2 Postdoc positions in Theoretical and Computational Chemical Physics, University of California, Irvine, USA


(A) Nonlinear Spectroscopy with Quantum Optical FieldsNovel optical signals which use entangled photons and quantum light, pulse shaping, and coherent control algorithms will be designed and simulated for probing electronic and vibrational dynamics in molecular systems

(B) Ultrafast NonlinearX-ray Spectroscopy of Molecules Emerging X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) beam sources offer new types of probes of matter with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolutions. Cutting-edge theoretical and simulation tools for nonlinear multidimensional X-ray/optical spectroscopies will be developed. Time-dependent many-body approaches will be developed to nonlinear x-ray core-electron spectra and conical intersections. Computational tools will be implemented for the design and analysis of measurements involving multiple ultrafast optical and x-ray pulses.
