research associate positions at University of Adelaide
The University of Adelaide node of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Gravitational wave Discovery (OzGrav) is inviting applications for:
- A Senior Research Associate/Research Associate to undertake research at the University of Adelaide node and at the aLIGO sites in Washington state and Louisiana. Their research will focus initially on the continued development and commissioning of aLIGO and the development of adaptive wavefront control techniques for these detectors. The successful candidate will be expected to spend extended periods of time at the LIGO observatories (LHO and/or LLO as required), participating in detector commissioning and operation a Postdoctoral Fellow position (Academic Level A/B) on instrumentation for gravitational wave detection. See here for the full advertisement on the UAdel website.
- A Research Associate to undertake research into the development of high-power continuous-wave lasers with wavelengths of ca. 2 micron for next-generation gravitational wave detectors. Initial research will focus on fiber-based master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) systems and the development of diagnostics for high-precision characterization of their noise and stability.
