Title Fellow (Postdoc)
University Kansas State University
Manhattan, KS, United States
Department Department of Physics James R. Macdonald Lab
Application Deadline until filled
Position Start Date until filled
  • Post-Doc
  • Physics - Atomic/Molecular/Optical/Plasma

Job Summary: We will work in theoretical ultrafast atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) physics. You will gain experience in computational molecular physics/chemistry and method development.

Minimum qualifications: You should have earned a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in physics, physical chemistry or a related field by the time the position begins.
Useful qualifications: You would benefit from previous experience performing calculations of x-ray interactions with atoms or molecules. This may include dynamics, rate equations, or calculations of core-excited states.

We will perform research on the interactions of x-rays and molecules. Possible research projects and responsibilities include:

  • Calculating core-excited states of molecules
  • Developing new computational methods to accurately describe electron correlation in core-excited states
  • Dynamical calculations of x-ray interactions with molecules

We will be involved in influencing how time-resolved x-ray experiments can be used to understand electron dynamics. Electron correlation can drive the movement of charges and energy in molecules, and we will develop methods to understand and describe these processes.

You should also demonstrate dedication to mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and to serving a diverse population.

  • Kansas State University is an Equal Opportunity Employer of individuals with disabilities and protected veterans and actively seeks diversity among its employees. Background check required.
