The Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy (MCEM) ( is a central university research platform. MCEM conducts research and provides an advanced capability in electron microscopy to several hundred researchers from Monash University, other universities, government research agencies and industry, enabling the solution of research problems across the sciences and engineering (but generally not involving biological materials).

The MCEM has a suite of advanced instruments, including a FIB/ESEM, 3 FEG-SEMs, 4 TEMs including a double-aberration-corrected Titan3 80-300kV and a forthcoming next generation S/TEM FEG-TEM, plus a range of supporting computing, software and specimen preparation equipment. MCEM staff provide expert advice and training to researchers using the Centre. In addition, MCEM academic and research staff conduct their own specialised research programmes in fundamental and applied microscopy.

MCEM is located on the Clayton Campus in a dedicated electron microscopy building, specifically designed to provide exceptional mechanical, thermal and electro-magnetic stability to optimise instrument performance. It is adjacent to, and works closely with, the Monash Ramaciotti Centre for Cryo-Electron Microscopy, which includes a Titan Krios and Helios cryo-FIB system.

The Opportunity

The primary focus of the Electron Microscopist position is to manage and develop MCEM’s focussed ion beam capability and provide advanced expertise and training to support and enable the work of researchers using the centre.

Your advanced understanding of focussed ion beam/scanning electron microscope instrumentation and its operation and optimisation, together with your extensive expertise in the application of this instrumentation to the solution of complex research problems, will be critical to your role, as will outstanding communication and organisational skills. If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
