Ultracold matter group Peter Schauss Department of Physics, University of Virginia

Open Positions

We currently have openings: If you are interested in working with us do not hesitate to contact Peter Schauss at pschauss@virginia.EDU. We are currently looking for graduate students motivated to start the new lab. Information for propective graduate students can be found at www.phys.virginia.edu/GraduateBrochure.
Excited about working in the field of ultracold atoms? Just ask for possibilities to join as visiting researcher, summer student, exchange student etc. Postdoc applicants from Europe are encouraged to apply for funding through Marie Curie Global Fellowship Program.
Also, we are always looking for bright, motivated undergraduates and high school students to work on projects involving optics, electronics, ultrahigh vacuum, software design and basic quantum physics. Please send an email to Peter Schauss.

Exemplary projects:
  • Laser system for laser cooling
  • Setup and design of the ultrahigh vacuum chamber
  • Magnetic field stabilization
  • Computer control system for the experiment
  • Small theory projects
