The Applied Physics Division at NIST encourages qualified
postdoctoral researchers to design, fabricate, and test
superconducting single-photon detectors and associated readout
electronic circuits. We anticipate multiple open positions in
support of our existing efforts in superconducting nanowire
single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) and transition edges sensors
(TESs). One project involves crafting large arrays of
infrared-sensitive SNSPDs for hyperspectral imaging to support
machine vision applications in light-starved environments. Other
projects are focused on quantum information applications and
involve integrating SNSPDs with ion traps and optimizing the speed
of photon number-resolving TESs.
The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a
culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students
dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We
are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and
individuals with disabilities.
Who We Are
The Professional Research Experience Program (PREP) is a special
partnership between the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST) and the University of Colorado Boulder. PREP
provides research opportunities to CU undergraduate and graduate
students, as well as researchers with a Bachelor's, Master's, or
PhD in NIST labs to gain research experience alongside NIST
The particular group that needs a researcher is the Quantum
Nanophotonics Group under the Applied Physics Division at NIST.
What We Can Offer
The salary range is $65,900 - $93,200 and will be based upon
relevant background and experience.
The University of Colorado offers excellent benefits, including
medical, dental, retirement, paid time off, tuition benefit and ECO
Pass. The University of Colorado Boulder is one of the largest
employers in Boulder County and offers an inspiring higher
education environment. Learn more about the University of Colorado
