  • Bring your expertise in superconducting qubits to an exciting project on quantum batteries
  • Collaborate with Australia’s leading scientists and government & industry partners
  • Join CSIRO – Australia’s Premier Science Agency – and grow your research career!

Quantum technology holds the potential to help solve some of society’s greatest challenges, such as accelerated development in healthcare, enhanced national security and defence, improved mineral exploration and water resource management, more secure communications, efficient energy storage, and exciting new technologies and incredibly powerful computation like quantum computing. That’s why, as Australia’s National Science Agency, CSIRO is committed to playing our role in this emerging industry by building infrastructure and research capability, and ensuring quantum produces equitable outcomes for society. In line with this, one of the key research initiatives in CSIRO is contributing to the experimental development of quantum batteries with circuit quantum electrodynamics (circuit QED), as they are expected to revolutionise energy storage.CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.Joining our talented, multi-disciplinary ‘Quantum Batteries’ research team in this exciting role, you will undertake research in the experimental development of quantum batteries with circuit QED, and will play a key role supporting the research project with experimentation and designing fabricating samples. On a regular basis, you will collaborate closely with lab staff and other researchers, and be responsible for building the necessary experimental setup and maintaining the standards, realising the measurement routines, and performing necessary data analysis. Despite being a development position, your role will be strategically important in CSIRO’s quantum strategy and enhancing our research capabilities in this domain. Therefore, this role also offers growth opportunities and a great platform to further develop your research.If you are looking to take the next step in your science career, are motivated by experimentation and trying out different approaches, and contributing to making a real difference with your work, we would love to hear from you! CSIRO champions in providing a diverse and inclusive culture, supports feasible flexible work arrangements, and offers you excellent professional development opportunities to grow your skills & career.Your duties will include:

  • Carrying out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
  • Recognising and exploiting opportunities for innovation and the generation of new theoretical perspectives, and progressing opportunities for the further development or creation of new lines of research.
  • Utilising design thinking methodology to plan and prepare research proposals, and applying non-academic impact methodology to research projects.
  • Carrying out research investigations requiring originality, creativity and innovation.
  • Recording, managing, and analysing data/information using relevant domain data science techniques.
  • Proactively undertaking development to grow effective researcher capabilities to support career goals.

Location: Brisbane (St Lucia), QLD and Melbourne (Clayton), VICSalary: AU$96K – AU$105K pa + up to 15.4% superannuationTenure: Specified Term of 3 yearsReference: 96579To be considered you will need:

  • A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD). The doctorate must be in a relevant field such as experimental quantum physics. (Please note: To be eligible for this role, you must have no more than 3 years (or part time equivalent) of relevant research experience.
  • Experience in one or some of the following areas: mK temperature microwave measurements, nanofabrication of quantum devices.
  • High level written and oral communication skills with the ability to represent the research team effectively internally and externally, including the presentation of research outcomes at national and international conferences.
  • A sound history of publication in peer reviewed journals and/or authorship of scientific papers, reports, grant applications or patents.
  • A record of science innovation and creativity, including the ability & willingness to incorporate novel ideas and approaches into scientific investigations.
  • Desirable: Demonstrated expertise in experimenting in circuit QED is highly desirable.
