Yale-NUS College is a highly selective liberal arts and science college in Singapore. Co-founded by Yale University and the National University of Singapore, the College is committed to excellence in research and teaching in a full residential programme that integrates living and learning. Its curriculum educates students in Asian and Western intellectual traditions as well as current scientific thought.
Assistant Professor Ben Olsen is seeking to hire a motivated and independent candidate as a Research Fellow for a duration of two years, starting in August 2022.
The Research Fellow will design and implement optical and electronic systems for the control of laser beams for a few applications. The primary project will require programmable beam shaping and deflection for photo-activated control of catalytic chemical reactions, using lasers in the visible and UV. Another project requires frequency-stabilized laser beams for the cooling and trapping of atomic lithium, with frequency and intensity control.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Physics or Optical Engineering, and at least 5 years of relevant research experience. They will have experience with lasers and optical systems, and a familiarity with optics simulation software is preferred.
