Salary (FTE):Academic Research Level A4 ($81,545.80 - $87,535.13)
Work type:Full Time - Fixed Term
Location: St Lucia, Brisbane

School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences

The Centre for Organic Photonics and Electronics (COPE) draws together expertise from Chemistry and Physics in a combined facility ( COPE has >30 senior research staff, postdoctoral fellows and research students and is housed in newly refurbished laboratories on the 9th Floor of the Chemistry building that include state-of-the-art synthesis and materials characterisation facilities; a Class 1000 clean room incorporating gloveboxes with integral evaporators for device fabrication; and prototype measurement capability. The laboratory is located on the St. Lucia campus, one of the most spacious and attractive university campuses in Australia. The Centre has extensive experimental and theoretical research programs in optoelectronic organic materials for organic photovoltaics, organic light emitting diodes, organic field effect transistors, light emitting transistors, and circuit elements.

This Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is directly associated with the Australia-India Strategic Research Funds (AISRF) project and aims to develop lighting technology based on organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), and photo-sensor technology based on solution processed semiconductors. The project is at the frontier of the multidisciplinary field of organic-inorganic opto-electronics and has the potential for impact across a broad range of science and technology.

The role

The appointee will conduct research related to an AISRF project that aims to develop (design, synthesise and characterise) new organic chromophores/semiconductors for light-emitting and light-absoprtion techonlogies. The candidate is also expected to contribute to the production of scholarly papers for publication in peer-reviewed academic journals.

The person

Applicants should possess a PhD or post-doctoral experience in a relevant area of organic chromophores/semiconductors. The ideal candidate has expertise in creating new light-emitting and/or light-absoprtion organic semiconducting materials (for OLEDs, organic photo-detectors).


This is a full-time, fixed term appointment for 2 years at Academic Research level A. The remuneration package will be in the range $81,545 - $87,535 p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of up to 17% (total package will be in the range $95,408 - $102,416 p.a.)
