Application is ongoing for the Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics (ITAMP) in the US.
The Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics was established at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in order to address the critical shortage of theorists in atomic and molecular physics at major universities throughout the nation. The objectives of the Institute were and are:
- Attracting and training graduate students of the highest quality in theoretical AMO Physics;
- Maintaining an active visitor program to bring senior researchers together for varying lengths of time for scientific collaboration;
- Establishing a strong post-doctoral fellowship program as a source of potential University faculty.
A Postdoctoral Fellowship appointment at ITAMP is made each year to support a promising scientist who has recently received a Ph.D. degree to carry out research in all areas of theoretical atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) Physics.
The successful applicant must demonstrate independence to pursue research in topical areas of interest in AMO physics, including:
- ultracold atomic and molecular few- and many-body physics,
- quantum gases,
- quantum and non-linear optics,
- atoms and molecules in strong fields,
- atomic and molecular astrophysics,
- quantum information science and simulations, and
- atomic interactions on the nanoscopic scale.
Duration: 2-3 years
- An annual stipend of $67,000
- Allowance for health insurance
- Travel allowance.
The ITAMP Postdoctoral Program is designed for:
- Applicants expected to pursue research programs of their own conception and design, and they should state clearly why they believe that their professional goals would be furthered through research opportunities here.
- candidates whose interests and proposed research programs fall under any area of Theoretical Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics.
- Applicants expected to demonstrate their capability for original research through several first-author refereed publications in major physics journals
- Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in physics or any of the related fields.
