Postdoctoral Position in Cold Atom/BEC Physics

Air Force Research Laboratory, Hanscom AFB

The Air Force Research Laboratory at Hanscom AFB, MA, seeks a candidate for a postdoctoral position in confined cold and ultracold atom interferometry research. Candidates will support experimental efforts in association with current research at AFRL (Bedford, MA). The goal of this research is to develop a microchip sized matter wave interferometer for the precision measurement of rotation.

The postdoctoral associate will be working on efficient transport of cold atoms from a MOT to the chip trap, designing chip traps and investigating dispersion control in waveguides, as well as modeling the phase coherence of BEC, the super-positions of cold atoms an the effects of various noise sources on phase coherence. This will be an NRC Associate's position, is dependent on the applicant getting a grade of A upon NRC review and is expected to have a term of 1-3 years based on projected funding levels. Please visit for information on salaries, benefits and application deadlines. Position will begin after 1 October 2009 or possibly before if funding is available.

Vitae and letters of recommendation should be sent to
Steven M. Miller, AFRL/RVBYM, 29 Randolph Rd., Hanscom AFB 01731-3010;
phone: (781) 377-2807.

AFRL is an Equal Opp-ortunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
