Applications are now being accepted for a highly motivated, gas-phase, molecular spectroscopist for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Prof. T.C. Steimle at Arizona State University. The desired starting date is March 1, 2018 at salary of $50K/yr. The individual will direct a project entitled “The Identification and Characterization of Ephemeral Molecules Relevant to Fundamental Physics” recently funded by the Heising-Simons Foundation. This laboratory-based spectroscopic project focuses on the generation and characterization of heavy metal-containing polyatomic molecules (e.g. YbOCH3) which have been proposed as venues for detecting permanent electric dipole moments (EDM). Candidates should have a penchant for experimental studies utilizing molecular beam instrumentation, experience with tunable laser systems and be well versed in the application of molecular quantum mechanics. This is an excellent opportunity for an individual to advance his or her career in a well-funded, highly productive research environment. Responsibilities will include mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, and writing reports and manuscripts.
Interested individuals should send curriculum vitae, a statement of career goals, and three references to: Prof. T.C. Steimle, School of Molecular Sciences, Arizona State University, Tempe, 85287,USA TSteimle@ASU.edu
