The InPAC Centre at RMIT University is offering a Research Assistant position in the area of photonic integrated circuits.

Photonic integrated circuits are transitioning from speculative research to a mature industrially scalable platform, transforming our daily lives by providing a solution to the ever-increasing demand for internet traffic and replace bulky and energy inefficient components in applications such as biosensing, communication and precision measurements. In this project, the team will go one step further and explore how photonic integrated circuits can be used for visual displays.

To pursue this project, RMIT is looking for a highly motivated and passionate recent PhD graduate to become part of the team. You will work with team members from diverse research backgrounds in the disciplines of material science, engineering, physics, chemistry and biology and have the opportunity to participate in our strong international collaborations to the US and Europe. During the project you will also have the opportunity to access world class facilities, such as the InPAC Photonic Systems Lab (, the world leading Micro Nano Research Facility ( ) and the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (

The Research Assistant position will initially be for a duration of 6 months but can be extend by one additional year.

They are particularly looking for someone that has:

  1. experience in design fabrication and characterization of integrated photonic circuits and is
  2. familiar with EBL, PECVD, LPCVD, ICP etching and other nano-micro fabrication tools (desirably at the MNRF or the MCN).
