Position: Research Fellow in Ultrafast Photochemical Dynamics
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemistry
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Research Fellow will undertake laboratory studies of the mechanisms of photochemical reactions of organic molecules on ultrafast timescales, with the objective of understanding how these photochemical dynamics are affected by interactions with a surrounding solvent or protein. The key technique to be employed will be femtosecond time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy using both a molecular beam velocity map imaging photoelectron spectrometer and a liquid-microjet magnetic bottle photoelectron spectrometer. These experiments will be carried out at UCL. There will also be opportunities to participate in complementary experiments using the Artemis facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and at international facilities
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD degree (or be about to be awarded a PhD) in some area of laser spectroscopy studying molecular photochemistry and have experience running and trouble-shooting complex instrumentation. They will have a good publication track record, a demonstrated commitment to excellence, and excellent skills in lab. They will be required to work in a multidisciplinary, collaborative team and have effective written and verbal communication skills in English
