A position as Postdoctoral Researcher in Ultrafast Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (AMO) and Attosecond Science is available at University of Central Florida. The candidate selected will participate in experimental studies using table-top attosecond lasers/free electron lasers and e/ion spectroscopy. Candidates with a background in experimental physics with an emphasis on strong field or attosecond physics and experience in high-power ultrafast lasers, high harmonic generation, and electron/ion spectroscopy will have first consideration.
Duties and Responsibilities: The researcher will be primarily responsible for helping with setting up an attosecond beamline and/or spectrometer system and for carrying out experiments using the XUV/x-ray photon sources in on-campus laboratories. The research project concerns the interaction of atomic and molecular systems with ultrashort laser pulses in the short-wavelength range. Additional duties include assisting in the supervision of graduate and undergraduate research work in laboratories, and assisting experiments carried out at off-campus facilities. The researcher is expected to publish papers in the refereed literature, and to attend professional meetings to present results of this research.
Minimum qualifications: a PhD in physics or related field.
