Postdoctoral Fellow - Atomic Physics Physics Department
The College is pleased to announce an opening for a full-time (40 hours/week), two-year term position as a Postdoctoral Fellow with the possibility of renewal for a third year. Under the guidance of Professor Tiku Majumder, work in this laboratory focuses on high-precision diode laser spectroscopy of heavy atoms with the goal of testing atomic theory and testing fundamental physics. Further information regarding recent and ongoing research projects can be found at http://sites.williams.edu/pmajumde/.
The Postdoctoral Fellow position offers the additional opportunity for the applicant to become involved in the educational life of the Williams College Physics Department through interactions with undergraduate students in honors research projects, the teaching laboratory, or during the month-long January teaching term. The Physics Department at Williams graduates 15-20 majors per year, with more than half enrolling in Ph.D. programs in physics and related fields. The department features five experimental and four theoretical physicists, all with active research programs. Additional information can be found at http://physics.williams.edu/.
