Assistant Professor

Experimental Ultrafast AMO Physics

J.R. Macdonald Laboratory

Kansas State University 


The J.R. Macdonald Laboratory (JRML) in the Department of Physics at Kansas State University seeks a faculty member in an area of experimental ultrafast laser science who is expected to join the Lab's Department of Energy-funded efforts. An applicant's research focus should thus complement these efforts and fit within their AMO physics research theme. A brief description of current research and publications in the JRML can be found at http://jrm.phys.ksu.edu/.

The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Physics Department. The candidate must present credentials that will justify appointment at this level, including a Ph.D. or equivalent, in AMO physics or a related discipline.

The Department has outstanding experimental and theoretical AMO physics programs, directed by 11 faculty members. It has extensive laser and accelerator facilities in the JRML that are being used to address an array of forefront problems in AMO science.

The successful candidate should also demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring of students and to serving a diverse population.

Applications should be sent to JRML Search Committee, 116 Cardwell Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506-2601 or to jrmsearch@phys.ksu.edu. In addition to a curriculum vitae, applications should include statements of research and teaching interests. Applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference sent. Screening of applicants will begin on November 18, 2013, and continue until the position is filled. Background checks are required. Kansas State University is an affirmative action equal opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity among its employees. Background checks required.
