Postdoc Position in Experimental Chemical Physics

Come work in a vibrant, collaborative, and interdisciplinary group at a world-leading research institute located in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains!

Applications are being accepted for a post-doctoral position to work on a project to study chemical reactions of sympathetically cooled and trapped molecular ions with cold neutral radicals. The results from these experiments have implications for astrochemistry, as well as fundamental molecular physics. The successful candidate will have a PhD in physical chemistry, molecular physics, or related field. Previous experience and expertise with laser spectroscopy, molecular beams, and chemical dynamics are desired, but not required. Good oral and written communication skills are strongly valued.
