PhD positions in attosecond science


Two predoctoral contracts are available in the group of Prof. Fernando Martín at IMDEA-Nanociencia (http://nanociencia.imdea.org/fernando-martin-s-group/group-people) in the framework of a collaborative project funded by the Madrid regional government (Y2018/NMT-5028, FULMATEN-CM) and the European Social Fund. 

The research project
The project aims at using attosecond and few-femtosecond laser pulses for real time imaging of charge transfer processes occurring in organic molecules, and eventually to control them. The positions concern the theoretical modeling of such charge transfer processes in systems of interest for the design of new materials. Previous work of the group in related research topics can be found in: https://campusys.qui.uam.es/?page_id=12

Candidates Profile
Candidates of any gender and nationality are welcome to apply. To be considered, candidates must have:
1. A BSc degree in Physics or Chemistry. A post graduate specialization degree (e.g. MSc) in Physics or Chemical Physics will be positively evaluated.
2. Excellent knowledge of quantum mechanics, basic electrodynamics, basic atomic, molecular and optical physics; scattering theory and numerical methods.
3. Fluent English;
We will value positively enthusiasm for learning and commitment to teamwork and any additional skills in the areas of mathematics, physics, chemistry and programming that are relevant to the positions. For example, acquaintance with quantum chemistry packages to model excited states; participation to software projects; competences in photoelectron spectroscopies, attosecond physics; etc.

Starting Date and Duration
Positions should ideally start as soon as possible and are funded for 3 years each. A one-year contract will be signed initially, followed by extension(s) until the end of the project, depending on the performance of the candidate, and upon mutual agreement.

Salary will be agreed based on the candidate experience following the standards of a predoc position in Spain.

Application procedure
Candidates should send to fulmaten-cm@imdea.org a CV, a cover letter clearly explaining the preferred position, contact information for two references, copy of BSc and MSc degree certificates, academic records, and any additional information that can support the application. Deadline is March 3, 2019. Applicants are kindly advised to include the reference “FULMATEN-IMDEA2” in the issue.
Additional supporting documents, clarification and recommendation letters could be requested during the selection process. Selected candidates shall be contacted for an interview, where practical questions will also be asked.
