Experimental atomic physics provides scientific and technical education that is second to none. Due to the rigor and broad scope of training in our branch of physics, alumni from our field typically move onto rewarding careers in academia, industry, and government. We are looking for bright young scientists who share our passion for physics and our motivation to do excellent research.
We are currently building new experiments, so this is a particularly good time to join our team. Building a new experiment is the very best training available in our field. Students and postdocs can expect to become proficient in quantum measurement, highly coherent lasers, laser cooling of atoms, photon detection, electronics, lasers, optics, computer programming, data analysis, theoretical modeling, and more.
Join us for your PhD
To apply for a PhD position with us, please introduce yourself to Travis via email and include your CV. Please also include a copy of your academic transcripts.
Join us for your postdoc
If you would like to join us for your postdoc, please email Travis and include your CV. Experience in experimental AMO physics is required.
Join us as an undergraduate
We typically have excellent projects available for motivated undergraduates. If you are interested in an FYP, do contact us early because FYP slots tend to fill up. We also have UROPS projects, and we are particularly interested in students who plan to stay with us through one (or more) UROPS semesters and an FYP. Aside from UROPS and FYP, there are other opportunities for undergraduates. Please email Travis for further details, and include a copy of your academic transcripts.
We occasionally have projects for engineering students, professional laboratory scientists, and more. Please email Travis to discuss these opportunities.
