There is a current opening to carry out development of precision optical systems for metrology of dynamical mechanical systems, in the Dynamic Motion Project at NIST (Mass and Force Group, Quantum Measurement Division, Physical Measurement Lab). The goals are to develop quantum-limited low-timing-jitter MHz-bandwidth optical measurements of acceleration, pressure and force. This work seeks to build on developments of record-setting interferometry and advances in optomechanics at NIST.
