Position Description:    

A postdoctoral researcher position in quantum VUV and EUV light generation at Indiana University Bloomington Title: Postdoctoral Fellow, physics Appointment Status: Non-tenure track Department: Department of Physics, Indiana University Bloomington Location: Bloomington, Indiana Position Summary: A postdoctoral fellow position is now available at the Department of Physics, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A. The project aims to explore potential pathways to generate quantum entangled and/or squeezed short-wavelength light sources (wavelength 1-100 nm), including vacuum- and extreme-ultraviolet (VUV and EUV) light. The overarching goal is to test the feasibility of several potential methods, based on quantum optics, nonlinear optics, and ultrafast optics, to experimentally explore how to generate VUV and EUV light carrying nonclassical properties. The properties include single-photon or Fock states, entangled states (in photon numbers, polarizations, wavelengths, and delay times), amplitude/phase squeezed states, and/or bright squeezed vacuum states of light. This experimental research will involve developing, creating, and characterizing various classical and quantum light sources, including the technologies used for near-infrared, visible, and ultraviolet, to VUV/EUV light. In this exciting role, you will work under the direction of Prof. Chen-Ting Liao and in collaboration with other researchers. For additional information visit: Department Contact for Questions: Questions regarding the position or application process can be directed to Prof. Chen-Ting Liao ( Basic Qualifications: • Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, optics/photonics, electrical engineering, or related fields at the time of appointment. • Ph.D. candidates in the ABO (all but dissertation) status will also be considered. • Good track record in scientific research and development. • Hands-on experience with pulsed lasers, optical setups, and vacuum technologies. • Experience with data analysis using Matlab, Python, etc. • Excellence in research and strong communication skills. • High degree of independence together with the ability to work in a collaborative environment. • Good working knowledge of written and spoken English. Additional Qualifications: • Good working knowledge and understanding of quantum optics and ultrafast optics. • Some experience of using software (Matlab, Python, LabVIEW) to automate experimental controls. • Some experience of using software such as SolidWorks for experimental setup designs. Salary and Rank: $45,000 - 55,000/yr, Postdoctoral Fellow. The initial appointment for this position will be for 12 months. Additional 12-24 month extensions will be available based on performance, mutual agreement, and funding. A competitive salary along with a benefits package will be offered. Expected Start Date: flexible (in 2024, but as early as 2/1/24). Applications will be reviewed starting on 1/15/24 and will continue until the position is filled. Required Documents: (1) Curriculum Vitae (including completed degrees, list of publications, research experience, and expertise), (2) Letter of Application (cover letter), (3) contact information of at least two references. Applications should be submitted through the application portal located at: Equal Opportunity Statement: The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive, and equitable community of students and scholars.
