Experimental Microchip Trapping of BEC

position expired
Air Force Research Laboratory, Hanscom AFB, Massachusetts
The Air Force Research Laboratory at Hanscom AFB, MA, seeks a candidate for a potential full-time permanent position in experimental microchip Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) 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 ideal applicant should have expertise in laser cooling, trapping, and Bose-Einstein condensation, both theoretical and experimental. This position will be funded at the DR-II level ($68,000 - $105,000).

Vitae and letters of recommendation should be sent to Steven M. Miller, Senior Scientist, AFRL/VSBYM, 29 Randolph Rd., Hanscom AFB, MA, 01731-3010; email:; phone: (781)377-2807. AFRL is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

A qualified applicant will have a PhD in physics, be a US citizen, and possess expertise in atomic physics.
