We employ an open research model that thrives on collaboration and fosters integrity among a team of talented international researchers. By attracting some of the world’s most distinguished minds with our pioneering research, we are able to tackle seemingly impossible problems, from physical warp travel to low-cost DIY life-saving innovations. At Applied Physics, we recognize that our ability to improve humanity is limited only by our imagination and passion. We are privately funded and require no outside capital, as our work sustains itself. Therefore, we have no red tape, politics, or archaic structures impeding us. By working with us, you become part of a vetted group of scientists and engineers delivering high-impact solutions on a global scale.
Every Friday, scientists from around the world gather for Technical Global Innovation Fridays (TGIF) to address pressing issues in developing nations. Currently, we are focused on the e-waste problem in West Africa, where the practice of burning electronic waste to extract copper is causing devastating health and birth defects due to the release of harmful substances such as arsenic, lead, and mercury. To solve this problem, we are teaching West Africans how to sift the waste using DIY Sifters that we have designed with common and inexpensive materials. This approach not only leads to higher per capita income but, more importantly, it significantly improves the health crisis in the region by avoiding the harmful effects of burning e-waste. Through science, we aim to demonstrate more profitable and cleaner paths, thereby permanently fixing this issue as knowledge is a source of everlasting power.
By joining us, you become a valued member of our select group of scientists who deliver high-impact solutions on a global scale. We take a deliberate approach to hiring, carefully filtering out problematic egos to create a high-functioning and supportive environment. In addition to providing competitive equity compensation, we offer respect and appreciation for our team members. If you’re interested in joining Applied Physics, please highlight your problem-solving skills and personal character when you apply. Remember, you can always return to your tenure position, but you can never go back to make history.
