Bromley Group at UQ --- Prospective Students / Jobs

I welcome all enquiries to undertake research projects spanning atomic, molecular and optical physics based around theoretical quantum physics and many of which will demand/teach you high-performance computing skills. The research projects can be tailored around your skills and interests.

Project Overview --- Design of quantum measurement devices using cold atoms in exotic geometries

Project Overview --- High-precision fundamental atomic, molecular and optical physics

  • ASPinS research students.   You can get involved in research throughout your undergraduate degree.   Probably unpaid but will involve a flexible schedule.
  • Do a PHYS3900 Capstone project with me
  • Do a SCIE3250 project (application deadlines are well before the semester starts).
  • UQ summer research scholars, we especially invite applicants to apply for a UQ summer research scholarship to stay/visit us at UQ for a summer to get a taste of research in south-east Queensland. Students already at UQ can also do this.
  • Informal undergraduate summer research students.   You can get an introduction to research the summer between your 2nd/3rd years.   Probably unpaid but will involve a flexible schedule during semester break.
  • Honours students.  We have a range of projects that are suitable for honours.  You can even trial a research project in the summer between your 3rd/4th years, giving you a head-start on your honours year.
  • (domestic) Ph.D. students.  We are looking for expressions of interest for highly-motivated domestic students from Australia and NZ students *. To be competitive for APA/UQ domestic scholarships you will need to have/will get 1st-class honours.  For oz/NZ students we have our Postgrad Info Days for two days in September... otherwise prospective interstate students can visit UQ for a day any other time of the year through the Visit UQ Programme.
  • (international) Ph.D. students.  We are looking for expressions of interest for highly-motivated international students *.  To be competitive for IPRS/UQ international scholarships a Masters degree is generally required before application, along with at least one refereed journal publication accepted for publication.
  • Postdoctoral Positions: the UQ Centre for Quantum Atom Optics holds a number of research grants and from time-to-time we advertise research associate/fellow positions.
  • Postdoctoral Fellowships: we also welcome researchers with a recent Ph.D. in a research field related to ours that exhibit a significant impact to apply through us for UQ Fellowships, UQ Womens Fellowships, or ARC Fellowships (such as DECRAs and Future Fellowships).  These are all ultra-competitive schemes, and require the collaborative development of a substantive research proposal*.

* You should approach us at least a month ahead of any advertised internal UQ School of Maths/Physics deadlines which may be earlier than the advertised UQ Graduate Office / UQ Research Office deadlines (which are often much earlier than the actual Fellowship deadlines).
