Physics: Assistant Professor in experimental quantum optics/quantum information, to join the Macklin Quantum Information Science group in the Physics Department at Miami University. Responsibilities include teaching at the undergraduate and master’s levels; establishing a productive, externally funded research program; contributing to professional service.
Require: Ph.D. in physics or a related discipline by date of appointment; research must complement ongoing quantum optics/quantum information research in the Department. Consideration will be given to candidates who demonstrate strong interest in undergraduate and graduate education, including both classroom teaching and student research mentoring.
Consideration will be given to candidates who overlap with at least one of the following areas: general issues of quantum coherence, non-equilibrium phenomena and quantum control; cooling and trapping of atoms and ions for exploration of small systems of entangled particles and quantum degenerate physics; cold atomic gases in tailored potentials or interfaced with opto-mechanics for robust "atomtronic" devices that perform in noisy environments. An interdisciplinary research component that overlaps with our other focus areas (condensed matter/nano physics and biophysics) is encouraged.
Submit cover letter, research statement, teaching philosophy, curriculum vitae to https://miamioh.hiretouch.com/job-details?jobID=3456 Letters of recommendation will be requested from the professional references listed.
For inquiries about posting, contact Dr. Herbert Jaeger at PHYsearch@miamioh.edu Screening of applications will begin November 15, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled.
