The Department of Physics at Kansas State University is seeking a postdoctoral research associate in Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO)/Laser physics. We have a large and vibrant AMO group. The successful candidate will build on our recent success in the invention and development of Hollow-core Optical Fiber Gas LASers (HOFGLAS). Furthermore, this person will be involved in research in the use of optical frequency comb spectroscopy toward the detection or spectroscopic measurement of agriculturally interesting gases, which may involve the development of novel laser systems or spectroscopy techniques.
Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in physics, optics, or a related field by the time the position begins. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas: laser development (particularly optically pumped gas lasers), spatial mode analysis of lasers, power beam combining, optical frequency combs and laser frequency stabilization, optical trace gas detection, fiber lasers, and microstructured optical fibers.
The appointment will be a term appointment. The successful candidate(s) should also demonstrate a strong commitment to mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students and to serving a diverse population. Screening of applications will begin June 1, 2015 and continue until the positions are filled. Candidates should submit a letter of application and a vita including a list of publications to: email@example.com. Candidates should also arrange to have three letters of reference sent to the same address. For inquires about the position, please contact Assoc. Profs. Kristan Corwin and Brian Washburn.
