CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellowship in Superconducting Electronics/Electrical Engineering researchCSIRO
The Opportunity Do you have a PhD in physics, preferably superconductivity or condensed matter, electrical engineering? Work with a world-class research team of dedicated professionals Join CSIRO – Australia’s leading scientific research organisation 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. CSIRO is a world leader in creating quantum-based sensors constructed from high-temperature superconducting (HTS) Josephson junctions.
These sensors have applications in mineral exploration and communications due to their high sensitivity to magnetic fields and rapid response time. The successful applicant will play a key role in the development of commensurate analogue and digital signal processing capability, based on compatible junction technology. They will use their highly developed knowledge of electrical/electronic engineering and device physics to design, model and measure HTS-based analogue and digital elements for use in the signal processing chain.
They will require extensive experience in electronic design at the individual transistor level. Our ideal candidate will also have experience in superconducting device/circuit design and modelling, as well as signal processing skills. Effective communication skills at all levels, both orally and written are also important to the position, which involves interactions with researchers, engineers, technicians and industrial collaborators.
Your duties will include: Design basic logic circuits for logic elements based on HTS Josephson junctions and their parameters, to optimize circuit operation. Extend design to include building-block logic types based on arrays of logic elements. Developing techniques for logic circuit layout that are compatible with HTS fabrication limitations.
Direct the manufacture of the new logic circuits using our in-house fabrication facility. Evaluate their digital signal processing performance at cryogenic temperatures. Location: Lindfield, NSW Salary: AU$88k - AU$96k plus up to 15.
4% superannuation Tenure: Specified term of 3 years Reference: 76403 To be considered you will need: A doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD) in a relevant discipline area, such as physics, preferably superconductivity or condensed matter, electrical/electronic engineering. Please note: To be eligible for this role you must have no more than 3 years (or part-time equivalent) of postdoctoral research experience . Experience with theoretical modelling, physics background, programming skills Experience in electronics/electrical engineering, analogue and digital Signal processing skills Experience with circuit design and analysis, computational skills, logic design Knowledge of computer-aided design, signal conver....
