The Nanoscience and Technology Division/Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory has two available postdoctoral positions, one in experiment and one in theory. The positions are funded for one year with the possibility of extension (subject to available funding and performance evaluation).
The prospective researchers will carry out research in the area of novel ultrafast imaging and spectroscopy for quantum information science applications.
For the experimental postdoctoral position, a strong experimental background in quantum optics, ultrafast optical spectroscopy, imaging, and single photon counting is preferred. Additional expertise in photoinduced charge and energy transfer, and spectroscopy in turbulent or highly scattering media is beneficial. For additional information, please contact Gary Wiederrecht at email@example.com.
For the theoretical postdoctoral position, expertise in the theory and modeling of quantum systems, especially in the context of quantum optics, quantum information and open systems dynamics is preferred. Additional expertise in advanced scientific programming is beneficial. For additional information, please contact Stephen Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The candidates should have or be receiving shortly a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry or a related field, and not be beyond two years of receiving the Ph.D.
Interested candidates should send a detailed curriculum vitae including a list of publications and the names and addresses of three professional references through the Argonne web site at http://www.anl.gov/careers for requisition number NST 405001 for the experimental candidates and NST 405112 for the theoretical candidates.
