A Postdoctoral Fellowship appointment at ITAMP is made each year to support a promising scientist who has recently received a Ph.D. degree to carry out research in all areas of theoretical atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) Physics. The Fellowship is for two years with possible renewal for a third year. The successful applicant must demonstrate independence to pursue research in topical areas of interest in AMO physics, including ultracold atomic and molecular few- and many-body physics, quantum gases, quantum and non-linear optics, atoms and molecules in strong fields, atomic and molecular astrophysics, quantum information science and simulations, and laboratory cosmology. Applicants should state clearly why they believe that their professional goals would be furthered through the Fellowship. Applicants are expected to demonstrate capability for original research and for first-author refereed publications in major physics journals. The applicants should have received a Ph.D. degree up to a year before the nominal start date of September 2024.

The deadline for submission of all application materials, including letters of reference, is Monday, November 27, 2023.

The Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (ITAMP) is the premier institute for theoretical studies in atomic and molecular and optical physics in the United States and is funded by the U. S. National Science Foundation. Located at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian, ITAMP supports a prestigious postdoctoral program, hosts workshops and conferences and has an active visiting fellowship program.
