We are regularly looking for motivated new team members. In our group you will be able to advance your knowledge about laser instrumentation, vacuum instrumentation, nonlinear optics, light-matter interaction, carrier and lattice dynamics in solids, modeling of related phenomena, various spectroscopy techniques and much more.

Prerequisites are a high level of curiosity to experimentally study fastest processes in nature as well as a commitment to excellence. The capability of working in a team is of cardinal importance. Desired skill sets or research interests are in ultrafast spectroscopy, nonlinear/ultrafast optics, X-ray spectroscopy, excited state dynamics, high vacuum instrumentation. Experience in material fabrication or synthesis is a bonus.

Undergraduate students are encouraged to send their resume with their inquiry.

Prospective graduate students who are interested in applying to the Chemistry and AS&T programs at UC Berkeley are encouraged to reach out before their application.

Graduate students admitted to the Chemistry, AS&T, and programs of neighboring departments are encouraged to reach out by email. (Note: Graduate students / PhD students who are not already admitted to the graduate program at UC Berkeley must first apply for admission here)

Post-doctoral applicants should send their letter of motivation, resume, research summary and arrange for up to 3 recommendation letters. Post-doctoral applicants should have at least one of these 3 training backgrounds: ultrafast spectroscopy/scattering, condensed-matter dynamics, X-ray spectroscopy (FEL or synchrotron).
