Our group is located at The University of Queensland, which has a high concentration of world-class researchers in the area of quantum technology and excellent research infrastructure. The University is located in Brisbane, a vibrant city with access to a wonderful sub-tropical outdoors environment; including the Great Barrier Reef, the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, hiking, and tropical rainforests.

We currently have a number of open research opportunities, as listed below. If you are interested or have any questions, please email Prof. Bowen.

PhD projects

The group is currently offering PhD projects in a range of areas including quantum opto-mechanics, optomechanical magnetometry and biological quantum imaging.

equity and diversity awards

Through EQUS (the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems), we can apply for financial support for primary carers, and researchers wishing to re-enter academia. If you are interested in an equity award, discuss it with us, or find out more here.

postdoctoral fellowships

We often have grant funding available for postdoctoral fellowships, and are always looking for well qualified postdocs to join the group. We are particularly interested in researchers who have direct experience in the fields of quantum optics, quantum optomechanics or biophysics and imaging; and have relevant skills in micro-/nanophotonics, micro-/nanofabrication, microscopy, precision measurement and/or cryogenics. Please direct enquiries to Prof. Bowen.

Postdoctoral fellowships are also available through a number of external and UQ schemes, including:
