The University of Sydney is now accepting applications for the Sydney Postdoctoral Fellowships. These are very competitive and prestigious university-wide fellowships, with terrific salary and benefits: a 3 year appointment with a A$99,000 annual salary and a A$25,000 discretionary research fund for travel, visitors, or equipment.
Because they are so competitive, you have to arrange for a faculty sponsor before applying. If you are interested in applying and joining the quantum physics group, then read the Sydney Postdoctoral Fellowship guidelines here:http://bit.ly/ZZ2r26. If you qualify, send me an email (sflammia at physics.usyd.edu.au) with a cover letter that briefly describes your qualifications and a short CV. In particular, please specify how you see yourself fitting in and complementing work within the rest of the quantum physics group at Sydney.
There are a few relevant deadlines: the deadline to secure a faculty sponsor is Friday 3 May, but the actual application deadline is 31 May, so you will have plenty of time to finish the application. However, because of the initial deadline, I will only consider applications before Tuesday the 30th of April.
