A post-doc position is currently offered at the Cold Atom Physics Lab of the University of Liège, Belgium. The position is available to a candidate with strong research background in experimental cold atom physics and experience with magneto-optical traps.
The position is open in the framework of a project aimed at studying magneto-optically trapped iron atoms - a totally innovative atomic species in cold atom physics. Iron atoms are highly dipolar and as such provide an interesting candidate for investigating fascinating physics such as quantum dipolar phases and quantum liquid crystal physics. Magneto-optical trapping of this atomic species has only very recently been demonstrated for the first time in our lab. Everything is innovative in this respect and plenty of experimental investigations are currently due. The post-doc position aims at taking part in these experiments and contributing to the regular improvement of the experimental setup. The post-doc will also be expected to contribute towards the long term goals of producing a first Bose-Einstein condensate of iron atoms.
Applicants should have, or be about to obtain, a PhD in atomic physics or a related field. To apply, please send a CV and arrange for 2 letters of recommendation to be sent to T.Bastin@uliege.be
