Postdoctoral Researcher in Ultrafast Laser Science (m/f/d)

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 ultra-fast and ultra-intense lasersand laser-riven short-pulse light sources in a broad spectral range in combination with methods of nonlinear spectroscopy. With its research, MBI fulfils a national mission and is an integral part of the international scientific community.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Ultrafast Laser Science (m/f/d)

Job profile: MBI is in the process of setting up an application laboratory with laser-driven sources of soft x-rays for basic research and application experiments. This entails the development of high power infrared driver laser systems, the generation of high harmonics and distribution to experiments. Currently, an infrared OPCPA system pumped by a state of the art commercial high average power thin disk laser system is set up to produce high harmonic radiation targeting the water window, with the goal to reach unprecedented performance and reliability for application experiments. 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.

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

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

If equally qualified, severely handicapped persons are given preference. MBI is an equal opportunity employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply.

MBI supports the reconcilability of family and working life and is certified as a family-friendly by the "family audit".

Please upload your application, including cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates and description of previous professional activities electronically via the MBI online recruiting platform at The deadline for applications is January 31st, 2019.

Optik-Simulation geladener Teilchen

  • 24. January 2019

Nehmen Sie an diesem Webinar teil, um mehr über Simula­tionen der Optik gela­dener Teil­chen zu er­fah­ren. Sie lernen, wie man die Trajek­torien von Ionen, Elek­tronen, Atomen und Mole­külen in Gegen­wart von elek­tri­schen und magne­tischen Kräf­ten be­rech­net, um z.B. Einzel­linsen, Teil­chen­be­schleu­ni­ger oder auch Protonen­bewegungen im Erd­magnet­feld zu model­lieren.
