Experimental Atomic Physics
An opening is available for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in experimental atomic physics with a focus on ultracold quantum gases under the direction of Professor Waseem Bakr. The successful candidate will participate in the development of a new experimental apparatus for optical microscopy of strongly-correlated topological phases of matter realized in optical lattices. The research will explore the physics of interacting bosonic and fermionic systems in synthetic magnetic fields and spin-orbit couplings, and the interplay of these phenomena with lower dimensional superfluidity. The postdoctoral researcher will be working with a team of graduate and undergraduate students. Candidates applying for the position should have a PhD in experimental atomic physics or a closely related field and must have experience with ultrahigh vacuum, optics and laser technology.
Applications should be submitted online at http://www.physics.princeton.edu/jobs. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and contact information for three references.
