Postdoc in Experimental Physical Chemistry / Chemical Physics

2-year Postdoc Position in Experimental Physical Chemistry / Chemical Physics at Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University, Denmark

Project title: Femtosecond time-resolved imaging of chemical reactions using molecules in superfluid helium nanodroplets
Starting date: November 1, 2019

Job description/research project/research area
Research
The candidate is expected to take a leading role in a novel research program, supported by a Villum Investigator Grant, in which femtosecond and picosecond laser pulses are used to study unimolecular and bimolecular chemical reactions using molecules and molecular complexes embedded in superfluid helium droplets. Specific projects include but are not limited to time-resolved imaging of molecular structure during photoinduced dimerization, exciplex formation and chiral transformations. Also, development of new techniques, based on strong laser pulses, to control the rotation and spatial alignment of molecules in helium droplets will be an important goal. This could include the application of an optical centrifuge to bring molecules to extreme rotational states, and the exploration of how angular momentum, initially deposited as rotation in molecules, transfers to the many-particle bath of helium excitations on ultrafast time scales. The majority of the experiments will take place in our laboratories at Aarhus University but activities at free electron laser facilities are also planned.

Education
The candidate is expected to engage in the education of students at all levels, i.e. PhD, master and undergraduate, through research-based training. In practice, this means leading groups composed of a few students in different projects and includes guiding them during experiments, data analysis and in the writing of research articles.

The candidate is also strongly encouraged to contribute (somewhat) to teaching in undergraduate and graduate courses. Concrete examples include integrating experimental exercises in the course ‘Reaction Dynamics’ and renewing the experimental program on polarization and phase retarders in the course ‘Lasers and Optics’

Maintenance of instruments
The candidate will be responsible for making sure that various experimental apparatus in the laboratories is maintained and serviced with timely care. In particular, this includes various vacuum components such as turbopumps, foreline pumps, and pulsed molecular valves.

Outreach
The candidate is expected to take a lead in writing research articles based on the results obtained in the various projects. In addition, the candidate may contribute to the writing of review articles on laser-induced alignment of molecules in helium nanodroplets and applications hereof. This includes both articles aimed at specialist journals as well as at popular science journals / magazines.

The candidate will be responsible for the content of the group webpage. This includes ensuring that the different research activities in the group are well-portrayed on the webpages. The webpages should address both specialists and also reach out to non-specialists notably students in elementary schools and high schools.

Scientific management
The candidate will be responsible for arranging weekly group meetings. The group meetings should be at a high scientific level and be based on members of the group presenting new results, ideas or interesting articles from the literature.
From time to time, the group meetings will be held jointly with colleagues from collaborating groups at Aarhus University or from DESY/CFEL in Hamburg.

Your profile
Applicants should hold a PhD in experimental physics or chemistry.

The candidate must be able to document extensive experience with most of the following:

  • Spectroscopy of molecules in helium nanodroplets or of molecules in supersonic beams
  • Ultrahigh vacuum technology
  • Ion and electron detectors
  • Preferentially amplified femtosecond laser systems or other laser systems.
  • Writing of scientific articles

In addition we want a candidate that is:
  • Scientifically and technically at a high level
  • Innovative
  • Able to work hard when it is needed
  • Motivated and enthusiastic about science, research and education

In short, we are looking for a bright, talented person that possesses the professional and technical skills needed to conduct research at a high level. Equally important, we want somebody who is very motivated, driven and passionate about science and who is able to convey that motivation and joy of working to the students in the group.

The candidate must be fluent in the speaking and writing of English.

Extension: The position can be extended for an additional two years, i.e. 4 years in total.

The position has a duration of 2 years, and opens from 1 October 2019. The deadline for application is 15 Augustus 2019. You will be part of my new team, including 2 PhD students as well. It is important for me to build a truly diverse team, so all interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background. Project description: Concurrent and distributed software systems govern large parts of our critical personal and social infrastructure, so their correct design is of utmost importance. Despite tremendous progress in automated verification, many challenges remain. Besides the inherent complexity and scale of modern software, there is the uncertainty on the environment in which it operates, like timing parameters, failure probabilities, and the (possibly malicious) behaviour of external agents. In this project, these challenges will be addressed by advancing and developing efficient parallel algorithms for symbolic reasoning and graph analysis. Moreover, we seek to study parallel algorithms to synthesise correct solutions automatically. In particular, I envision three subprojects:Parametric Verification and Parameter Synthesis. We will develop algorithms to verify systems with unknown parameters (time, probabilities, or other dimensions) and to synthesise constraints on such parameters, or compute optimal parameter values.Strategy Synthesis for Solving Games. We will compute winning strategies for games that arise from the interaction between a system and its environment. Synthesised strategies form the core of safe, secure, and energy efficient software.Symbolic Reasoning for Synthesis. We will develop and apply symbolic techniques, like SMT solving, abstract interpretation and invariant generation to the synthesis of concurrent systems. Approaches merging theorem proving and model checking are also welcome. The postdoc is expected to contribute to all subprojects, but in particular bring expertise in the third topic. Qualifications and specific competences: The postdoc should have a PhD degree in a related topic and will be evaluated on her his publication record, her his specific ideas for this project, and the potential to pursue an independent academic career. The successful candidate should demonstrate a strong theoretical background in logic and algorithms, broadly conceived. At the same time, s he should not shy away from programming research prototypes, to conduct performance experiments and case studies that show the potential impact of the research. Besides publishing excellent results as an independent academic researcher, the postdoc is expected to have and expand an international network, act as a creative sparring partner for the whole project, and have a coaching role towards the PhD students.

