Open Positions

Postdoc Position: Advanced photonics for ultrafast chiral spectroscopy

We are looking for a highly motivated and pro-active postdoctoral researcher with a background in ultrafast spectroscopy to join our team. The candidate will support the development of new ultrafast spectroscopy instrumentation based on state-of-the-art photonic technology that will expand our measurement capacities into the far ultraviolet regime. This will provide unprecedented access to the structural and electronic dynamics encoded in the UV-chromophores of biological and chemical systems in solution and will directly contribute to several of our research projects. The project is fully funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and a Royal Society International Exchange Grant.

Independent applications

We are always looking for talented researchers to join our interdisciplinary team. Our research program focuses on developing innovative laser spectroscopy tools to investigate the dynamics of chemical and biological molecular systems and materials. We are thus particularly interested in candidates with backgrounds in physics, (bio-)chemistry and material science that are excited about molecular spectroscopy, optical technologies, and experimental science.

If you are interested in the research program of our laboratory and would like to work with us as a postdoc, Ph.D., M.Sc. or B.Sc. student, please contact Malte Oppermann.

For potential postdocs: If you hold a doctorate degree and would like to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship with our laboratory, please contact us describing your project plans and possible funding sources that you are eligible for.

For potential Ph.D. candidates: If you hold a M.Sc. degree and would like to join our laboratory on a funded stipend, please contact us and tell us why you are interested in our research program.

For M.Sc. students: If you are interested in our research and would like to do an internship (Wahlpraktikum) or thesis in our laboratory, please contact us directly. We are always motivated to train students in the research methods that we are using.
