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.

Required Qualifications: 
  • 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.

Desired 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.
Required Application Materials: 
  • CV
  • Name and contact inormation of three references