330052308Two-Year Postdoc Position: An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015 (India)Robot The School of Culture and Society at Aarhus University invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the history of ideas. The position is full-time, and is available from 1 October 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position will be part of the project An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015 . Place of employment: Jens Chr. Skous Vej 3-7, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark. The university wants its staff to reflect the diversity of society, and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of their personal background. Research context The research project is generously made available by the Danish Research Fund. The grant for the overall project is a Sapere Aude: Research Leader grant. The successful applicant will be a member of a project team of four researchers, primarily from the field of the history of ideas. The project is to be led by Associate Professor Christian Olaf Christiansen at the Department of Philosophy and History of Ideas, and will run from 2019 until 2022. The project will investigate the historical relationship between location and the intellectual history of inequality. The research objects of this study are concepts, theories and languages relating to international economic inequality from 1960 to 2015. The approach is historical-contextualist and combines conceptual and intellectual history, focusing upon contributions to academic and public debates by public intellectuals, especially economists, sociologists, historians and philosophers. Furthermore, the approach is comparative: we will compare the thought of Northern (primarily American), Indian, African (primarily Ghanaian) and South American (primarily Argentinian) public intellectuals. The project is thus divided into four subprojects (with this position focusing on India), each investigating a significant geographical area in the global discourse on economic inequality, enabling us to make new comparisons and trace connections in South-South as well as in North-South exchanges. The project will be an important contribution to the global turn in intellectual and conceptual history. Research and postdoctoral project The successful applicant will be responsible for the sub-project on India. The postdoc will study key Indian intellectuals and the intellectual history of international and global economic inequality in India. The applicant s project description should propose how to expand and detail this sub-project closely within the aim, structure and methodology of the overall research project.

Learn more at www.international.au.dk Deadline: 16 August 2019The School of Culture and Society at Aarhus University invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the history of ideas. The position is full-time, and is available from 1 October 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The position will be part of the project ‘An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015’.

Place of employment: Jens Chr. Skous Vej 3-7, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark.

The university wants its staff to reflect the diversity of society, and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of their personal background.

Research context
The research project is generously made available by the Danish Research Fund. The grant for the overall project is a ‘Sapere Aude: Research Leader’ grant. The successful applicant will be a member of a project team of four researchers, primarily from the field of the history of ideas. The project is to be led by Associate Professor Christian Olaf Christiansen at the Department of Philosophy and History of Ideas, and will run from 2019 until 2022.

The project will investigate the historical relationship between location and the intellectual history of inequality. The research objects of this study are concepts, theories and ‘languages’ relating to international economic inequality from 1960 to 2015. The approach is historical-contextualist and combines conceptual and intellectual history, focusing upon contributions to academic and public debates by public intellectuals, especially economists, sociologists, historians and philosophers. Furthermore, the approach is comparative: we will compare the thought of Northern (primarily American), Indian, African (primarily Ghanaian) and South American (primarily Argentinian) public intellectuals. The project is thus divided into four subprojects (with this position focusing on India), each investigating a significant geographical area in the global discourse on economic inequality, enabling us to make new comparisons and trace connections in South-South as well as in North-South exchanges. The project will be an important contribution to the global turn in intellectual and conceptual history.

Research and postdoctoral project
The successful applicant will be responsible for the sub-project on India. The postdoc will study key Indian intellectuals and the intellectual history of international and global economic inequality in India. The applicant’s project description should propose how to expand and detail this sub-project closely within the aim, structure and methodology of the overall research project. It is crucial that the applicant demonstrates the capacity to work within the academic field of intellectual and/or conceptual history.

With this in mind, applicants should attach a project description to their letter of application, explaining how they would carry out this research task during their prospective contract, providing details on the content, timeline and expected scientific output of the work.
The successful applicant will be expected:
  • to develop their research within the framework provided by the grant awarded, in cooperation with the team leader
  • to present their research at international meetings and publish results in peer-reviewed, international scientific journals in a timely fashion
  • to visit a leading international research institution outside Denmark for about two months to carry out research, and to do fieldwork (including interviews) in India
  • to play a role in organising research workshops, conferences, and other such activities
  • to assist the principal investigator in writing grant applications and preparing a volume of papers for publication, following the project’s main academic conference.

The postdoc is expected to participate in the daily working environment of the research team at Aarhus University.

To a limited extent, and as agreed with the PI, the successful applicant will be expected to contribute to team-taught courses at BA and MA level in her or his area of expertise.

Qualifications and job requirements

The successful applicant should have documented expertise in most of the following areas:
  • intellectual and conceptual history and methodology
