One postdoctoral contract is available in the group of Prof. Luis Bañares at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (https://webs.ucm.es/info/dinalaser/index.html), in the framework of a synergy project funded by the Madrid regional government (Y2018/NMT-5028, FULMATEN-CM) and the European Social Fund.
The research project
The project aims at using attosecond and few-femtosecond laser pulses for real time imaging of charge transfer processes occurring in organic molecules, and eventually to control them. The postdoctoral position is for an experimentalist and concerns the build-up and subsequent use of a high harmonic generation line specially designed to visualize charge transfer processes in pump-probe experiments with sub-femtosecond or few femtosecond time resolution.
Candidates of any gender and nationality are welcome to apply. To be considered, candidates must have:
- A PhDdegree in Physics or Chemical Physics.
- A strong background in ultrafast lasers, laser spectroscopy, harmonic generation, photoelectron spectroscopy, and pump-probe experiments.
- Fluent English;
We will value positively transnational mobility periods, demonstrated independence and commitment to team work, and any additional skills in experimental work on ultrafast science.
Starting Date and Duration
Position should ideally start as soon as possible and is funded for two years. A one-year contract will be signed initially, followed by a one-year extension depending on the performance of the candidate, and upon mutual agreement.
Salary will be agreed based on the candidate experience following the standards of a postdoc position in Spain.
Candidates should send a CV, a cover letter clearly explaining the preferred position, contact information for two references, copy of PhD certificate, and any additional information that can support the application to firstname.lastname@example.org before June 20, 2019. Applications not following this procedure will not be considered.
Additional supporting documents and recommendation letters could be requested during the selection process. Selected candidates shall be contacted for an interview.
