Postdoc openings: Laser Cooling and Trapping of Atoms at Los Alamos National Laboratory

Field(s): atomic physics, nuclear chemistry, laser physics, nuclear physics,
Job Description:
Postdoctoral Positions in Experimental Physics/Chemistry - PD016221

The Nuclear and Radiochemistry Group (C-INC) in the Chemistry (C) Division of Los Alamos National Laboratory is seeking postdoctoral candidates to perform research involving the optical and magnetic trapping of selected radioactive atoms. The successful applicant will join a multidisciplinary research team composed of atomic physicists, nuclear physicists, and nuclear chemists. Our research is concentrated on fundamental electroweak interaction measurements (beta-decay asymmetry and beta-neutrino correlations of polarized atoms) and on the sympathetic cooling and Fermi degeneracy studies of cold atoms. The ultra-sensitive detection and quantitative isotopic ratio measurements of selected species is also under development.

Applicants must be dedicated and have a strong background in experimental physics and/or chemistry with experience in using single-frequency lasers and in performing high-precision atomic spectroscopic measurements. Expertise in cold atom physics using laser and/or magnetic trapping techniques is highly desirable. A second postdoctoral opening is also available to candidates with a nuclear science background. In particular, we are interested in applicants with experience in mass separators, low-level beta and gamma counting, and nuclear structure or weak interaction physics.

For additional technical information, please contact Dr. Xinxin Zhao at xxz@lanl.gov or Dr. David Vieira at vieira@lanl.gov.

A Ph.D. completed within the last three years or soon to be completed is required. Candidates may compete for a Director's Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious J. Robert Oppenheimer, Richard P. Feynman or Frederick Reines Fellowships.
