The Experimental Atomic, Molecular, and Quantum Optics (AMQO) group, in collaboration with Experimental Nuclear and Hadronic Physics group, in the Department of Physics at William & Mary invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate. The position is for two years, renewable each year based on performance and funding availability.
This primary responsibility for the postdoctoral associate is a novel charged particle detector based on coherent light-atom interactions.
The candidate will also support the current research efforts of the AMQO group focused on developing novel sensors and measurement techniques based on Quantum Information Sciences (QIS) approaches. Existing experiments use warm and ultra-cold atomic vapors and require expertise in spectroscopy, quantum simulations, lasers, quantum optics, vacuum and laser systems.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. by the starting date and have expertise in an area relevant to the group’s research program. These include hardware, data acquisition and analysis and simulation. Familiarity with experimental techniques using Rydberg atoms is also desired but not required.
Candidates must apply online at (https://jobs.wm.edu/postings/40640) and submit a cover letter to include research interests, a curriculum vitae and the contact information for three references.
Review of applications will begin March 16, 2021, and continue until the position is filled.
William & Mary values diversity and invites applications from underrepresented groups who will enrich the research, teaching and service missions of the university. William & Mary is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and encourages applications from women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities. William & Mary conducts background checks on applicants for employment.
