2 PhD positions (experimental physics) are available in the groups of Frank Stienkemeier and Giuseppe Sansone at the Institute of Physics, University of Freiburg, Germany. In a close collaboration between the two groups, we are combining expertise in XUV and attosecond science (Sansone), on the one hand, and coherent multidimensional spectroscopy (Stienkemeier), on the other hand, to develop coherent nonlinear and multidimensional spectroscopy in the XUV and attosecond regime. This new class of XUV spectroscopy will provide unprecedented information about coherent and nonlinear processes studied in fundamental systems on femto- to attosecond time scales. The PhD students will built a specialized interferometric setup for timing and phase control of intense femtosecond laser pulses and combine it with a high-harmonic generation laser source. Experiments will focus on the study of coherent wave packet dynamics, attosecond metrology and two-color VIS-XUV two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy.
Candidates should have strong interest in atomic and molecular physics or physical chemistry. Experience in the use of ultrafast lasers and vacuum equipment is advantageous.
Applications including a letter of motivation, a CV, university certificates (with grades), transcripts of record and addresses of two referees should be sent in a single pdf-file to: email@example.com Please indicate the subject “PhD XUV spectroscopy” in your email.
Application deadline is 15.02.2019 (Search will be continued until the two positions are filled)
