university, they will work collaboratively across all participating organisations.
