Postdoctoral Position Reaction Dynamics & Astrochemistry, East China Normal University, State Key Laboratory of Precision Spectroscopy, Shanghai & Shanghai- Hawaii-Hefei Advanced Research Center for Astrochemistry.
The Shanghai-Hawaii-Hefei Advanced Research Center for Astrochemistry invites applications for multiple postdoctoral positions. The appointment period is initially for one year, but can be renewed annually based on availability of funds and satisfactory progress as defined by first author publications. The salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Successful applicants should have a strong background in experimental reaction dynamics, UHV technology, cryotechnology, gas phase and/or condensed phase reaction dynamics, and spectroscopy.
Experience in labview programming and/or Autocad/SolidWorks is desirable. The goal of the experiments is to probe the formation of organic (biorelevant) molecules in Solar System and interstellar ices via interaction of ionizing radiation with low temperature ices and silicates, respectively. Reaction products will be probed via tunable vacuum ultraviolet photoionization provided by the vacuum ultraviolet beamline at the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory in Hefei. This research is conducted within the framework of the Shanghai-Hawaii-Hefei Advanced Research Center for Astrochemistry.
Solid communication skills in English (written, oral), a publication record in internationally circulated, peer-reviewed journals, and willingness to work in a team are mandatory. Only selfmotivated and energetic candidates are encouraged to apply. Please send a letter of interest, three letters of recommendation, CV, and publication list to Prof. Tao Yang [State Key Laboratory of Precision Spectroscopy, East China Normal University, Shanghai 200062, P. R. China; firstname.lastname@example.org]. Applicants must demonstrate their capability to prepare manuscripts for publications independently. The review of applications will start February 15, 2019, and continues until the positions are filled. A description of our center can be found at https://www.uhmreactiondynamics.org/SHH.html. Only complete applications will be reviewed.
