PhD (Attosecond Physics)
Bewerbungsschluss:31.08.2017 Kennziffer: A-17-123-02_dup
Vergütung: Marie Skłodowska Curie ITN Early Stage Researcher Openings in Chemical Physics
Befristung auf: 3 years
Stellenprofil: Applications are invited for a PhD position under the supervision of Prof. Marc Vrakking at the Max-Born Institute, in Berlin, as part of the EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN), "ASPIRE". The post benefits from a highly competitive and attractive salary, plus mobility and family allowances as applicable.

At the Max-Born Institute, a state-of-the-art 100 kHz, few-cycle Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplifier (OPCPA) has been developed as driver laser for a two-color attosecond pump-probe experiment. Given the uniquely high repetition rate of the OPCPA, the experiments will be carried using fully coincident detection of the electrons and ions formed in the experiment, using a COLTRIMS setup. In addition to Prof. Vrakking as thesis supervisor, the PhD students will benefit from supervision by a number of senior scientists (Dr. Schulz, Dr. Furch and Dr. Witting).

The ASPIRE network comprises 9 member institutions, from both academia and industry, located in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Denmark and Italy, together with 6 partner organisations. A total of 12 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) are hosted across the network and take part in laboratory-based research, a network-wide training program, public engagement activities and collaboration with network partners through short-term placements in European industrial/academic partner laboratories. Details of all available projects can be found at: www.ASPIRE-ITN.eu. The overarching research goal of the ASPIRE project is the measurement of "molecular frame" (MF) photoelectron angular distributions (PADs) from isolated molecules of varying complexity.

The full-time post is offered on a fixed-term 36 month contract. If needed, individual arrangements deviating from this scheme can be considered. The successful candidate will register for a PhD at the Freie Universität Berlin.
Anforderungen: The successful candidates for these posts will possess an excellent Master degree in a relevant subject (Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Physics), excellent verbal and written communication skills, and the potential to conduct independent scientific research and perform well as part of a research team. Candidates will be required to meet the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher eligibility criteria:
(http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/wp/2014_2015/main/h2020-wp1415-msca_en.pdf, p40-41). In particular, at the time of appointment candidates must have had less than four years full-time equivalent research experience and must not have already obtained a PhD. Additionally, she/he must not have resided in Germany for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the appointment.
Bewerbung an: In order to reach an enhanced share of women in successful scientific careers, applications of qualified female candidates are particularly welcome. Severely disabled persons and persons treated as such with equal qualification and aptitude are given preferential consideration. Indicate a possible disability already in the application. The MBI is certified as a family-oriented company by the Audit "family audit".

Informal enquiries may be addressed to the Prof. Marc Vrakking (marc.vrakking@mbi-berlin.de).

Formal complete applications with all relevant documents (cover letter, CV, copy of degree certificate, transcript of grades) are to be sent by 31.08.2017 to Ms. Ms. Sevkan Saylik (personal@mbi-berlin.de), or Max-Born-Institut für Nichtlineare Optik und Kurzzeitspektroskopie, Max-Born-Straße 2A, 12489 Berlin, Germany.
