Text: PhD position in laboratory astrochemistry controlled with electromagnetic fields at the University of Basel (Switzerland) 100% A PhD position is available with Dr Jutta Toscano at the University of Basel to investigate how molecular complexity in interstellar space emerges from the reaction of small atomic and molecular fragments. The combined use of electric fields, magnetic fields and laser light enables the precise control of the velocity and quantum state of the reacting species to understand the fundamental reaction dynamics of astrochemical processes. In this project, the effect of adding a single quantum of rotational excitation on the reaction kinetics and products will be explored. Relevant publications: J. Toscano, H. J. Lewandowski and B. R.
