About Professor Stephen Buckman AM

Professor Stephen Buckman joined the ARC in November 2016 as Executive Director for Physical Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics and Information Sciences.

Professor Buckman is a PhD graduate in Atomic Physics from Flinders University. Following postdoctoral positions at the University of Manchester and the University of Colorado, he returned to Australia in 1983 to take up a position in the Research School of Physics and Engineering (RSPE) at the Australian National University (ANU). Between 1996 and 2000 Professor Buckman was Head of Department of the Atomic and Molecular Physics Laboratories within the RSPE. Between 2002 and 2006 he was Deputy Director (Academic) in the RSPE and from 2006 to 2012 he was Research Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Antimatter-Matter Studies at ANU.

In 2012 Professor Buckman was appointed Director of the RSPE and remained in this position until his retirement from the ANU in July 2015.

In 2013 Professor Buckman was awarded an AM in the Order of Australia for significant service to science in the field of experimental atomic physics as a leading researcher, academic and author.
