An atom is cooled by a standing-wave light field between two high-quality mirrors. Cavity cooling avoids the usual light scatter into the surroundings. Instead, the light leaking out of the mirrors is blue-shifted to a higher frequency (image credit: Pepijn Pinkse Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics)

Postdoctoral Research Associate
A postdoctoral position is available for one year with the possibility of renewal contingent upon funding. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, or a related field, and a strong publication record. The project involves surface preparation and measurements of adhesion and friction at the nanometer scale on structured or patterned surfaces, using the Surface Forces Apparatus (SFA) technique and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). Qualified candidates should have a strong background in modification and characterization of surfaces. Previous experience, as established by publications, of either of the techniques mentioned above is desirable. The annual salary range for this full-time position is $32,000-$36,000, dependent upon experience and qualifications, with full benefits. Screening of applications will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should email a cover letter, curriculum vitae and a list of three professional references. This position is contingent upon funding.
