NOTE: this position listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Position Description

A PhD position for a keen chemistry/physical chemistry student.
Project is funded under the Discovery Project scheme from the Australian Research Council. The research project seeks to develop multielectrode arrays with a single wire. It is joint project between The University of new South Wales (School of Chemistry, Prof J. Gooding) and The University of Wollongong (Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, IPRI, Dr. Simone Ciampi).

The successful candidate will have a sound knowledge in General Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry and Electrochemistry. A good knowledge of the LabView language and semiconductor physics would be highly desirable but is not strictly required. He/she will be working on developing a mask-free electrochemical lithography, where a light stimulus is used to address charge transfer and hence address locally the growth of conductive features on semiconductor electrodes.

The successful applicant will be based at IPRI (University of Wollongong). A top up scholarship of $5000 per annum, over the base $24000 salary package (tax-free) , will be awarded when considerate adequate.

How to Apply

additional information on the project aims and goals are available and students are encouraged to actively participate in the project design. Please contact Dr Ciampi via Email (
