The Department of Physics at the University of Florida (UF) seeks a full-time, twelve-month, time-limited, non-tenure track Assistant/Associate Scientist in Low Temperature Physics to begin as early as January 2019, but certainly by April 2019. The successful candidate will be responsible for the operation of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory High B/T Facility at UF. The new faculty member will join a group of three staff members and five faculty who oversee and manage user experiments for the High B/T facility.
The High B/T facility operates two nuclear demagnetization stages equipped with high field magnets for conducting experiments at sub-millikelvin temperatures in fields up to 16 tesla and one “fast” turn-around dilution refrigerator for tests up to 10 tesla. Full information on the High B/T facility can be found at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory website (https://nationalmaglab.org/user-facilities/high-b-t-facility) and the Microkelvin Laboratory website (http://www.phys.ufl.edu/microkelvin). In addition to working with external and internal users, the successful candidate will be encouraged to seek external funding especially for advanced instrumentation support in collaboration with UF colleagues, and is expected to serve on committees in the Department of Physics.
The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) and have experience in low temperature technologies, including the use of dilution refrigerators. Postdoctoral research experience and experience in the use of nuclear demagnetization refrigerators is preferred. Demonstrated communication skills and the ability to work in a group environment are required. The appointment will be as Assistant Scientist or Associate Scientist depending on qualifications and experience. The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package.
Applications must be submitted online at https://apply.interfolio.com/55239 and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae with publication list, a research statement, and the names and contact information for three to five references. After initial review, applicants receiving further consideration will be asked to provide confidential letters of recommendation.
Complete applications should be received by October 31, 2018. For more information, please contact James Hamlin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution dedicated to building a broadly diverse and inclusive faculty and staff. Searches are conducted in accordance with Florida's Sunshine Law. The Department particularly welcomes applicants who can contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through their scholarship, mentoring, and professional service.

About University of Florida
The Department of Physics at the University of Florida has been working to become one of the premier physics departments in the United States. From a small department with 22 faculty members in 1979, we have grown to more than 50 faculty members. The department moved into a new, 225,000 sq. ft., building in January 1998. The building includes laboratory and teaching space designed specifically for the purpose.
The growth has broadened and strengthened the research interests of the department. We have active groups in astrophysics, biological physics, condensed matter physics, and elementary particle physics. Our faculty are internationally renowned in their areas of expertise at the various frontiers of physics and are recipients of numerous awards and honors.
The UF physics department operates the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory together with Florida State University, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, opening new research avenues for the exploration of new emerging materials and technologies. Members of the Department are also involved in many national, multi- institutional programs, such as the Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), and h...igh energy physics experiments conducted at Fermilab, and CERN. Members of the faculty are spokesmen both of LIGO and the CDF experiment at Fermilab, as well as playing leadership roles in the CMS experiment at CERN. The Institute for Fundamental Theory and the Quantum Theory Project provide the infrastructure needed to foster cross-disciplinary research among the theorists in our department.
