Designation/Position- Postdoctoral Research Associate
Max-Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI) invites application for Postdoctoral Research Associate position from eligible and interested candidates- research job
About- The Max-Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI) conducts basic research in the field of nonlinear optics and ultrafast dynamics arising from the interaction of light with matter and pursues applications that emerge from this research. It develops and uses ultrafast and ultra-intense lasers and laser-riven short-pulse light sources in a broad spectral range in combination with methods of nonlinear spectroscopy.
With its research, MBI fulfils a national mission and is an integral part of the international scientific community.
Research/Job Area- Physics or chemistry
Location- Max-Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI), Germany
Eligibility/Qualification– PhD in physics or chemistry, experience in ultrafast optics and strong background in at least two of the following areas: solid state physics, physics of crystalline materials, x-ray physics and applications, ultrafast photochemistry, techniques of nonlinear time-resolved spectroscopy. The supervision of students at MBI is desired.
Job/Position Description- MBI invites applications for a position of a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on femtosecond x-ray diffraction of condensed matter.
Such research aims at elucidating ultrafast charge dynamics in solids with particular emphasis on ferroelectrics and correlated materials. An infrastructure of femtosecond laser-driven hard x-ray sources is available for experiments and complemented by ultrafast spectroscopic methods such as nonlinear infrared and terahertz spectroscopy, including numerical codes and software for data analysis. The work will be performed in a team of senior researchers, postdocs, and PhD students and is embedded in international collaborations.
How to Apply- MBI offers a 2-year appointment with a salary according to the German salary scheme for the public sector (TVöD).
MBI is a family-friendly equal opportunity employer, applications by female scientists are invited in particular. If equally qualified, severely handicapped persons are given preference.
MBI supports the reconcilability of family and working life and is certified as family-friendly by the “family audit”.
Please upload your application with a cv, a description of the research experience, publication list and – if available – recommendation letters electronically via the MBI online recruiting platform at http://www.mbi-berlin.de/de/jobs/index.html.
