Postdoctoral Fellow - Ultrafast processes in Iron-Based Superconductors

Physics Department, University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, USA

Position is available in 2021

This postdoc position is for one year initially, with the possibility of renewal to a second year. The position is available immediately in the Physics Department, University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, USA.

The group of Advanced Materials Dynamics is seeking a motivated postdoctoral scientist with a background in condensed matter physics and optics (experience in ultrafast spectroscopy is a plus). The research program focuses on the experimental investigation of fundamental ultrafast processes in iron-based superconductors upon photoexcitation. The employee will be responsible for independently conducting research using different experimental techniques of ultrafast spectroscopy, THz spectroscopy, and optical diffraction. The candidate will contribute to numerical data analysis, preparation of figures, and writing papers. The individual is expected to write and submit manuscripts based on the work in the laboratory.

This fellowship will provide an opportunity to work with experimentalists and theorists in the Physics Department of the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, USA. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team to conduct research in the field of Ultrafast Nonlinear Optics and Condensed Matter Physics.

Required Qualifications:

1. Ph.D. degree in Physics/Applied Physics or related field.
2. The candidate should have a strong background in condensed matter physics and optics, nonlinear optics.
3. Experience in data analysis and paper writing.
4. Good writing and communication skills.

Applications should be sent by email to Dr. Sergiy Lysenko:

sergiy{punto}lysenko {en} upr{punto}edu

Application should include:
(1) Application letter.
(2) CV.
(3) Contacts for three academic references.


All applications must be submitted electronically as soon as possible. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
