The ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) Project is an integral part of the
European Union plan to build the next generation of large research facilities.
ELI-Beamlines was opened in 2015 as a cutting edge laser facility and
currently is starting to offer open access beamtime to users. ELI-Beamlines is
delivering ultrashort, ultra-intense laser pulses lasting typically a few
femtoseconds (12-150 fs) with peak powers ranging from 5 TW up to 10 PW. It
will make available time synchronized laser beams over wide range intensities
for wide range of interdisciplinary applications in physics, medicine,
biology, material science etc. The high laser electric field intensities of
the laser pulse is also used for generating secondary sources of e- and p+.
ELI Beamlines is a part of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of
Sciences, and it was open in 2015.
The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences is a holder of the
HR Excellence in Research Award. It is awarded by the European Commission to
institutions which put significant effort into improving their human resources
strategy and ensuring professional and ethical working conditions.
The department 89 (Plasma physics and ultra-high intensity interactions) is
expanding and recruiting an experimental physicist in relevant fields for
implementation, commissioning, user operation and future development of the P3
(Plasma Physics Platform) infrastructure. In our team we therefore have the
following position available for experimental high-power laser-matter
Senior or Junior Scientist -
High-power laser-plasma interaction (148)
The candidate is supposed to work predominantly on the following topics:
design, development, installation, and commissioning of diagnostic systems
and other technological infrastructure elements related to P3
develop research activities in either high-energy or high-intensity laser-
participation in the commissioning and user operation phase
the candidate has sufficient flexibility to work on other urgent tasks
related to the operation of the P3 infrastructure
the candidate is open-minded for all aspects of high-power laser-matter
interaction, e.g. inertial fusion energy aspects
prepare and participate in experimental campaigns abroad
PhD in experimental physics or closely related field
past experience in laser-plasma interaction (technology and/or
experiment) would be a very strong plus
good track record in publications
experience in optical engineering aspects is an advantage
good knowledge of spoken and written English is necessary
ability to take initiative and perform tasks independently
the opportunity to participate in this unique scientific project
competitive and motivating salary
flexible working hours
nice working environment
pension contribution and 6 unjustified personal leave days
support of leisure time activities
Applications, containing CV, cover letter, contacts of references, and any
other material the candidate considers relevant, should be sent to Mrs. Jana
Ženíšková, HR specialist (email@example.com, +420 - 601560322).
