The Leibniz-IPHT is an independent research institute with a close connection to the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena and a member of the Leibniz association.
The project targets development of lasers systems for ultrashort pulse generation, particularly in the Mid-IR wavelength range, refining underlying phenomena and technologies, shaping the generation by internal nonlinearity and dispersive parameters and finally test the laser in vibrational absorption spectroscopy for diagnostics.
PhD (or equivalent) in Optical Engineering / Electrical engineering / Laser Physics / Applied Physics / Engineering Physics or similar.
Your knowledge and skills:
- Solid experience in fibre laser development and ultrafast laser systems (mode-locked lasers, fibre laser frequency combs, pulse characterisation techniques, etc.).
- Desired knowledge of standard computational techniques in nonlinear optics in Matlab or Python
- A track record in scientific publications are great assets
- Fluent English (spoken and written)
German tariffs for public employees (TV-L).
The Leibniz-IPHT strives to increase the proportion of female employees. The compatibility of work and family is one of our central concerns. Therefore, women are explicitly encouraged to apply.
