CGA is seeking to appoint an experimental physicist in developing optical instrumentation for precision interferometry for the science goals related to gravitational-wave detection techniques for LIGO and third-generation gravitational wave detectors such as NEMO and Cosmic Explorer. This position is at level B/C equivalent of the US tenure-track Assistant Professor.
The successful candidates should have a PhD in gravitational wave instrumentation. Desirable skills are optical interferometry for current and future ground-based gravitational wave detectors, quantum and non-linear optics and development of squeezed light sources for applications in gravitational wave detection. Experience in science outreach and teaching is highly regarded.
