The Princeton University Physics Department seeks exceptional recent Ph.D. recipients in experimental physics for an honorific postdoctoral fellowship program. Candidates from all areas of experimental physics will be considered and selected through an annual competition. Applications will be reviewed as they arrive. To ensure full consideration, all materials must be received by November 14, 2016.
The selected scholars are expected to work with the existing experimental groups in the department, although those who wish to pursue a specific independent research program will also be considered. Princeton has experimental research programs in Atomic Physics, Biophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Cosmology & Gravitation, High Energy Physics, and Particle Astrophysics.
This year the Physics Department will select two candidates for these positions. Appointments, to be made at the rank of Associate Research Scholar, will be annual with the expectation of renewal for two additional years subject to satisfactory performance. The scholars will be “Dicke Fellows” in recognition of Princeton physicist Robert Dicke. In addition to salary and benefits, the program will provide a discretionary fund of $9,000 per year for each scholar.
Candidates must submit a CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the contact information for three referees. Finalists will be invited to Princeton to give a research talk.
Candidates who are not selected for a Dicke position will be considered for other postdoctoral positions in the Department.
