Open Positions

IUPUI Department of Physics administrative, faculty, and staff employment opportunities will be listed below when available

Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Physics

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on an NSF funded project to measure the gravitational constant (Big G). Since this is a collaborative proposal between Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), Syracuse University and Humboldt State University, the successful candidate will be expected to effectively collaborate with a diverse group of faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, being able to lead students to perform their best. Occasional (once or twice a year) travel from IUPUI to the collaborating institutions will be needed. Career development support will be provided.

The candidate must have expertise in vibration and noise reduction techniques, and precision measurements and metrology. In addition, it is expected that the candidate will have knowledge of clean room techniques, computer programming and interfacing for data acquisition, and strong data analysis skills. Knowledge of FTIR, SEM, neutron scattering and optical metrology approaches are a plus.

A Ph.D. completed 5 or fewer years ago in Physics or directly related area is required. The starting salary will be very competitive and commensurate with the candidate's expertise. The benefit package provided by Indiana University is very attractive (http://hr.iu.edu/benefits). The position is for one year and renewable for up to two additional years.

Interested? Please send questions or your CV (with list of publications and 3 references) to: Prof. Ricardo Decca, rdecca@iupui.edu. Applications will be reviewed immediately and will be accepted until the position is filled.
