OPENING OF POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS
Center for Attosecond Science and Technology (CASTECH)
Max Planck POSTECH / KOREA Res. Init. at POSTECH
CASTECH (http://lsl.postech.ac.kr/ ) has been established to further develop new attosecond source and attosecond spectroscopy and metrology to promote the measurement, control and exploitation of ultrafast phenomena in nature that have never been explored before. During the last few years, CASTECH have constructed ultrafast light sources such few-cycle pulses and attoseocnd pulses and light facilities in atomic physics, molecular science, nano/surface science, nano-imaging and ultrafast magnetism.
CASTECH has successfully generated isolated attosecond pulses of 200 as duration since Nov. 2011. These facilities have been successfully used for attosecond transient absorption spectroscopy, attosecond streaking spectroscopy, femtosecond magnetism experiment based on magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE), femtosecond photoemission spectroscopy.
CASTECH under MPK is seeking excellent post-doctoral researchers to carry out experiments for the study of ultrafast science using attosecond / femtosecond metrology along with TOF, VMI electron spectrometer, ARTOF electron spectrometer, PEEM and XUV spectrometer.
2 openings. Telecommuting is allowed.
