Applications are invited for a postdoc position in the group of Dr David Carty (Department of Physics, Durham University, UK, in the field of cold and ultracold molecules experiments, specifically on a project entitled Cooling molecules to microKelvin temperatures: Deceleration, trapping and sympathetic cooling for quantum simulation.

The position is for 2 years initially, but may be extendable, and is available from May 2013, or as soon as the applicant wishes to start. The funding places no restrictions on nationality, though it will be subject to the normal UK immigration rules.

The position is associated with a large EPSRC programme grant entitled MMQA: MicroKelvin Molecules in a Quantum Array, joint with other experimental groups (Dr Simon Cornish & Dr Eckart Wrede), and a theory group (Prof Jeremy Hutson FRS), at Durham and an experimental group at Imperial College London (Prof Ed Hinds FRS & Dr Mike Tarbutt). For brief details on the programme motivations please see the news item at or see for a more detailed description of the project itself.
