Minimum Preferred Qualifications: The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Alabama invites applications for an interdisciplinary tenure-track position in atomic, molecular, and atomic physics related to precision timing at the full professor level. We are especially interested in candidates who specialize in one of the following areas: (1) atomic clock development, including both microwave and optical clocks and related technologies such as ultra-high vacuum systems; (2) metrology for precise timing applications, including measurement systems, modeling of noise processes, and associated statistical methods; and (3) realization and optimization of time scales based on aggregating ensembles of atomic clocks. Highly-qualified candidates with specialization in closely-related fields will also be considered. This position is intended to start a new program in precision timing. The appointment will begin August 16, 2017. In addition to faculty working in experimental and theoretical particle and condensed matter physics, we have related research groups in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Materials for Information Technology, as well as an opportunity to interface with UA's growing Transportation Center. Tuscaloosa is also home to Microsemi Corporation's hydrogen maser research and development center. More information about the department can be found on the department's website physics.ua.edu. The minimum qualifications for this position are a Ph.D., postdoctoral experience, scholarly publications, and experience with physics related to precision timing. Candidates for this position are expected to have an outstanding research record and exhibit potential for effective teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate is expected to develop a high quality, externally funded research program, as well as teach and mentor at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
