Job Description

Atomic, Molecular and Atomic Physics related to Precision Timing

Physics and Astronomy Department
University of Alabama

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Alabama invites applications for an interdisciplinary tenure-track position in atomic, molecular, and atomic physics related to precision timing at the full or associate professor level.

We are especially interested in candidates who specialize in one of the following areas: (1) atomic clock development, including both microwave and optical clocks and related technologies such as ultra-high vacuum systems; (2) metrology for precise timing applications, including measurement systems, modeling of noise processes, and associated statistical methods; and (3) realization and optimization of time scales based on aggregating ensembles of atomic clocks. Highly-qualified candidates with specialization in closely-related fields will also be considered.

This position is intended to start a new program in precision timing.

The appointment will begin August 16, 2018.

In addition to faculty working in experimental and theoretical particle and condensed matter physics, we have related research groups in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Materials for Information Technology, as well as an opportunity to interface with UAís growing Transportation Center. Tuscaloosa is also home to Microsemi Corporationís hydrogen maser research and development center.

More information about the department can be found on the departmentís website physics.ua.edu.
