Job Details

A postdoctoral researcher is needed to further develop and apply of a unique type of multidimensional spectroscopy, Multiple Population Period Transient Spectroscopy (MUPPETS).  This method uses a sequence of six ultrafast light pulses to disentangle the heterogeneity of rates within complex materials.  Systems of current interest include surfactant nanostructures, supercooled liquids, and ionic liquids. 

A PhD in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science or a related field is required.  The successful candidate will operate and maintain an ultrafast laser system, operate and modify a unique optical system that executes six-pulse experiments, collect and analyze data, develop new data-analysis techniques, and prepare results for publication.  Expertise in operating ultrafast lasers and in using advanced spectroscopies is highly desirable.

Applicants should submit a cover letter summarizing their education and prior research experience and a CV.  At least two letters of recommendation, including one from the applicant’s current supervisor, should be sent directly from the recommenders.  All materials should be sent to:

Prof. Mark A. Berg,
