The MURI Center for Dynamic Magneto-Optics (DYNAMO) at the University of Michigan is seeking a postdoctoral experimentalist to study intense magneto-optic nonlinearities of interest for energy conversion, Terahertz generation, and high frequency magnetism. Research at DYNAMO includes investigation of methods to convert light directly to THz radiation and electricity, to induce large magnetic fields in normally non-magnetic materials, and to explore connections between relativistic and non-relativistic magneto-optic phenomena. The successful candidate will be expected to lead an independent investigation assisted by graduate and undergraduate students on topics in nonlinear optics, coherent control, ultrafast spectroscopy, optical materials characterization (polymers, crystals, ceramics) and elastic light scattering. Candidates should have a PhD in physics, chemistry or electrical engineering and be familiar with mode-locked laser systems, ultrafast technology, photon-counting, high frequency electronics, electro-optics and computer interfacing. Start date may be as early as Fall 2017 but applications will be accepted until the position is filled for a one year appointment with possible extension. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume and contact information for at least two references via email to Professor Stephen Rand, Director, MURI Center for Dynamic Magneto-Optics, 2200 Bonisteel Blvd. Room 3102 ERB1, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-2099 (email@example.com; http://dynamo.engin.umich.edu ).
