Postdoctoral Research Associate/Research Fellow in Optical Signal Processing

The Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) group at the University of Sydney currently has a vacancy for an experienced researcher in the field of optical signal processing for coherent communication systems working in the Terabit per Second (Tb/S) flagship project. This is one of six flagship projects in this Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence. The Tb/S project aims to address the limitations of optical bandwidth, footprint and energy efficiency in next generation communication systems by developing compact optical chip signal processors that harness nonlinear propagation effects to enable broadband wavelength conversion, parametric amplification, phase conjugation, and signal distortion compensation in long distance fibre links. Novel techniques and methodologies will be developed to process higher bit rate signals encoded with advanced modulation formats and polarisation multiplexing.

developing a research program in optical signal processing and related areas
preparing and presenting scientific results in papers and conferences
supervising undergraduate and graduate research students
assisting in recruitment of research students
assisting in management and planning of the CUDOS Tb/S program.

a PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering or a related discipline
a research track record in optical communications and/or photonic signal processing with substantial research experience in optical communications
published research as sole author or in collaboration.
demonstrated skills in experimental guided wave optics, nonlinear optical propagation experiments and optical communication systems
experience in presenting seminars at research institutions and conferences
excellent oral and written communication skills, including the capacity to work in a multi-skilled team
demonstrated ability to conduct research/scholarly activities under limited supervision either independently or as a member of a team
demonstrated ability to supervise students at undergraduate level
for appointment at Level B: substantive level of postdoctoral experience and strong evidence of independent research in addition to experience in supervision of research students.
Closing Date: 27 August 2014 (11.30pm Sydney time)
