Postdoctoral Position in Experimental 2D Electronic Spectroscopy at TU Munich, Germany

The group ‘Dynamic Spectroscopy’ at the Department of Chemistry, School of Natural Sciences, TU Munich is looking for a postdoctoral candidate. The group specializes in time-resolved spectroscopy to tackle challenges in photophysics and photochemistry as well as in material sciences. ( We have installed an amplified fs laser system (Coherent Legend Elite Duo HE+, <25 fs, 2.5 mJ at 5 kHz), seeding a hollow core fiber for whitelight generation. Two more labs are equipped with Yb-lasers (Pharos PH2 15 W). Applicants project • Construct and maintain a coherently detected 2D electronic spectroscopy experiment.
• Oversee work on an existing transient absorption spectroscopy experiment.
• Undertake routine maintenance work for the amplified laser systems stated above.
• Contribute to the teaching activities of the group.

Applicant's profile: • A PhD degree in chemistry or physics
• Experience with constructing and running ultrafast spectroscopy experiments, ideally 2D electronic spectroscopy with femtosecond pulses in the visible spectral range.
• Ability to work with and inspire PhD- and Master-students.
• Ability to work in an international environment.

The offer: The Technische Universität München (TUM) is one of the most renowned universities in Europe. We are offering excellent working conditions in a highly international research environment.
