We invite applications for a postdoctoral opening in non-linear x-ray scattering in quantum materials at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The project aims at developing nonlinear x-ray scattering as a spectroscopy of topological properties of quantum materials. Our group is situated in a rich intellectual environment in ultrafast optics and x-ray scattering at the PULSE and SIMES institutes at Stanford University and leverages the proximity to world-class light sources like SSRL and the LCLS.
- Expertise in one or more of the following areas: x-ray scattering, non-resonant and resonant inelastic x-ray scattering, ultrafast x-ray science, Raman scattering, nonlinear optics, free electron laser science and a strong background in condensed matter physics.
- Excellent oral and written communication skills.
- Knowledge of synchrotron- and free-electron-laser- based x-ray scattering.
- A strong background in x-ray optics, dynamical diffraction theory and strongly correlated electron materials.
- Ability to work independently.
- A recently or soon to be completed Ph. D in physics or related field is required.
- Name and contact inormation of three references
