Applications are invited for an EU FET-OPEN funded postdoctoral research associate with Dr. Tom Oliver, supported by Professor Mike Ashfold FRS, in the Laser Chemistry, Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group at Bristol. The project will involve collaboration with a variety of scientists from different disciplines in 7 other institutions across Europe. The appointee will use state-of-the-art multidimensional optical spectroscopies such as two-dimensional electronic and two-dimensional electronic-vibrational spectroscopy to study the condensed phase non-radiative relaxation dynamics of a variety of molecular systems, including molecules that display good ‘photon to heat’ conversion properties, such as specially synthesised diketopyrrolopyrroles or sinapoyl malate derivatives.
Applicants should have, or be about to graduate with, a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Chemical Physics, or a related discipline. Candidates should have proven experience with at least some of the following: femtosecond lasers, non-linear optics, optical parametric amplifiers, condensed phase dynamics.
This open-ended position has funding available for 2.5 years and is available from 1st April 2019.
