The Department of Physics, wishes to appoint an academic staff member at lecturer level in the Quantum Optics and Laser Science (QOLS) Group.
We are seeking a scientist with an active commitment to innovative research and teaching. You will be expected to plan, direct and undertake a research programme of international repute in one or more areas of advanced photon science. We especially welcome applicants with strong experimental expertise who can contribute and enhance our ability to develop ultrafast XUV and X-ray sources and apply them to cutting-edge scientific problems. Notwithstanding the above focus, exceptional candidates from any related area of photon science are also encouraged to apply.
Duties and responsibilities
You will be part of the QOLS Group and also affiliated to the Photon Science Section of the Department which includes the Photonics Group that conducts applied research in life science, medicine and ICT. QOLS consists of 20 academic staff, 30 post-doctoral researchers and over 50 PhD students and conducts fundamental research into quantum optics and advanced photon science, including development and application of HHG attosecond sources, strong-field science, attosecond and ultrafast science with X-ray FELs and other advanced photon sources. The successful applicant will either complement or enhance these research interests.
Imperial College London is a world leading university whose reputation for excellence in research and teaching attracts students and staff of the highest international quality. The three Faculties – Engineering, Natural Sciences and Medicine - together with the Business School explore the interface between science, medicine, engineering and management.
