Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work. We’re a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what’s expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

The Opportunity

A Research Fellow is sought to join the X-ray Optics group within the School of Physics and Astronomy at Monash University. The School has cultivated a focused research program in theoretical, experimental and applied x-ray optics over the last 15 years, most recently with the appointment of Dr Kaye Morgan, who will supervise this Research Fellow. The Monash research group, including Prof David Paganin and Dr Marcus Kitchen, collaborates with physicists, medical researchers and engineers locally and internationally. The research group is situated in the New Horizons Research Centre, across the road from the Australian Synchrotron. This synchrotron includes the Imaging and Medical Beamline (IMBL), and will soon house a Micro Computed Tomography beamline.

As the Research Fellow, you will become an integral part of the X-Ray Optics research group. You will have the opportunity to conduct x-ray imaging experiments at synchrotron and laboratory sources, analyse images and perform simulations, publish in high impact journals, and become a trusted advisor, able to help post-graduate students with questions relating to your field of research.

About you:

As the successful candidate, you will have:

  • A PhD in Optical Physics or a related research area with a sound record of publication
  • Problem-solving capabilities and skills in planning and organisation
  • Strengths in verbal and written communication
  • The ability to work well independently and in a team
  • Ideally, but not exclusively, proficiency in coding, theory and/or experimental x-ray imaging

This is an ideal role for a researcher who wishes to apply their research skills in an area where research findings can be readily and relatively quickly translated into meaningful outcomes, in addition to traditional academic outputs.


With a diverse and supportive workforce, we also offer employment benefits such as salary packaging, staff development opportunities and on-site services such as gym, pool, bookshop, childcare, health service, food outlets, etc.

The Monash Club provides a vibrant, social, multi-purpose place to relax, meet, dine and/or work. We have a wide range of initiatives to support environmental sustainability, with a target to become carbon neutral by 2030.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Your application must address the selection criteria, and contain your current Resume with a cover letter that includes your vision for this role. This should include what you aim to achieve within the role and the key outcomes that will progress your career towards achieving your goals. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
