Postdoctoral Researcher in Ultrafast Laser Science (m/f)

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-driven short-pulse light sources in a broad spectral range in combination with methods of nonlinear spectroscopy. The spectral range includes in particular XUV radiation and soft x-rays, where experiments at in-house sources are complemented with the use of accelerator driven sources such as free electron x-ray lasers.

With its research, MBI fulfils a national mission and is an integral part of the international scientific community. We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to complement our project team on laser development for soft x-ray sources.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Ultrafast Laser Science (m/f)

Job profile:

MBI has started a project to develop laser-driven sources of soft x-rays for user experiments. In the first phase of the project, an infrared OPCPA system pumped by a state of the art commercial high average power thin disk laser system will be developed and used to produce high harmonic radiation. You will work as a scientist in a team of experts towards this goal, present your results in scientific journals and at conferences and take part in shaping this research field within MBI.

The successful candidate holds a Ph.D. degree in physics or a related area and has a track record for performing excellent research with hands-on experience in the areas of experimental ultrafast laser development, OPCPA technology or high harmonic generation. The ability to work both independently and in a team is important, as well as effective written and verbal communications skills.

The researcher position is available immediately and initially limited to 2 years, an extension is possible. The payment is according to the German TVöD salary scheme for scientists in public research institutions.

In order to reach an enhanced share of women in successful scientific careers, applications of qualified female candidates are particularly welcome. Severely disabled persons and persons treated as such with equal qualification and aptitude are given preferential consideration. Indicate a possible disability already in the application. The MBI is certified as a family-oriented company by the Audit ' ' family audit ' '

Please send your application, including cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates and description of previous professional activities electronically to Mrs. Saylik or by Mail to Max-Born-Institut für Nichtlineare Optik und Kurzzeitspektroskopie, Max-Born-Straße 2a, 12489 Berlin, Germany, c/o Ms. Saylik quoting this announcement.
