to be determined based on qualifications; excellent benefits
The National eXtreme Ultrafast Science (NeXUS) Facility is a cutting-edge, ultrafast soft x-ray and extreme ultraviolet user facility under development in Columbus, Ohio, USA. The NeXUS Facility will enable researchers to perform time-resolved studies of chemical, electronic, and material dynamics at femtosecond to attosecond time scales and at angstrom length scales. NeXUS is looking for a postdoctoral researcher for the commissioning phase of the facility. The responsibilities will include contributions to commissioning of high-harmonic generation and XUV beamlines, including reporting the results in scientific conferences and peer-reviewed journals. The successful candidate will be encouraged to contribute to the commissioning experiments in attosecond physics or ultrafast XUV spectroscopy. The successful applicant will be part of a vibrant international and multi-cultural team of scientists, engineers, technical and administrative staff. This postdoctoral position will offer the opportunity to be involved in cutting edge scientific and technical progress and participate in our international networks of extreme light facilities.
PhD in physics, optical engineering, or related field
PhD or postdoc research focus in ultrafast physics or related field
Experience in at least one of the following fields: high harmonics generation, XUV optics, attosecond experiments, ultrafast nonlinear optics
Strong communication and collaboration skills
Strong oral and written English skills
This appointment is limited to 1-2 years with a possible promotion to a permanent scientist position after the performance evaluation.
Please apply online and provide a cover letter and a CV in English.
