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.
The minimum qualifications for this position are a Ph.D. or equivalent, postdoctoral experience or equivalent, scholarly publications, and experience with physics related to precision timing.
Candidates for this position are expected to have an outstanding research record and exhibit potential for effective teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The successful candidate is expected to develop a high quality, externally funded research program, as well as teach and mentor at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Applicants with academic, industrial, or government experience are encouraged to apply.
We will begin reviewing applications on 1 November 2017, and the review process will continue until the position is filled.
Applications should consist of a resume, including descriptions of the applicantís accomplishments, a complete list of publications including citations, a research statement, and a statement of teaching philosophy.
Applicants should also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be sent electronically to Prof. Adam Hauser at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to Prof. Adam Hauser, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Box 870324, Tuscaloosa, AL, 35487.
Applications must be submitted online at the University of Alabama website
