2 Theoretical Postdoctoral Scholar positions Nonlinear and Ultrafast Spectroscopy, University of California, USA

Position 1: Nonlinear Spectroscopy with Quantum Optical Fields

Novel optical signals which use entangled photons and quantum light, pulse shaping, and coherent control algorithms will be designed and simulated as novel probes for electronic and vibrational dynamics in molecular systems.

Position 2: Ultrafast Nonlinear X-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 employed for predicting 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.

Recent Ph.D. is required. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
