The Laboratory for Advanced Analytical Technologies has an opening for a

Postdoc in Ultrafast X-ray Optics

The laboratory is looking for a postdoctoral candidate to carry out research in the field of chirped pulse amplification laser development and implementation for X-ray spectroscopy. You will be involved in the research with a tabletop alternative to beamlines called Empulse. You will also supervise PhD students in the fields of laser spectroscopy, X-ray optics and optical design of experimental setups. We offer a motivating supervision to work with an excellent infrastructure in broad interdisciplinary surrounding. You will gain a large and diversified expertise and the lab will encourage your scientific career with application to grants and submission of papers.

Scientific challenges

  • Development of optical solutions for our laboratory setups to enable the realization of experiments at high pulse energy and/or ultrafast pulses.
  • Insight from experimental data from the pulse diagnostics.
  • Exploration of innovative experimental schemes for compact ultrafast X-ray sources.
  • Application to chemical and spectroscopic methods.
  • Communication of the results in peer-reviewed journals and at international conferences.
  • Required skills

  • PhD thesis in ultrafast optics or a proven lab experience.
  • Experience in wave optics, Fourier analysis, Non-linear and ultrafast, lasers, X-rays.
  • Experience in data methods and basic statistics.
  • Desirable skills in programming and engineering of components.
  • Fluency in English and strong writing skills.
  • The two-year position is available immediately until filled, and can be extended upon excellent outcomes.
