Job Description

The successful candidate will lead a team experimentally studying ultracold indium. The experiment consists of an ultrahigh vacuum chamber, electromagnets, and several laser systems in the blue and ultraviolet. The position involves leading PhD students with ample technical training to build scientific equipment and study ultracold quantum systems.

Job Requirements

The position requires a wide range of scientific and technical skills. The successful candidate will be required to study ultracold quantum phenomena, so this person must be familiar with quantum measurement, quantum dynamics, etc. The successful candidate must also be able to work with ultrahigh vacuum technology, design and build custom electronics (including embedded circuits), assemble optical systems, build diode lasers, work safely with high voltages, machine mechanical parts, and operate lab plumbing. Additionally, the successful candidate must be skilled at leading small teams of capable scientists and training new students to be technically proficient. The successful candidate must also be adept at scientific writing.
