The Princeton University Physics Department seeks exceptional recent Ph.D. recipients in experimental physics for an honorific postdoctoral fellowship program. The scholars will be “Dicke Fellows” in recognition of Princeton physicist Robert Dicke. Nominees 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 16, 2012.
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 aims to select two postdoctoral research scholars. In addition to salary and benefits, the program will provide a discretionary fund of $7,500 per year for each scholar, which can be used for research-related expenses. 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.
Princeton University is an Equal Opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations. The Physics Department is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and particularly welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
