Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position available immediately. Candidates are expected to have a track record of research in optics/photonics – nonlinear optics (NLO). There are several topic areas of interest, e.g. NLO properties of organic dyes (collaborations with chemists from various institutes around the globe who send us materials). Two-photon detection (See Nature Photonics Vol. 5, Issue 9, pp. 561-565, (2011), and 2-photon gain in semiconductors.
Candidates with both analytical and experimental skills are encouraged to apply. Experience with short pulse lasers is highly desirable. The position will be awarded initially for a period of one year with the possibility of further extensions. Candidates should send a letter of application and their curriculum vitae to:
