Position Title: Department of Physics - Post-Doctoral Fellow
Job Description:

A Post-Doctoral Researcher is sought for a full-time position in the Department of Physics for a collaborative investigation with the University of Denver (DU). The project seeks to theoretically design and subsequently produce optical vortex structures that exhibit non-abelian anyonic behavior. This would have important implications for topological quantum computing using linear optics. Two post-doctoral positions are to be filled, and this one is for a quantum theorist.

The successful applicant will also work closely with experimentalists at DU and will provide mentorship to graduate and undergraduate students on the project.

Minimum Qualifications:
  • PhD in physics
  • Effective written and oral interpersonal skills
Preferred Qualifications:
  • Publication and innovation record, as proven by peer-reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings/presentations
  • Training and expertise in quantum field theory with application to topological quantum information processing
  • Training and expertise in quantum optics
  • US citizenship is preferred but not required
How to Apply:

Applicants will be asked to complete an online application (personal information, demographic information, three references, veterans status) and upload a resume and cover letter (required). References will not be contacted until later in the selection process and you will be informed before that contact is made.

Total Rewards: Starting salary will be determined by the qualifications of the selected applicant balanced with departmental budget availability, internal salary equity considerations, and available market information. Mines provides an attractive benefits package including fully paid health and dental insurance. Part of Mines' mission is to create a family-friendly environment supported through our dependent tuition benefits, parental leave benefits, and dependent care assistance plan, as well as in special events, camps, and programming.
