The School of Physics of the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for a faculty position in Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) Physics and related areas in Quantum Information Sciences (QIS), beginning Fall 2020. Appointments at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level will be considered, depending on qualifications. Both experiment and theory candidates are sought in all areas of AMO science including but not limited to: quantum sensing, computing, devices, or technology. We will also consider candidates whose research uses AMO technologies or concepts with other physical platforms. The new faculty member will benefit from Georgia Tech’s existing strengths in cold atom physics, quantum condensed matter and quantum engineering efforts across the Institute. Successful applicants are expected to contribute significantly to both our research and our educational goals.
The School of Physics is situated at the heart of the Georgia Institute of Technology campus in Midtown Atlanta and benefits from its association with a vibrant, global metropolis. We strongly encourage applications from women and members of traditionally under-represented minority groups. Georgia Tech, a unit of the University System of Georgia, is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
Applicants should upload (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, and (3) a research and teaching statement, (4) three letters of reference at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/13862. Review of complete applications will begin November 1st , 2019 and continue until the position is filled. Inquiries may be addressed by email to Prof. Chandra Raman, Chair of the Search Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
About Georgia Institute of Technology
Welcome to the School of Physics!
• To perform frontier research in pure and applied physics, and areas of technological importance.
• To provide an outstanding educational experience for our students, the scientists and engineers of the 21st century.
• To provide the institutional knowledge base in physical science, and to disseminate our current knowledge through interaction with other research units, the academic world and the community at large.
The School of Physics offers programs of study leading to B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The School is comprised of 36 faculty members, 123 undergraduate majors (one of the largest programs in the United States) and 109 graduate students.
The Howey Physics Building is comprised of 26,000 sq. ft. of instructional space (classrooms and laboratories), 156,000 sq. ft. of research laboratory space, and adequate office space for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and visitors.
The School of Physics offers Bachelors degrees in Physics or Applied Physics. A core of technical courses is intended to give a strong background in mathematics and the physical principles of mechanics, electricity and magn...etism, thermodynamics, and quantum theory. The School of Physics also offers programs of study leading to certificates in Applied Optics; Atomic, Molecular, and Chemical Physics; and in Computer Bases Instrumentation.
The graduate curriculum in the School of Physics provides the background and training needed to conduct and complete high quality, world-recognized research. Moreover, owing to the experiences we offer for supervised teaching of undergraduate laboratory courses, graduate students from diverse backgrounds develop into creative physicists who can function effectively in educational, industrial or government laboratory settings. Successful completion of the Ph.D. program in Physics requires (a) completion of course work, (b) participation in seminars and Special Problems, (c) acceptance into Ph.D. candidacy, and (d) thesis research.
Every faculty member of the School of Physics earned a Ph.D. degree and completed post-doctoral research positions prior to embarking on his or her independent academic careers. In addition, each member of the faculty teaches at both the undergraduate and graduate level on a regular basis. Both undergraduate and graduate students have free access to the faculty. Several faculty are involved with CETL (Georgia Tech’s Center for Enhancement of Teaching and Learning) and CEISMIC (Georgia Tech’s Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing). CETL offers courses that teach the graduate students how to teach. CEISMIC currently operates over 20 programs from K-12 students and/or teachers, partnering in the process with many of the Georgia public school systems and prominent educational agencies. These two Centers are available to students.
