THIS IS A 100% GRANT FUNDED POSITION
Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Dr. Pati’s laboratory (OSCAR, A232) – This person will work on a DoD funded research project on cold-atom Raman clock and magnetometry, and spin-squeezing enhanced sensitivity. In particular, the person will plan, develop and conduct cold-atom based experiments, and report scientific progress to Dr. Pati. As part of the postdoc mentoring plan, this person will be responsible for purchasing and maintaining various equipment in the laboratory, assist in report writing, teach substitute lectures/laboratory sessions of classes, and provide training and guidance to undergraduate and graduate students working on the project.
Essential FunctionsPlan, develop and conduct experiments on cold-atom based Raman clock and magnetometry. This involves developing and operating cold-atom systems, atomic clock development using Raman-Ramsey technique, magnetometry using synchronous coherent population trapping, and developing experimental platforms for implementing spin-squeezing protocols in atomic clock and magnetometryDiscuss with Dr. Pati on a regular basis regarding the progress and outcome of the experimentsPrepare technical reports, and write manuscripts for publicationPurchase research supplies and equipment for project related experiments, and maintain various equipment in the laboratoryTeach substitute lectures and/or teach undergraduate laboratory sessions for classes, and assist in project report writing as part of postdoc mentoring by advisorProvide training, mentoring and technical guidance to undergraduate and graduate students working on the project
