Government and National Lab
Physics: Atomic and Molecular, Physics: Instrumentation and Measurement, Physics: Optics and Laser
The NIST Time and Frequency Division seeks a postdoctoral candidate in physics, electrical engineering, or a related discipline for innovative work on world-leading time and frequency systems.
The successful candidate will work in a division of about 100 scientists and engineers on a challenging program to develop innovative timing systems and frequency standards to meet the ever-increasing synchronization demands of a highly interconnected society.
A background in experimental physics/engineering is required. Experience in instrument design, optical systems and precision measurements, as well as a background in atomic physics are desirable.
Competitive salary, potential for future long-term position, work in a new $120 million advanced laboratory, and live in Boulder, CO, ranked as the second most livable city in the US.
The Time and Frequency Division, part of the NIST Physical Measurement Laboratory, maintains the standard for frequency and time interval for the United States, provides official time to the United States, and carries out a broad program of research and service activities in time and frequency metrology.
