Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) position in the Spectroscopy of Cold Molecules Department at Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Closing date for applications: April 1st 2018.
In the Spectroscopy of Cold Molecules Department, headed by Bas van de Meerakker, we have an opening for an assistant professor (tenure track) position. As an Assistant Professor you will further strengthen research in the field of chemical physics or physical chemistry, especially where systems involving cold and controlled molecules are concerned. The department has a broad research programme to study molecular collision processes in the gas phase, with high precision and in low-temperature regimes. We use Stark and Zeeman deceleration techniques to obtain full control over the velocities and quantum states of the molecules prior to the collision, and state-of-the-art velocity map imaging techniques to probe the collision products. Strong collaborations exist with theory groups to interpret the experimental results.
Your research programme should be complementary to the current activities in the department, for example, by focusing in particular on interactions of molecules with surfaces or interfaces. Other examples are studies involving Rydberg states or molecular ions, reactive scattering, and spectroscopic investigations using advanced light sources. Your programme should add valuable novel aspects to the department’s research programme but should also be coherent with it.
