OPEN POSITIONS First Research Engineer with focus on photoionization of atoms and molecules

The Department of Physics at the University of Gothenburg is located on the main campus of Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, with a total of about 80 employees. The communication routes are good both nationally and internationally. The research focuses in the fields of Atomic- and Molecular Physics, Condensed Matter Physics and Spintronics, as well as Complex Systems and Biophysics, and is performed in an international environment with extensive national and international collaborations. The education programs at the Department include Bachelor- and Master programs in Physics, Physics teacher-training programs, as well as outreach courses in Physics aimed for the general public. The Gothenburg Physics Centre constitutes a close collaboration with four other departments within the Faculty of Science and Chalmers University of Technology, providing an innovative environment for all researchers and students at the department.

One of the most successful research areas at the Department of Physics at the University of Gothenburg is Atomic and Molecular Physics with particular focus on electron correlations in multiply ionised systems, which are investigated by means of multi-particle correlation spectroscopy methods and by utilizing ultraviolet to X-radiation. The department has ongoing projects at synchrotron radiation facilities like e.g. MAX-IV in Lund and Free-Electron-Lasers like e.g. FERMI in Italy as well as the Lund Laser Centre. Furthermore, the department is about to procure a new high power laser system for the generation of ultrashort pulses in the extreme ultra-violet spectral region with attosecond time properties. In addition, the department has several set-ups for the production of negative ions, which are of special interests within the ongoing research in atomic and molecular physics at the University of Gothenburg.

The Department is looking now for a First Research Engineer with documented experiences in building, further developing and maintaining equipment for multi-particle correlation studies in combination with the light sources mentioned including the handling of high power laser systems.

Job assignments
The applicant should strengthen and complement the existing research in Atomic and Molecular Physics with particular focus on multi-particle correlation studies utilising cutting-edge radiation sources. The applicant is expected to both maintain our existing equipment and the upcoming new laser system, as well as develop related equipment for time-resolved electron correlation studies on atoms and molecules. The applicant is expected to initiate and maintain research collaborations within and outside of the department, both on the national and international level. The applicant is also expected to apply for external grants from both Swedish and European funding agencies.


Qualifications
A PhD degree in physics is a requirement. Documented experience of building, developing, and maintaining multi-particle correlation spectroscopy methods in combination with synchrotron radiation and Free-electron laser sources, as well as the handling of high power laser systems for the production of ultrashort pulses in the extreme ultraviolet spectral region.

Assessment
Scientific proficiency within the subject areas atomic and molecular physics and electron correlations, and documented experience of building and maintaining experimental equipment for multi-particle correlation spectroscopy methods in combination with synchrotron radiation, Free-Electron-Lasers and table-top high power lasers, as well as the handling of high power laser systems for the generation of ultrashort pulses in the extreme ultraviolet spectral region will be the most important aspect in assessing the candidate's skills. In addition, good skills in coincidence and covariance data analysis are highly desirable.

The candidate’s experience in developing and maintaining experimental equipment for multi-particle correlation spectroscopy methods in combination with synchrotron radiation, Free-Electron-Lasers and table-top high power lasers, as well as the handling of high power laser systems for the generation of ultrashort pulses in the extreme ultraviolet spectral region, should be described in detail and contact information to references about this experience should be provided.

Present skills and track record will be evaluated together with the candidate’s potential for further career development. Weight will also be given to the candidate’s potential to interact with peers and other staff and contribute overall to the positive development of the department.
