Ad for Li Fang's Experimental Group in Attosecond AMO Science.

A position as Postdoctoral Researcher in Experimental Ultrafast Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (AMO) and Attosecond Science is available at University of Central Florida in the group of Dr. Li Fang. The candidate selected will participate in studies using table-top attosecond lasers/free electron lasers and e/ion spectroscopy. Candidates with a background in experimental physics with an emphasis on strong field or attosecond physics and experience in high-power ultrafast lasers, high harmonic generation, and electron/ion spectroscopy will have first consideration.

The University of Central Florida is rapidly becoming a major center for the theoretical and experimental study of ultrafast electron dynamics in atoms, molecules and solids, and a point of reference on the East coast of the United States for the international attosecond community. UCF will host ATTO VIII, the next edition of the most prominent international conference of attosecond science []. Successful applicants will have a unique opportunity to showcase their achievements there. Orlando has also been selected to host the annual conference of the Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics (DAMOP) of the American Physical Society in 2022.

Duties and Responsibilities: The researcher will be primarily responsible for helping with setting up an attosecond beamline and/or spectrometer system and for carrying out experiments using the XUV/x-ray photon sources in on-campus laboratories. The research project concerns the interaction of atomic and molecular systems with ultrashort laser pulses in the short-wavelength range. Additional duties include assisting in the supervision of graduate and undergraduate research work in laboratories, and assisting experiments carried out at off-campus facilities. The researcher is expected to publish papers in the refereed literature, and to attend professional meetings to present results of this research.

Minimum qualifications: a PhD in physics or related field.

Candidates with a background in high-power ultrafast lasers, high harmonic generation, electron/ion spectroscopy, and strong field physics will have first consideration.

A successful candidate may start in the position as early as September 2021.

Special instructions to applicants. To apply, the candidates must provide the following documentation: 1. A cover letter (pdf) explaining why they believe they meet the qualifications required and preferred for the position, what are their research interests, how they matured them, and why they think the position on offer is consistent with their academic trajectory. 2. Curriculum vitae (pdf), including a complete list of their publications with links to the corresponding web pages. 3. A pdf copy of their Ph.D. thesis. 4. the candidates must arrange for three letters of reference, to be uploaded. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted in a timely manner to schedule an online interview. The position will remain open until filled.

The University of Central Florida (UCF) is a large public research university, with a growing Physics Department and a College of Optics & Photonics (CREOL) with few equals in the world. In the latest survey, UCF graduate program in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics has been ranked 12th in the U.S. UCF main campus is located on the outskirt of Orlando, a city of everlasting Summer.
