TTU Post Doctoral Rsch Assoc Lubbock 22107BR Physics
Position Description Performs specialized Post Doctoral work in the planning, conducting and/or supervision of original research. Responsible for participating in a research project associated with PhD studies and the interpretation of the results of publication. Work is performed under supervision of graduate faculty members with evaluation based on accomplishment of assigned objectives and overall effectiveness of project. May supervise research and student assistants.
Major/Essential Functions The position will involve the study of topological phases of matter and/or strongly correlated systems in one and two dimensions. A particular focus of this work will be on light-matter coupling as a probe of such systems and/or the realization of analogs in networks of superconducting circuit elements or photonic devices. Goals of this work range from addressing fundamental questions about these phases of matter to potential applications to quantum information.
Required Qualifications PhD in area of project specialization Knowledge of modern research practices, the methods, resources, and standards thereof. Ability to organize work effectively, conceptualize and prioritize objectives and exercise independent judgment based on an understanding of organizational policies and activities. Ability to integrate resources, policies, and information for the determination of procedures, solutions and other outcomes. Ability to establish and maintain effective work relationships with other employees and the public. Ability to plan and allocate the workload of employees, providing direct training and supervision as needed.
Preferred Qualifications A Ph.D. in Physics or a related field is required. The successful candidate will have expertise in topological systems and/or strongly correlated electron systems as demonstrated by a strong publication record. A background in superconductivity, quantum optics, or numerical methods is desirable but not required. The candidate should also have an interest in helping to mentor undergraduate or graduate students in research.
