Rice University announces an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in ultracold atomic physics. The successful applicant will be a key member of an experimental program to use ultracold atomic fermions in optical lattices as a platform to realize strongly correlated many-body states of matter. The current goal is to realize a supersolid (FFLO superconductor) in the crossover region between one and three dimensions using fermionic lithium. This position offers an excellent opportunity to conduct research at the the highest levels of the exciting field of ultracold atomic gases.
A Ph.D. in relevant areas of experimental atomic or condensed matter physics is required. Qualified candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. R. Hulet (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information, or view http://atomcool.rice.edu.
Additional Salary Information: Competitive salary commensurate with experience
