The University of Chicago's Institute for Molecular Engineering (IME) seeks a creative, highly motivated Laboratory Instructor for its Experimental Quantum Laboratory. The successful applicant will lead an effort to design, assemble, and teach a set of advanced laboratories focused on experimental quantum science, in conjunction with related lecture classes. These laboratories will be taken by University of Chicago undergraduates enrolled in the IME's undergraduate B.S. program. Topics will include optics; microwave engineering; semiconductor devices; advanced instrumentation; and labs covering fundamental quantum science experiments and including numerical modeling. The successful candidate will be able to design and construct compelling instructional experimental setups; generate clear and compelling teaching materials; work effectively with faculty, staff and students from a variety of diverse backgrounds; and plan and pursue expansion of the lab facilities.

The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable pending satisfactory performance, with longer contract periods available in subsequent years. Minimum qualifications include a PhD in physics, electrical engineering, a related field, or in science education; experience with scientific instrumentation; evidence of strong communication skills. Applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, names of three professional references to be contacted separately for letters, and a 3-5 page writing sample describing three distinct quantum experiments that could be taught as part of the lab. Each topic covered in the writing sample should include: details of the experimental setup; learning goals; measurements to be performed; how results will be reported.
