The ANU Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics undertakes a world-leading role
for Australia in the science and technology of gravitational wave discoveries.
The centre strategically unifies the ongoing research at ANU Research School
of Physics and ANU Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. CGA hosts
the ANU Node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational-wave
Discovery (OzGrav), and conducts research on high precision laser
interferometry for gravitational wave detection and other applications.
CGA is a team of experimental and theoretical physicists, engineers, and
astronomers who work collegially towards their shared goal of advancing
gravitational wave astrophysics research and translating the science and
technology to a wide range of high-precision measurement applications. We
thrive on learning and advancing together. We value equity and diversity and
implement action-oriented strategies toward fostering an inclusive, diverse,
welcoming and respectful culture in our workplace where everyone can bring
their whole self to work and flourish.

CGA is seeking to appoint an experimental physicist in developing optical
instrumentation for precision interferometry for the science goals related to
gravitational-wave detection techniques for LIGO and third-generation
gravitational wave detectors such as NEMO and Cosmic Explorer. This position
is at level B/C equivalent of the US tenure-track Assistant Professor.
The successful candidates should have a PhD in gravitational wave
instrumentation. Desirable skills are optical interferometry for current and
future ground-based gravitational wave detectors, quantum and non-linear
optics and development of squeezed light sources for applications in
gravitational wave detection. Experience in science outreach and teaching is
